I'm knitting a felt case for my iPad 2. It's just temporary until the bambo0 case I ordered comes (yes, I'm getting the case by GROVE , I'll post a review when it comes.)
The back of my case will be cotton knit and the front will be felted wool, trimmed to be shed-free. I think I have the magnets figured out, and I'll use them in my case design so when I slip the ipad in it tuns off. I need to felt the magnets in to the cloth I'm knitting so they don't scratch the screen.
I used a small fridge magnet to sleep and wake the ipad, it only works in one very specific spot... the rest of the magnets seem to be for holding the apple cover closed-- I'm excited to see how 3rd-party vendors and crafters like myself use these magnets! For one thing, they will help keep my ipad snugly inside of the case. I think the Apple covers are nice... but they are a bit boring and generic for my taste. I want something that feels natural in my hands... and I want something that protects the back from scratches in my bag.
I'll post a photo when I'm done with the project.
Anyone else making a case?
