We used a disappearing 9 patch technique with 1/4" seams.
Also start by taking a piece of cardboard and a marker to trace an iPad to use as a template and for reference during the tutorial.
Step 1: Setting up the disappearing 9 patch
Step 1: Choose 9 pieces of fabric and press all fabric before starting to have accurate cuts.
Step 2: Using 9 different prices of material, cut 27 4" x 4" square patches.
Step 3: Using the 27 pieces, arrange three 9 patches. For this size of case, we chose one fabric to be the center of each of the three 9 patches, and 8 random patterns to complete the rest of the 9 patch.
Step 4: Sew the 9 patch squares together.
Step 5: Press all seams flat on both sides to flatten the 9 patch for more accurate sewing and cutting later.
Step 6: Cut excess threads. (Do not pull threads!)
Step 7: Disappearing 9 patch technique - Cut each 9 patch horizontal and vertical in the middle evenly.
Step 2: Putting it together
Step 9: Press seams flat again.
Step 10: Measure 12 1/2" from bottom to top on both pieces and cut off excess. (We did not cut anything off the sides)
Step 11: Cut 2 pieces of thin batting the same size as each of your 2 pieces from the 9 patch.
Step 12: Pin material to batting and then use a decorative stitch to follow the main seams.
