iPad Cover and a Giveaway

The giveaway is now closed.
When my friend Lori recently turned 40, I knew just what to make for her. She recently got an iPad and she really "needed" a homemade cover. You see, Lori loves handcrafted items.
Here is Lori's reaction. Do you think she appreciated it?

When I set out to make this for Lori I looked for tutorials online and didn't really find what I was looking for. So I went to Etsy and looked there. I ended up finding the pattern that was just what I was looking for at the Etsy shop Pink Poodle Bows.
The pattern works for iPads, Kindles, and Nooks. There are also two options for the pockets, one large pouch type pocket and two smaller file like pockets. I opted for the smaller pockets. The pattern was well written and went together very easily. And I loved how it turned out.

And do you know what?? Today you get the chance to win your very own  pdf pattern from Pink Poodle Bows. If you would like to chance to win a Pink Poodle Bows pattern of your choice follow the steps below.

2) Go to the Pink Poodle Bows Etsy site and choose which pattern you would choose if you won.
3) Come back here and let me know that you like the Pink Poodle Bows Facebook page and which pattern you would choose.

This is definitely the best homemade IPad cover I have seen. I would definitely choose the IPad cover pattern.
