There is no need for zippers or Velcro, making this an easier sewing project. The Varsity messenger bag is just the right size to hold a full sized iPad. Please confirm the size of your iPad first as dimensions for newer and future iPads can change as they are released. The finished measurements of the Varsity bag are; bag body is 10.5″ x 10.5″ and the strap measures 26″ from shoulder to the bag body.
