Felt iPad case


I haven't made any crafty item for a while and decided to make an iPad sleeve using felt fabric.


This iPad sleeve was hand sewn and embellished with a pair of bees. I wanted to give the 3-D look to the bees so I stuffed them with some fiber.


Below is a closed-up look of the bees.
