As one of my last projects of 2012, I finally found time to make the Indygo Junction’s Coronation Clutch pattern I won from the Sew Weekly (my post on winning earlier this year is here). Even the fabric was included in the giveaway! I knew I wanted it to be a gift for my mom from the moment the pattern and fabric arrived. The blues are not quite her colors, but the bold flowers reminded me of her. Plus, the clutch is large enough for an iPad, and she’s long needed a protective case for her own iPad when she’s out and about.
In the days before Christmas, I quickly stitched the cute little case up.
I paid careful attention to pattern placement and aligning the pattern at the seams…
… and to forming the pretty little pleats on the front.
The lining pairs perfectly with the bright green from the exterior fabric.
And, though the pattern only suggests one interior pocket, I added a second because you never know when you’ll need more pockets. In addition, the whole case is interfaced with the same foam I used for my own iPad case.
Merry Christmas, Mom! I hope this cute case keeps your iPad well protected.
