8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / iPhone case on: March 11, 2011 06:20:32 AM
So recently I got a new iPhone.  I promptly ordered a cute protective case but knew I wanted something else that could easily swap between my purses.  I change all the time depending on whether or not I'm taking a project along with me.  I bought some fat quarters and went to town.  

I really loved the way it turned out so I thought I'd post it here.  I looked for different patterns online but I couldn't find anything that was exactly what I had in my head so I sat down to try to wing it.  

**Because I'm new to Craftster I'm not allowed to post photos yet.  I uploaded them to my gallery here and the links are at the bottom

The down and dirty:
I basically measured the length and width of the phone and left a little wiggle room for the case I didn't have yet.  I took said measurements and transcribed them to a length of fabric.  I ended up with a rectangle about 16 x 5.5".  I took the very thinnest batting I could find (just to give a little protective softness) and used a decorative stitch on my sewing machine and made straight lines down the length.  I made one decorative stitch row crosswise to mark off the flap.  Basically after that I went wrong sides together with the liner all around leaving a few inches to turn and adding a little hanger off the side.  Flipped it right sides out.  Folded up the section to make the phone pouch, and went round the edge with a top stitch adding a crocheted loop at the top that I had left open for the turn.  

For the crochet loop I just did about 16 chain stitches and then went back down the chain in slip stitch.  It gives me a closure around the button that is flexible enough to get off it quickly.  I didn't want a traditional buttonhole because it would be too difficult to get the phone out.  I didn't want Velcro because it's loud.  When I saw some adorable swirly flower buttons I had laying around for an apron project that hasn't happened yet, I knew that's what i needed to do.  

Hope you all enjoy
