I hate how slippery the back of the pad is. But I love how thin the pad is. I don't like cases much. And am about to buy a dodo case to have something nice to carry around along my targus slip case. So zaggs sells a leather back. But their leather says "Zagg" in huge letters in the center of the back. Will not buy it due to that reason. Then spc or something like that makes a leather back with the apple logo cut out. Looks good, but I'm afraid of the edges of the apple logo comming up. So I decided I'm going to go to the fabric shop an get some nice leather that will be grip like, and hopefully black with a nice texture. Some spray adhesive and there you go. I'm just affraid of how I'm going to cut it perfectly. Figure at an angle on the edges to keep it from coming off.. Any ideas or tips before my next weekend project??
