Been working on this case for my wife's Ipad in hopes that the next time my boys drop it, I wont have to replace the digitizer... (you may have read about the replacement process a few posts ago).
I had done some 'figurin a year or so ago. Just think, if I'da built it then I wouldn't have had to replace the screen! Laid it out and started cutting.
Tried something new- molding the leather by soaking it and keeping it
formed to the shape I wanted until it dried out. Had to make an Ipad
"blank" to hold the shape but it seems to have worked pretty well! Also the first time I've ever used a stitching awl. Pretty sad considering I teach leather working in one of my classes...
All molded and ready for some stain / super sheen.
Viola. I used Range Tan for the stain and whatever Tandy sells as Super Sheen- Superflow something or other... *LOVE* how the color turned out, kind of has a distressed look.
Can you see the one thing I forgot to do?!!?
Yup, its missing the hole for the charger. Oh well... Don't think it will be to hard to pull a few stitches out and cut a hole there.
Might still add a handle and make a few changes but she's going to use it for a while and we'll see how it works. Almost makes me want to give up the Stainless Steel one I made for mine! The leather sure is lighter!
