You will need:

Sewing needle and white thread

Pencil and squared paper (you can download some here)

You can simply copy the patch above if you like the ‘Hands Off’ approach or,  Draw the words out on some square paper. If you are gifted in the art of cross stitch you could always stitch yourself a patch.  Once you have your patch stitched, sew onto the ipad cover, simple.

Please forgive the quality of the images,  they were taken way back in the summer.  I am sure my new camera would have done a much better job.

As always, I would love to pictures of your finished items on my Facebook page
