How-To: Self-Cleaning iPad Sleeve

Craft & Design Home Yarncraft

Joelle at Re-Nest shares this project for creating a (slightly) self-cleaning iPad sleeve from an old sweater and pillow case.

We love our new iPad, and while the device is fun to use it sure does get smudged easily. While looking at an old pillowcase made of super soft material (like our eyeglass cleaning cloth) and part of a sweater we had leftover from when we made a laptop sleeve, we came upon a simple solution. We would use the pillowcase and sweater to make an iPad sleeve. By combining the material from the sweater with that of the pillowcase we would have a sleeve that would not only protect our iPad, but it would also provide an easy way to remove smudges due to the super soft lining made from the pillowcase.

I imagine you could size the pattern down to make a similar case for your iPhone or iTouch as well!

    I followed a tutorial I found on Sew Mama Sew to make a case for my iPod Touch. It called for a layer of batting to pad and protect the device. I ended up using terry cloth for the lining, and because it was double-sided, it provided just the right amount of batting, eliminating the need for that third layer! The terry is nice and soft, and sorta keeps my iPod clean…
