Today I’m sharing with you a free sewing pattern for a Wool iPad Case which is perfect to make as a gift for your favorite guy; if you like this pattern, you may also like my Dad’s Travel Bag Sewing Pattern.
Head’s up! Father’s Day is June 21st, if you haven’t thought about what you’d like to give your Dad (or another special guy in your life) for Father’s Day you might want to get on that.
Last year I wrote a sewing pattern for the BERNINA WeAllSew.com for a travel bag designed just for a guy. It was made from gray canvas and featured leather trim (you can find that tutorial here).
This year they asked me to come up with another project that would be just right for Dad. After chatting with my husband about it (I wanted to get some input from a Dad *wink*), we decided that an iPad case would be a great option.
My husband has a protective case on his iPad, but it doesn’t hold anything else but his iPad. He said that it would be helpful to have a case for his iPad so that he could also carry a few things. Like headphones, a pen, receipts, etc…
I designed this iPad case with an exterior back zipper pocket; it’s just the right size to throw a few extra items in.
The case is made from Gray Wool and has a flannel lining. I took him with me when I was shopping for the fabrics, so I knew I’d pick up something that he’d like. If you like to make a similar one, check the suitings department of your local fabric store for supplies.
As a finishing touch, I added a leather-stamped monogram to the front of the pouch. Don’t be intimidated by this step; it was crazy easy, so easy in fact, that I added it at the very last second…

Hi, I just wanted to let you know I love your tutorial and I’ve featured it in my DIY Father’s Day Gifts roundup: http://www.shesgotthenotion.com/2015/06/10-for-tuesday-diy-fathers-day-gifts.html
This is so awesome
Love the wool
Hi, i was just wondering where you buy the lovely gold zips from? I can’t seem to find any nice zips that aren’t insanely expensive! (I live in the UK so if they aren’t available over here do you think you could suggest an alternative shop?) Thanks so much, love the case x

I got them at JoAnn, they are actually jeans zippers
I love your ideas please send email on new items when available
Can you tell me what size IPad this would accommodate? I’d like to look into making this instead of purchasing a case..
