  • How to make a phone holder. Cell Phone Case/Pouch - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your materials. You'll need fabric (I'm using suede because it's tougher), an art knife, pencil, ruler, a button, cutting board, and either a sewing machine or fabric glue.

    Making sure that your fabric has the bad side facing up, it's time to create the pouch. To create the opening, flip over the top edges and sew them in place (this will create a nice smooth edge). Then sew up the two side edges.

    On the front of your pouch, beneath the bow, make a little slit. I put a ruler into the inside of the pouch so I didn't accidentally cut through the back of the pouch.
