iPad Accessory Case

My husband asked me to knit him a case for his iPad accessories (cords, iPad pen, and earbuds). He wanted to keep all the accessories in his iPad case but didn't want them to scratch the iPad. I asked him what color and size he wanted it and got to work!

Here is the finished work:


...and the pattern:
