Shortly after I received the mini pad, I measured it and made my own case. I was skeptical of the cases already available on the market, worried that they might not fit properly. Maybe they based the design on rumoured specs instead of the actual model? You can never be sure.
There was measurement and planning, and cutting and then sewing. Still, the final product was just a draft, because I wanted a snap button to secure the front flap.
I used the case for a while actually. Until Siew decided that she would really make me a case. She had talked about it, but you know, there is always some form of time lapse between planning and doing. In between, we did get down to buying the correct buttons.
One day, Siew claimed she was doing some sewing, and voila, there was this lovely brown envelope waiting for me. I asked how long she took and how she decided on the measurements. “What do you mean? I just took the iPad, put it down and just draw around it, lah.”
Such a maker. The case is perfect, and beautiful. I am not sure why I wanted a felt case in the first place, but maybe that can be a project for another iteration of the tablet.
