this week I’m going to show you how to make this cute DIY phone case from felt.
What you’ll need:
- an other piece of fabric
- an ribbon
- needle and thread
- a press stud or velcro
Step 1: Cut two pieces of fabric the length of your phone and the width of twice your phone+a few centimetres extra. Also cut two pieces of cardboard with the outline of your phone like this:
Step 2: Cut a thin strip of felt and sew it to the other piece of felt:
Step 3: Sew your other fabric to the opposite side of the felt
Step 4: Take a wide strip of felt and sew it to the other side of your original felt piece
Step 5: Fold over your green fabric and fold the wide strip over it and pin it up.
Step 6: Insert your cardboard pieces and sew alongside the edges of the cardboard to make sure it stays in place. Before sewing down the strip, however, inset you phone and sew around it to make sure it will fit later on.
Step 7: Cut off the left side of your wide strip, and sew down around the cardboard on this side too.
Step 8: Cut off all the loose strings and fabric edges.
Step 9: Use your ribbon and cut off a piece. Fold it double and sew it shut and attach it to the back of the case. Then, add the press stud or velcro in a way that it will be able to shut. If you have neither, you can also use a button for this.
And you’re done! I think it looks really cute and the technique with the strips gives the case an unique look.
