Superhero Bonanza — Part 1

It really has been a while since my last post, but that’s not to say that there hasn’t been lots of crafting going on in the background! Unfortunately, uni work has really taken off which means that instead of crafting and blogging, I have been crafting and reading/note taking/assignment writing. Guess which one is more fun?!

The beginning of the month saw a big birthday for my boyfriend. He is a huge fan of superheroes (I can’t quite emphasise just how much of a fan he is) so the theme of his presents was an easy one to choose, to say the least!

I decided on making him an iPad case and started researching on Pinterest for ideas and tutorials. There are a lot out there but when I came across this one I knew I had a winner.

This one seemed much more useful than all the pouches I had found as it was sturdy, could stand up, and looked like a ‘proper’ case. The tutorial also made it seem doable — always a plus! I had so much fun finding fabric and settled on this one from Frumble. I loved that it wasn’t just ‘superhero themed’ but actually feature the DC Comics characters.

Putting it together was relatively straightforward. Obviously it isn’t perfect; my sewing skills have a long way to go but I am really rather proud of it!
