This little phone pouch was made from scraps of pvc, fleece and lining left over from other projects, and some lace that was a bit "scratchy" to use on wristcuffs or neckbands.
Makes a lovely gift for Xmas at hardly any cost.
THE SAVE IS NOT WORKING ON THE "YOU WILL NEED "SECTION SO:
you will need
Small pieces of PVC fabric, lining fabric, polyester fleece, half a yard gathered lace, thread, needle and/or sewing machine
First, sort through scraps of fabric, fleece etc. left over from other projects....I always have plenty, I don't like to throw anything away!
Make your pattern on cardboard by measuring your phone or i pod, adding half the depth, plus 1 cm, seam allowance + 1cm ease allowance.
Round off bottom corners and leave top corners square..mine worked out 10cm x 17cm
Now make another pattern piece the same width, but an extra third longer. Round off all four corners of this piece.
Cut out the two cardboard pattern shapes
Lay your pattern pieces on the reverse of the pvc fabric and mark all round with chalk.
Repeat the process using lining material
Using longest pattern piece, pin gathered lace all round as shown.
Then sew lace in position, either by hand or machine, about quarter inch in from the edge
Now place matching piece of lining on top, with lace snadwiched in between. Sew round three sides only. Leave one of short sides open for turning.
With right sides together, pin lining to smaller piece, and sew all round three sides, 1 cm in from edge, leaving srtaight short side open for turning.
You will now have two pieces like this
Clip out little v shaped notches at curved areas as shown.
Now take some polyester fleece ( wadding, quilting) cut to the same shape as the two pattern pieces. lay your sewn pieces on top. and attatch to fleece by sewing all round just outside the previously sewn seam with a small running stitch...I am not doing this by machine, as the fleece gets tangled up in the machine :(
Now turn your pieces right side out through the open ends.
Close the openings by folding over seam allowance to the inside, and stitching closed using ladder stitch
Lay smaller piece on top like this, with linings touching, and pvc fabric to the outside
Sew back and front of pouch together at edges as shown, using ladder stitch, or a small overcasting stitch
Sew on little piece of velcro as a fastening
Now when you close it, you can see some unsightly stitching....select some trims of your choice to cover this up...I used black and red ribbon bows and a ribbon rose
Sew in position to cover stitching
Thats it done!
Wrap up to make a delightful little Christmas gift ( if you can part with it.....)
