This is sized for the iPad 2nd and 3rd generation.

*#5 nylon coil zipper with 2 zipper slides 24” long
Zipper available here in 13 colors:

2 front snap pockets to hold your phone and cords.
2 way zippered main compartment is sized to hold your iPad (2nd or 3rd generation) whether you have it in one of those swivel stands, some of the keyboard stands, with an Apple magnetic cover, or just by itself.
The last photo shows the stand (you can buy them on Amazon) functioning inside the case.

The interior is cotton duck canvas.
The case is washable or dry cleanable.

The size is about 8 by 10 by 1.5 in inches. I wanted it to fit snugly around the iPad swivel stand, so you can leave it in the case and pop it open to use.

A little history on why I chose to make this bag for the iPad:
My Kindle Fire cases are really popular and cool, so I wanted to design something similar for the iPad. I borrowed an iPad from my friend, Nancy, and proceeded to make umpteen prototypes. None of them satisfied me. The iPad is simply too heavy and too thin to work properly with a case like the one I make for the Kindle Fire. (There are patterns out there, but I don't think that design is right for the iPad product.) To get that one right, I would have had to start using glue and chipboard, which doesn't sound like a lot of fun for me or for you. So I talked to Nancy more, and to my other friends who use iPads. It sounded like they all purchased a good cover or stand when they bought the iPad originally. They just wanted something to carry it in, something with handles. I found that there is a serious glut of good swivel stands out there for the iPad - I bought one for $12 on Amazon. Since those actually work and they are affordable, I designed this bag to work with them.
