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.
