But then I tried to put my iPad in it, and it didn't fit. I hadn't accounted for how the opening of a zipper is smaller than its length. I can't show it to you, because in a fit of determination I immediately deconstructed it to analyze its measurements and how much fabric loss I had planned for in the seams and how much I really had. I needed to know what I had done wrong.
But look what I nice job I did with that zipper!

I never felt upset, just determined. I designed a slightly larger case, and made this:
