iPad Case, Moleskine Style

Yesterday my mother reaffirmed that she rocks!

iPad – classic design

In about 3 hours she literally cut & pasted a home-made iPad cover, based on a Moleskine design (more on that design can be found here).

First she measured the cardboard sections needed, next came the Buckram cover material (dark blue).

Using special glue, she then carefull folded the buckram around the edges of the cardboard sections, and added strong linen to the folds.

The outside is looking clean and professional!

Next up: adding the elastic band, one for the outside and four for holding the iPad in place.

Next up: adding the lining paper. This turned out to be tricky as she had to fit in the four elastic bands for holding the iPad.

And now, we test the case!

Seems to fit.

Notes for the next one

Use more linen and less paper, especially on the folds.

Get stronger elastic band material.

Use a different technique for adding the elastic bands.
