if you've seen my previous how tos or asked for a how to on my other projects, you probably know that not only do I dislike making how tos ..
I'm really bad at it too
so this is my very amateur how-to, anything that's worded badly or confusingly, forgive me and please ask questions >_<
*you can buy this plastic at fabric stores. it's not that expensive and you don't need a lot. if you ask for like 1/8 a yard, you can make billions of these cases, or use it for something else
PLEASE be really careful with the knife.
when I was making my chocolate one (first one), I was really careless and sliced my finger (there was a LOT of blood even though the wound wasn't deep), and later on the knife rolled off my desk and stabbed my leg, it was prolly around a 1/4 inch deep wound and my leg lost some feeling
I've been playing around with my knife for ~2 years and never had this happen, THEY TURN ON YOU SO KEEP CLOSE WATCH
this is not meant to scare you, but to make you more cautious
the iphone case has to be silicone rubber, unless you wanna saw through plastic or metal. the rubber's easy to cut through, and flexible. and silicone cases are lke $5 on ebay
I got my choco and winged cases for $5 TOTAL on ebay, so this project is cheapie deapie
start sewing. I used the link on the bottom for different sewing styles. for the chocolate, I used the blanket stitch, for the winged one, I used cross stitch (but only finished halfway :x)
I'm stinky at sewing, if anyone wants to know how to do one of the fancy stitches in the picture DO NOT ask me. I probably don't know how to do it and if I did know, this isn't a sewing for dummies tutorial

btw the pocket I used to stick coupons (I used the coupons a few hours before making the tut so hahahaa) and maybe some loose change in it. depending on how full your holder is, the change shouldn't fall out
and depending on how much wiggle space you give it, you probably can't fit THAT much in there, just the necessities
I have my metrocard, debit card, ID card, some cash, and still have extra space for another card
