How to: Coffee-Stained iPad Smart Cover

Simeon from Two Lives Left just snagged a new iPad 3, and with it, a warm leather smart cover. He says, "I’m not too careful with my cover. I chose the leather cover thinking the more scuffed and damaged it got, the better. I wanted it to look worn. Unfortunately after only two weeks of use it did start to look worn — on one side only."

The asymmetry simply wouldn't do for Simeon, so he decided to give his leather the worn-in look he was hoping it'd develop. So, he stained it. With coffee.

created at: 08/25/2010

The availability of the iPad has brought on lots of clever carrying and nesting options: those that make it look like an iMac, an old arcade console, or a composition notebook. But this tutorial from Eighteenth Century Agrarian Business is the kind we like best: a custom, fabric option, along the thousands we've seen for iPods and mobile phones, that simply stores and protects.

"This case has really served me well. I carry the iPad with me everywhere I go and throw it in my purse, which is always filled with randomness. Since it's just two folds and really just about 3 lines of stitching - this is really easy."
