Can I use batting? Sure. Why not? It
s your sexy iPad cover, you do what you wanna do, uh-huh (tip of the hat to Cartman). I used fusible ﬂeece because it has a little more body than battingand because 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.
