iPad mini sleeve

I’ve been wanting to make a sleeve for my iPad mini for a while now. I wanted something that could just slip inside my purse and protect the mini from keys or other sharp whatnots tumbling around in my purse. I found these wool felt sleeves on Etsy, but decided I could just make one myself.

I wanted to use a gray wool felt, and add a bit of color with a band to hold my stylus. So here’s how it turned out:

I just used wool felt for the body material, and some colored knit elastic for the stylus holder. In case I wanted to carry it around in the sleeve but not in my purse, I made an elastic band to secure the mini in place so it wouldn’t slide out the open end.

Nice and simple. I even sewed with bright blue thread to add a little color. I love how this turned out and hopefully will get some good use out of it.
