I was already sick of the machine from my sister's blanket and looking forward to a break, but here we are - I can't wait to give them to everyone tomorrow!
I wish I could give a detailed tutorial, but I forgot to take pictures.
- Two of the cases are made from cutting pieces of identical length and width and sewing them together. I'm not very precise and just measured by laying my phone on the fabric and flipping it side by side three times. You want the fabric to be as long as three phones, with a little extra on all the edges so as to fold and sew and get crisp edges that won't be able to fray. I ironed down a very small piece so the edge would be a fold. I'm not very good at measuring - I don't have the patience. I would estimate it was about a quarter-inch. Then with the folds in, I sewed along one of the shorter edges (the width of the fabric), which would be the edge of the pocket. I then folded the fabric so as to create the pocket and sewed the three sides.
- The other two were made from one piece of fabric. Instead of having two pieces, I just had one piece the length of flipping my phone down it six times. I then folded it in half, and tucked in the cut edges for crisp sides and no fraying. You don't have to sew the edge of the pocket in this step because it's a fold. So then you fold the folded edge of the width up to create a pocket and sew the three outer edges. In both cases, the bottom of the pocket is a fold, and isn't sewn.
- I bought clasps at Jo-Ann's and sewed them on by hand. Voila! A little protection and cute and easy way to find your phone fast in a bag full of too many things.
