I’m always incredibly inspired by the awesome handmade creations over at P.S. I Made This. Graceful ankle wrap sandals, pom pom necklaces, ruffle t-shirts, ways to customize your own clothes with the D&G paint inspired trend, this site is the ultimate in fashion do-it-yourself bags, clothing, and jewelry and offers an inventive solution to inexpensive style. My most recent favorite is this preppy chic iPad case, which can almost be mistaken for a fashionable clutch. Made out of an inflatable travel pillowcase, electrical tape, and gorilla cloth, I love the rattan stripe pattern of her original version, but you can pick out your own pattern and customize it when you select your pillowcase.

Called the Rolls Royce of iPad cases, DODOcases are a slim, elegant, foldable iPad case that is designed to stand up on its own, and protect your iPad screen from scratches with its faux leather exterior and bamboo interior. The case smoothly wraps around the curves and grommets of your iPad, and opens like a book to expose the screen so that you have access to all of its buttons and functions. Following its book-inspired design, the cover is constructed using traditional book-binding techniques and also has an attached elastic strap which allows the user to securely keep the lid closed when not in use. Currently, there is only one color available which is a black exterior and a red interior, which I like for its polished, unisex flair, that retails for $59.95.
