Intro: DIY IPad Case (Griffin Elan/Moleskin Style)
Taking inspiration from the Griffin Elan Portfolio and the Moleskin notebook, here's my attempt at an iPad case...
Step 1: Materials 1
Fun foam for iPad backing and canvas substitution for book binding hard card.
Step 2: Materials 2 & 3
Hair bands to hold iPad. These hair bands have a rubber backing that helps secure the iPad.
Not pictured: xacto, spray mount, thread, needle, paper, book cloth.
Step 3: Foam Backing
3 pieces of fun foam cut to size to hold iPad (2 for upper frame, 1 for backing). Template was inspired from the original iPad packaging.
Step 4: Folder Pocket
Cut and glued paper together to make a folder insert for case innards.
Step 5: Binding Inside
Cut and bound book cloth over stripped canvases.
Step 6: Binding Outside
Step 7: Time to Sew the Hair Bands Onto the Fun Foam Backing
Step 8: Hair Bands Sewn Over and Underneath Corners
Step 9: Back of Fun Foam With Hair Bands Sewn
Step 10: Backing Final Step
Cut another piece of fun foam to cover back with exposed edges of hair bands for a firm gluing to book binding.
Step 11: Elastic Band
Hammered slits with screwdriver to back of binding to secure elastic band.
