DIY | Neon Envelope Clutch/iPad Case

1.14.2012
The envelope clutch (here) has been by far my most popular DIY, and I have been waiting for the perfect moment to update it. Lately, I have had many requests to create an iPad case tutorial and thought it would be great to design a new envelope clutch that can double as an iPad case. The measurements are perfect to slip in your iPad, but can also be used for a night out. Along with this, I wanted to feature my current love for neon.  Pops of color!  Love! Full tutorial after the break...

(click tutorial to enlarge)
(Please note:  for anyone who printed out the tutorial last night, we made a slight change to one of the measurements)
Materials:
Leather/Vinyl, Xacto Knife, Screw Back Button Stud (here), Thread, Sewing Machine, Spray Paint

Steps:
  1. Cut out patterns A & B from given measurements.
2. Spray paint pattern B to desired color.
3. Attach button stud on pattern A, 4 3/4” from point. Sew a straight stitch along pattern B. Place pattern A over B as shown.
4. Sew only triangle point of pattern A onto rectangle B.
5. Sew along edge as shown.
6. Cut a small slit using an Xacto knife, on upper flap directly over the button stud when folded over.
7. Voila a SwellMayde Clutch/iPad Case!
