Because I'm too poor for an iphone, I decided to make a felt phone case that would fit an iphone and also resemble one... until I  can save up for the real deal!




Felt iPhone (case) Tutorial

You Will Need:

Felt in the following colours:
Black (adhesive back)       Green
White (adhesive back)      Blue
Grey            Pink   
Red            Purple
Yellow            Orange

Hot Glue Gun

Scissors

Needle and thread in black and white

Instructions:

On black adhesive backed felt, measure two rectangles 11.7 cm x 2.6 cm. Cut out and set aside.



Repeat this step with grey felt. Peel the adhesive backing off the black felt and firmly stick to one side of both pieces of grey felt. Trim any excess.




Cut small felt squares for the "applications", and arrange as below one one of the black/grey rectangles (black side):


You will also need a circle for the button at the bottom of the phone, which for some reason wasn't in this photo.

Begin detailing the squares. Attach them individually to the rectangle, stitching the corners.



Detail:
Top left hand corner: Stitch "SMS" into the speech bubble
Top middle: Stitch a day of the week and a number of the month
Middle left: Stitch a bar graph (in white)
Middle centre: Stitch the hands and face of a clock
Bottom centre: Stitch a music note symbol surrounded by a circle
Bottom right corner: Stitch the symbols of a calculator

On the bottom bar stitch detail on the envelope, and a circle around the navigation symbol.

Your "phone" should now feature the following on its menu:
SMS, Calender, Photos, Stocks, Clock, YouTube, Settings, iTunes, Calculator, Phone, Mail, Safari, iPod.

Because of the stitch detail, the back of your rectangle will look very messy. Cut one more grey rectangle and stick it to the messy side.



Blanket stitch the top side of your front and the grey rectangle you just cut so that they hold together. You do not need to stitch the entire way around because you are about to that with the other side joined.

Hold the two rectangles together, and blanket stitch every side but the top, which will need to be left open so that you can slide your (non-existant) iPhone inside.



As a finishing touch, add an Apple symbol to the back side of your case



Completed case:

You can use this for any phone that will fit comfortably, as a funny way of letting people know you are poor like me.
So there you go! A felt iPhone case not necessarily for an iPhone that looks like an iPhone for when you can't afford a real iPhone! iPhone. Enjoy Smiley

am i the only one in the world who DOESN'T want an iphone?  i used to have a smartphone (i think it was a nokia e61?) that i rather liked but i found i wasn't using all the fancy tings it could do... so finally i "upgraded" for a 1/3 the weight not-so-smart phone that only does the three things i do:  text/type, call, and the occasional photo.  it's great!

but anyway, i DO want your case, now THAT's cool.  for me, the case is cooler than an iphone itself.
