Instruc­tions

  1. I’m using a place mat I bought at the local depart­ment store. The felt is about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Fold the place mat in half.
  3. Sew the long side (oppo­site of the fold) and one short side.
  4. Draw a line on the top side as shown. Draw a straight line on the bot­tom side. (The sleeve is cur­rently a lit­tle bit too long; these lines indi­cate the dimen­sions that will make the iPad easy to remove.)
  5. Cut along the lines.
  6. Cut out a rec­tan­gu­lar piece of felt (you can use the piece you just cut from the length). It should be a lit­tle less long than the width of the sleeve.

Fin­ish­ing Touch
Use a piece of neon silk thread to sew both ends to the sleeve. This makes a lit­tle han­dle for easy carrying.

One thought on “Ancient Fabric and Tech Tablet Enjoy 10 Minute Meeting

  1. This struck me because of the combination of felt, one of the worlds oldest fabrics, and some of the most modern technology. Both classics in their own right and makes me wonder what the inventors of felt would think of an iPad.
