Did you get a new electronic gadget recently? You can make a case for it to express your personal style in many ways. For an upscale case try using Ultrasuede, the fake suede you can sew with. It feels like real suede, but it’s on the expensive side. Maybe you can find a sale on it or find the right size you need in the remnants. Ask when it usually goes on sale.
I knitted a case for my mom’s Kindle, using a National Geographic magazine as my size guide (she has the larger Kindle). The yarn was a little bit thick and I used large needles, so the result was a pretty good padding. Then I lined it with a coordinating fabric so the Kindle would slide easily in and out. I added a small pocket to the fabric lining for the cord. She likes it a lot.
With the iPad being rather large to carry, I can’t help but wonder if men will start carrying a “man purse” for it. No doubt it will look something like computer cases. I know at least one man who carries a computer case with no computer in it when flying–my dh. And I bet others do too. lol Perhaps new jackets will be showing up in the stores with a large inner pocket for the iPad.
