Instructions

  1. I’m using a place mat I bought at the local department store. The felt is about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Fold the place mat in half.
  3. Sew the long side (opposite of the fold) and one short side.
  4. Draw a line on the top side as shown. Draw a straight line on the bottom side. (The sleeve is currently a little bit too long; these lines indicate the dimensions that will make the iPad easy to remove.)
  5. Cut along the lines.
  6. Cut out a rectangular piece of felt (you can use the piece you just cut from the length). It should be a little less long than the width of the sleeve.

Finishing Touch
Use a piece of neon silk thread to sew both ends to the sleeve. This makes a little handle for easy carrying.
