iPad Folding Case Camera Hole Tutorial

This tutorial is how to install a camera hole on your already made Sew Spoiled iPad Folding case. The epattern is available in Sew Spoiled's Etsy shop
Disclaimer: Please be careful trying this on your iPad folding cases. You can ruin a great case if you are not careful.

Step 1: Place a mark on the iPad case where the camera is on your device.
✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄
Step 2: Cut a scrap piece of fabric measuring 3"X 3". Center the 3"X 3" fabric over the camera marking.
Pin in place, do NOT pin the elastic. You can even fold the elastic over the corner so it stays out of the way.
✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄
Step 3: Draw a rectangle measuring .5" X .75" around the camera marking.
✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄
Step 4: Sew around the rectangle. You might have to sew three sides and then adjust the case and sew the last side of the rectangle.
This is how it should look when the rectangle is completely sewn.
✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄
Step 5: Cut a line inside the stitched rectangle, then cut tiny lines toward the corners of the rectangle. 
With super sharp scissors carefully cut away the excess fabric and interfacing. Be extremely careful not to cut through the rectangle stitching.
✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄
Step 6: Push the fabric through the hole and press the fabric with a hot iron.
✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄
Step 7: Sew around the rectangle opening.
✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄
Step 8: Trim away the excess fabric and use Fray Check to cover the raw edges. 
✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄✄
Step 9: Place your iPad back into your case!
Enjoy playing on your iPad!
Best wishes and tons of stitches!
