new Juki + new iPad = quilted iPad pouch


It's my first project on the new machine! I offset the closure so I can charge it while in its pouch.


I really like this print. I think I got the last bit of it from Sew, Mama, Sew, and I am so happy with how extra fluffy the clouds look after quilting around them.


I didn't take tutorial pictures because it was so straightforward. The pouch is made of two quilted pieces and two lining pieces 9x11 (start with quilt sandwiches at least 10x12 and cut them down after quilting). Stitch the sides and bottom of both quilted pieces together with right sides together. Stitch the lining pieces together the same way, leaving an opening for turning at the bottom. Then turn the lining right side out and lay it in the pouch so the right sides are together. Then nestle a small elastic hair band in between the two layers. These are so useful and you get so many for $2!


Stitch around the top edge (I backstitch over the elastic for a total of three passes over it). Flip, press the edge and topstitch. Sew on the button and close up the inside lining.  Fast. My husband asked for one immediately and I think most of you would agree that is a wonderful feeling!

Very cute! Where were you last week when I was working out my own design? LOL! I buy my hair elastics at the dollar store - you get a lot for a buck, there!!

Love the baggie. It is very cute. So is the fabric you used. Those hair ties are handy little suckers aren't they? I have a tin of them in all different colours.

Congrats on the first project on the juki. Your quilting really gave those clouds some life! I hope you love the Juki and that it gives you great joy.

Love it! I made one for my iPad with some leftover Moda Punctuation charms made into zig-zags. I used velcro on mine and it works great. Those clouds look super!

I've had a Juki serger for I guess 20 years with not one speck of trouble in all that time. It's fast and I love to speed stitch! Love it, actually.

The iPad pouch is darling. I like that you thought ahead and designed it so you can charge without removing the iPad. Smart! Thanks for the directions, you make it sound easy.

This weekend, I VOW to make a pouch for my iPad. If it is that easy, there should be nothing to stop me. Yours is fantastic!
