I love this! I was wondering if you could use a magnetic closure like they use in purses I'm sure you couldget small ones. Or would the magnet part interfere with the blackberry?

I've been using the purple one for my iPod touch and it's too wide, so I'm sure it would fit an iPhone Smiley

I don't know if an magnet would interfere, probably not, but I don't want to take that chance.  I wish I could though, I've been saving clasps from old purses and would love to use one, they are my favorite closure!

I've recently purchased fusible fleece from Walmart (because that is all they have now Sad so that is what the next one will be made with.  I've never used it before, so I hope it works out!

Thanks for the comments!

fusible fleece is good. I recommend trimming it out of the seam allowances so they don't get too thick. Another idea for a closure could be elastic that you sew along the length and tuck the flap into it to close.

Hmmm, good idea, I might have to try that, thanks!

i love this!  I have one that is store bought that looks almost exactly like what you made.  I love it!  I hate using purses, so it is my daily carrier.
Mine has magnets that close it... they are thin and built into the fabric.  I have a touchscreen phone (samsung instinct) and I dont think i have had problems with the magnets.

I've been wanting to make a holder for my blackberry too, this one is very cute. I think i'm going to try it! I might use a hook and eye, like for a skirt or a pair of pants,  instead of a snap.

Ok, I got the "final" phone case done, and I took photos of the process.  I'm going to need a couple of days to type of a tutorial however.  I'll likely put it in a new post, but I'll add a link here to it.  Hopefully by the end of this week! Smiley

You did a great job on both cases. Another closure idea is to use elastic (skinny hair bands) sewn in the top flap & sew a button on the front. You just pull the elastic over the button.

I use fusible fleece all the time on my bags/purses.  It helps with sturdiness and cushion so it sounds like it would be a good idea for this project.  Personally, I don't cut from the seam allowance.  My normal, Walmart sewing machine has never had trouble getting through it all.  I always thought it just makes the bag that much more sturdy.  I DO trim the seam allowance for the Pellon Peltex!  That stuff's killer!

Looking forward to the tutorial Smiley I've written a few and they are hard work and time consuming! Good luck!!
