Upcycled jeans iPad Sleeves
These are my latest creations, five iPad sleeves made from the denim from one pair of maternity jeans and some African kitenge fabrics. The jeans weren't worn for long, so the denim is still nice and dark but still softer than new. I loved making these, using the jeans meant I had to be a little creative to be able to cut ten pieces the same size from different parts of the jeans. It was fun to pair the pieces them up, matching front to back and then to add a piece of colourful kitenge cloth (Afircan fabrics) in a different place on each one. I left the pockets fully functional and added a snap closure. I then lined them with some lovely soft minky left over from making baby blankets, which has made them a little bit padded and lovely and soft to protect the screen. Oh and I have been told this size pouch is also perfect as a nappy wallet!
