  • How to stitch an felted pouch. Easy Felt Phone Case - Step 1
    Step 1

    Find an old woollen jumper. This one came from a charity shop (thrift store). Shrink it in a hot wash and you have made your own felt!

    You can then use it for all sorts of projects (I made mittens out of this one as well as the phone case).

    Turn the felt inside out and sew the non-ribbed end together. I used blanket stitch. Turn it back out again so you have a neatly sewn bottom to your case.
