99% of the time my fabric stash dictates the kind of project I’m going to make. In this case, I perused my local and fabulous fabric shop, City Craft, and fell in love with the hot pink echino sunglasses paired with the day of the dead fabric by Alexander Henry. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make when I bought the fabric, but knew I would come up with something quickly. And sure enough, Christmas was coming and I was in need of a new iPad case for the airplane ride. Done and done.
I tripled checked my measurements and constructed it pretty quickly. I wanted the case to be durable and protective so I used fuseable interfacing on the backside of the echino fabric and then continued on.
Time to get the iPad…
And it doesn’t fit. . .due to the fuseable interfacing that I used. So the big lesson learned here – when using fuseable interfacing add an extra inch or two to your project and double check your measurements. Even though my iPad doesn’t fit, I now have a new clutch to take out on a night on the town with the gals.
