Follow our instructions below to create your own unique cell phone cover. Go to page 1 for a list of supplies.

fuse fleece to lining 1. Following the directions on your fusible fleece, fuse the fleece to the wrong side of the lining.

zig-zag finish 2. Zig-zag around the perimeter of your fused piece to ensure a strong hold.

cell phone case closure 3. Cut a 5" piece of elastic or cord (for closure loop)

stitch cell phone case closure 4. Create a loop out of the closure strip of elastic or cord. Stitch it into place as shown on the right (I stitched so that the cord started 2" from the left edge). The ends of the closure should align with the top edge of the lining piece (or extend just a bit beyond the lining's edge). Stitch back and forth a few times to ensure a strong hold.

cell phone case fabric layers 5. Place your lining piece right side up. Place the outer fabric right side down over the fused piece. Stitch across top and down both sides, using a 1/4" seam allowance. Leave the bottom edge open.

trim corners of cell phone case fabric layers 6. Trim the two upper corners on the diagonal. This will make turning the piece right side out easier.

turn piece right side out 7. Turn the piece right side out (bottom edge has been left open for turning). I use the blunt end of a crochet hook to help push out the corners. You can also use a turning tool.

serge seam allowance edge 8. Serge or zig-zag stitch across the bottom, open edge. The stitching should not be wider than 1/4". This will finish off the seam allowance.

stitched cell phone case 9. Fold in half, lengthwise (fold the left side under so that the legthwise fold is on the left). Stitch down the right side, very close to the edge (1/8"). Start the stitch line approximately 1/4" from the top and continue down all the way to the bottom edge. Stitch across the bottom, 1/4" from the edge (stitch inside the zig-zag or serge line so it doesn't show when the finished cell phone case is turned right side out).

turn cell phone case right side out 10. Turn the cell phone case right side out. Use a turning tool or blunt end of a crochet hook or similar object to help push the corners out. The photo on the right show a partially turned case; The lining side is not fully pushed down to the inside.

stitch button to cell phone case 11. Stitch the button to the front of the cell phone case.
