This year my husband asked me to make an iPad case for him so that he could throw it into his bag without worrying about it getting all scratched up. I made the collar by doing a dc up front and a hdc in the back. The bow tie is just a rectangle with yarn wrapped around it. For the case itself I did a sc, and folded it in half and stitched up the sides. It's not perfect, but it does the job and it was made with love. This was the first gift (besides all kinds of food) that I've made for him and it was really fun.
