I got an early Christmas present yesterday… a new iPad. I had previously (not) been using an old one that my husband got from a previous job over 5 years ago. Oh how quickly technology falls behind. It was slow and sluggish and was a drag to use, so I mostly didn’t. But in finding new needs and uses for something better, we took advantage of a good sale. I love a good sale!
I love when new belongs lead to necessary sewing projects!
Thanks to a good nights sleep and the baby sleeping until 6! WAHOO! I woke up a little extra early this morning to whip up a pretty little cover for the new iPad. I love how it turned out!
The process took me back to the days when I made bags and projects like this all the time! My skills were a bit rusty and I had to do some improvising along the way. lol. Like the orange around the top – that was because I forgot to add extra length so it didn’t just end right at the top of the iPad. And it fits just a little snug… I forgot to add some ease. ha. But it’s good and it works. I added a little pocket and sewed a tiny section to hold the pencil.
I am excited to use this in style… along with keeping it well protected. The inside is fleece, so it’s nice and soft.
I can’t wait to share with you all the things I create on it! (this new present is partially the reason why I sped up the creating of this blog. I want to document my progress as I return to my artistic roots and share my journey as I explore my artsy fartsy side).
Enjoy more posts...

Welcome! Hi! I’m Diane Bohn, the designer of From Blank Pages patterns! I’m so excited to “meet” you today and to have you visit my shop! I have some fun things to share and hope you enjoy the “show”. My Story I am a wife and mother of 6 young kids (ages 2 to almost 12), and it’s awesome! I made my first quilt when I was expecting my first child in 2009, and made one for every baby since then. Though it wasn’t until my 3rd baby that I really dove head first into the world of quilting! And I have never looked back. My quilt journey has been one of creativity and excitement, as well as quilting for charity, and for my own therapy. It’s pulled me through a lot of post-partum depression, as well as the roller coaster of life. But I love it! Nothing beats having this creative outlet to spend my time on and call my job. My favorite part of quilting is the community!! Hands down! I love the interaction – even if it’s only over social media, I LOVE getting to know people, as well as seeing all the beautiful things you make with my patterns! It’s so rewarding! So thank you for your support, excitement and enthusiasm for my designs. Oh, and I’ll add, I started designing patterns in 2011 and it quickly became my favorite aspect of quilting. I could design patterns all day if someone would make them all for
