Pattern Description:

If you're like me, you've gotten really attached to your iPad and like taking it with you just about everywhere. But who wants to carry around a second bag - like dragging a purse around isn't enough??? So this bag does double duty - It's a roomy purse with inside and outside pockets for all your essentials, plus it has a quilted pouch that's iPad sized, to slip in and out as you need it. And if you don't have an iPad, or don't carry it around with you, the pouch can be left home or used for other items in the purse.

Pattern has complete easy to follow, step-by-step illustrated instructions, so all you'll need is basic sewing and quilting skills. Two different closing flap styles are included in the pattern. You'll need cotton fabric, batting, and thread, plus heavy duty webbing if you don't want fabric straps. You'll also need a large button or snap for the front closure.
