DIY iPad Cover

I recently made then unraveled a bright pink beanie. I had no idea what to use the yarn for until my mom told me that I should make an iPad cover for my iPad since I have no idea where its case is. Using this bright pink yarn and my 4.00mm crochet hook, I began to make my iPad cover/case/pouch. I started by ch 35 and crocheting the moss stitch across. I continued crocheting the moss stitch until it was as long as I wanted it to be.
Isn't the moss stitch so pretty?

A few months ago, I took a sewing class with a friend from church and had leftover cloth from a previous sewing project. Isn't the pattern adorable? I love how you can see these adorable sheep and their butts. (lol)

So, I decided to use this cloth as my lining for my iPad cover.
I cut a long strip from the cloth and hemmed the ends with my sewing machine. Next, I sewed it to my crocheted strip with my sewing machine as well. Tada!


Next, I folded the cover in half and sewed the sides shut.
 Tada!! My iPad cover is finished!!
 This is the inside of the pouch:

That's it for today's post! Talk to y'all in my next one. Byeee!
Happy crocheting and crafting!

Update on Life

Hey everyone! So sorry it has been a long time since I posted something. Lots of things have prevented me from blogging. Some of them are...

1. New House?
My family and I are in the process of moving. We are hoping to move to an area a lot closer to our church friends, and I am really excited. Although the house is a lot smaller than our current home, it is still really nice, and the location is great.

2. School...
Ugh... It is junior year for me, so I am really struggling with AP and SAT homework and tutoring sessions. Homework and weekly quizzes flood my free time, and I can't seem to find enough time to work on any of my crochet projects. I am surprised my brain has not shut down on me. All my AP tests are later next year while my SAT test date is slowly encroaching upon me. It is really stressful and an emotional roller coaster, but thankfully, I am surviving (kinda...).

3. Puberty:
I am a teen struggling through puberty. It is surprisingly not as bad as I thought it would be, but it is not the most enjoyable experience. But it is also a good time of my life as I am going through growing pains in my physical body and my spiritual life. Hopefully by the end of this experience, I will be a butterfly ready for the real world and adulthood. :P

4. Holidays!!
Ah, winter break... I can't wait to get finals over with so that I can spend three weeks with you, winter break. I am currently studying for three finals, and they are surprisingly going well. I am determined to finish my finals early, so that I can quickly forget about school and embrace my time off. However, my joy will be short-lasting since I will be studying for my SAT. It is coming up soon, so please pray that I will be able to do my best on the SAT and not have to take it again!! :)

Speaking of the holidays, I will be posting updates about my Christmas project, so stay tuned for that!

That's it for today's post. There will be a new post this Saturday, so keep your eyes peeled for it. Till then, happy crocheting and crafting! :D
