DIY iPad Envelope Clutch

I got a new iPad from my school and I wanted to make an envelope clutch or case for it. The steps to make this clutch are very simple. I used faux leather upholstery fabric I purchased from Hobby Lobby.

I had to make a second envelope iPad clutch because my dog Duke chewed the turquoise one 🙁 and that is why my example is black.
