One benefit of the rectangularization of gadget design is that it's easy to make cases for said gadgets. I mean look at, say, a guitar or a typewriter for comparison's sake; the cases made to hold those things look like hundreds of man-hours went into them, and I would not want to model them in a 3D program. Then you look at the iPad, which you could design a case for using an Etch-a-Sketch.
Maybe that's why the thing's been out less than two weeks, but Etsy's already awash in handmade iPad sleeves. Or maybe the sleeves are simply retitled netbook holders. In any case there's tunnnz, but here are a few of our faves, all in varieties of wool:
Ferruto Bags' Wolf iPad Sleeve is made from "3mm-thick 100% woolen anthracite mottled German felt which is eco-friendly, breathable, water water-repellent and stain-resistant by nature."
Stash's grey herringbone wool messenger bag is lined with cotton canvas and can be custom-ordered with different fabric.
Byrd and Belle's 100% felted wool iPad Sleeve is so popular there's a waiting list to get one. We love that beautifully simple hand-dyed leather strap.
