This crocheted iPad case is made in an elegant mandala design. It is much prettier than the typical industrial designed cases and has a personal touch. Fits the iPad 2 & other large iPads. It has a button enclosure and one can easily hook up headphones and the charger. Follow along to the video tutorial on how to create this beautiful case.
