He Made, She Made: Hand-Sewn Cell Phone Holder

When I heard we had to make cell phone cases, it totally reminded me of a eyeglass case I sewed in 7th grade for one of my three sewing class project. I still remember my teacher shouting, "Slow it down, Courtney, get your foot off the pedal!" Even then, I loved to floor it! My glass case was a calico print with yellow piping and a foldover flap. It was really smart, if memory serves. I modeled my cell phone case from that -- so your phone is nice and cozy and safely tucked away.

You'll need:

  • Felt
  • Pieces of fabric, in print or solid colors
  • Needle and thread (or a sewing machine, if you have one)
  • Ribbon
  • Rick rack
  • Fabric glue
Instructions:

1. Cut two pieces of fabric and two pieces of felt so that each piece is just larger than your phone.

2. Sew a piece of felt to each piece of fabric so that your phone is safely cushioned.

3. Sew the outer edges of the fabric pieces together, leaving a place on top to slide your phone in. If you want to get fancy, you can make fabric/felt piece longer than the other, allowing you to create a foldover flap for your phone.

4. Add rick rack and trim to the case as you like. If you are making a foldover flap, you can use a piece of rick rack, tacked down at each end, to form a slot to slide the fabric flap into.

5. If you like, make a tiny pocket on one side of your phone case that's big enough to slide a library card, a note, or other tiny necessity into.

6. If you like, sew a piece of ribbon, cord, or even a long shoelace to either side of the case to form a strap.
