50 Days of Holiday Gifts: The DIY Option

Day 4: Sew an iPad case (with help)

What’s more personal than a gift you make yourself? To avoid “it’s the thought that counts” territory, sign up for Crimson Tate’s iPad Class on Nov. 14. You’ll sew a fabric tablet case with expert supervision and take it home ready to wrap. Bring your own material or buy some at the store. Crimson Tate stocks cheerful, modern, and whimsical prints, like reindeer on bikes. $35 class fee ($15 credit for in-store fabric purchase). Register online. 845 Massachusetts Ave., 426-3300, crimsontate.com
