My Creative Space...

Since I opened my shop yesterday I need to photograph some more things I've been making.


These are iPad sleeves.


It was Shane's idea for the simple design. I made him that black one because he's not a crafty/patterny kind of guy so all black was his request.


No, we don't have an iPad yet, but Shane made me a pretend one out of wood (how sweet is that). It's to the exact measurements of a real one so I could make sure they fitted perfectly.


They're made from old clothes and fabric I found at op shops and lined with polar fleece.

So photography is what I'll be doing today (if the sun comes out a bit more). Go and check out all the other crafty people at Kootoyoo.

wish I had an ipad so I could get a great cover!

Amanda said...

Those are really nice! And how sweet of your hubby.

Kirsty said...

The fact that Shane made you the fakey out of wood is just about the best thing ever.

I'm sure they'll sell like hotcakes.

Jill said...

Just had a peek at your new shop!! Looks great! Hope you sell lots and lots!
Those ipad covers are a great idea too!

Cotton Kiwi said...

My other half got to play with an iPad yesterday and is trying to convince me that I really want one:) I think that I am quite happy with my iPhone.

Wendy said...

Congrats on your shop! I know you'll do well...your stuff is gorgeous!

Ruby Star said...

they look fabulous and what a handy hubby. good stuff.

Gypsy said...

Oh those are so lovely! I love that you've made them from old clothes. Isn't Shane a sweetie for making you a wooden iPad - will you make a children's 'pretend iPad' from it when you have finished? Complete with it's own cover, of course.

Great idea Hannah! I want (not need) an Ipad and a cover of course ;-)

Kate said...

They look great! I think they'll sell like hot cakes. Makes me kinda wish I had an ipad, even though I'm still not completely sure what they are.

Kristi said...

Love is helping your wife get crafty and creative. Well done on opening your shop, I have thought about it but just don't know if I have the discipline/time to do it. Mabey...one day

michelle said...

great idea. i'm sure it's what all the best dressed ipads will be wearing

Chantal said...

Brilliant idea Hannah!

Emma said...

These are gorgeous - so neat and pretty. iPad sleeves are on my list of makes too... along with covers for digitizer/graphics tablets - I looked for one online for my new tablet and couldn't find any!

Seeing as you're in Aus (not jealous much!!) and I'm in the UK (get me out of here) I hope I won't be competing with yours... I'll be on folksy not etsy - can't be doing with using dollars!! ;)

PS. Do call in at my blog to take part in my giveaway if you'd like to. It's at http://amoebahandmade.blogspot.com/2010/05/thats-my-pic-just-there-and-my-first.html - look forward to seeing you there!
