First my son told me exactly how he wanted it to look and function. So we drew out a picture to make sure we were on the same page and discussed how we would go about making the openings, the flap, etc.
We centered the flap and sandwiched it in between the two squares with the raw edges aligned.
I stitched the seam with the flap inside. And then opened up the 2 squares of fabric, revealing the flap.
After that I marked where I needed to trim the bottom of the fabric squares to fit the ipod.
I made a template out of cardstock of where the openings would go. And used it to trace the cut outs onto the fabric.
For the circle, you can see that I cut a hole in the main fabric (2 layers) and then placed a donut shaped piece of fabric on top, right sides together. Then I stitched 1/4 inch from edge all the way around and clipped the seam. Then I pushed the fabric through the hole to the back and pressed.
Here it is! We are very pleased with the result!
