Supplies Needed:
-1 fat quarter (18 x 22 inches) for exterior-1 fat quarter for interior-1 fat quarter for pockets-thread-batting-fusible fleece-magnetic buckle, snap or velcro-book boardNote: A quick note about using directional fabrics. Generally, in a fat quarter, a directional fabricsuch as a novelty print, is oriented along the longer (22”) side. For it to end up facing the rightdirection in this project, it needs to be oriented along the 18” side. If you are going to use a fabricwhere this matters, you will need to buy 3/4th of a yard of fabric rather than a fat quarter.
Step 1 - Press Fabric
Have the cat press all your fabric (or do it yourself).

Step 2 - Prepare exterior
Cut the exterior fat quarter in half width-wise so you have two pieces that measures 18 x 11 inches.(Note, this is a directional fabric and it is oriented so the short edge is on the bottom)Cut a piece of fusible fleece that is 18 x 11 inches. Fuse this to the wrong side of your exterior fabric asshown.

Can I use batting? Sure. Why not? It

s fusible. If you use a standard batting, you will want to take the time to quiltthrough the two layers at this point.
Step 3 - Prepare Interior
Take your interior fat quarter and cut it in half width-wise so you have two pieces that are 18 x 11” Thentrim 1 inch off one end of each piece so you end up with two pieces that are 17 x 11”. These will befolded in half (8.5 x 11”) to form interior. The folded edge is toward the center.At this point, you may need to take a minute to trim things up so that they are roughly the same size.Not all fat quarters are created equal and we don

t want things to get too out of whack.Note: There will be bookboard inserted between the interior and the exterior to give the portfolioa hard cover. I did not pad the interior pieces, but it may be something you may want to considerdoing, especially if you have a real iPad, and not just a fake one like me. This would be the timeto do it.
Step 4 - iPad Pocket
We are now going to make a pocket for the iPad. With whatever fabric you want to use, cut a squarethat is 10 x 10 inches.Fold the square diagonally, right sides together to form a triangle.
