Sew Spoiled iPad Folding Case Question

I received this question today...
"Hello! I purchased your iPad cover pattern a few weeks ago and am just sitting down to put it together (so excited!). I was wondering where you have found masonite. Local hardware stores don't seem to carry it. Just curious if you had any tips on where to find it, or a similar product that could be substituted. Thanks!"
I thought it might be helpful to make a blog post about what I use and where to find masonite.
You should be looking for Mona Lisa Gessoed Masonite
I like the 9"X 12" size for this pattern.
You can find Gessoed masonite panels at Michaels in the canvas painting section. 
It looks like this...
Artist paint on these panels, so that is why you will see them in the canvas section.
If you travel to Home Depot, Lowes or a hardware store you will have to ask for hardboard. It is basically compressed chip board. Also make sure to wear a mask when cutting this type of board. The glue chemicals used on chip board are not very good for your lungs.
I hope this helps! 
Happy Holidays Everyone!
We are enjoying the Christmas snow! 
Oh, and I did receive a Silhouette craft cutter! It is awesome! 
Can't wait to share more!
