This infinite abyss is my bag.
There are many perils in there, waiting to snatch the naivety of my sweet, innocent iPhone, Stevie. Yes, he has a name. As a new iPhone owner, I treat him like the precious baby he is. And so I had to keep him safe from the keys, the mace, the lipgloss, the almonds (?) and anything else that might end up there.
So to start. I folded a piece of fabric in half with the printed side on the inside (so it's inside-out). I pinned down a hem at the top. Using my phone as a guide, I placed pins down each side, leaving a teensy bit of wiggle room. Remember, it's always easier to sew in a little tighter than to rip out a seam to make it bigger.
Then I sewed a straight seam down each side.
I popped in Stevie (see him shining through?) to test my seams. I'm holding the case by the excess and he's not slipping out. Success!
Then I sewed down the hem piece at the top with a zig-zag stitch. I trimmed the excess and flipped it right-side out.
And that's it! A sleepy bag for Stevie to protect his screen while he swims in my bag. Now I don't have to worry about my keys getting his glass.
