Felt phone case

Today it is difficult to find a person who does not have a mobile phone. These little helpers have firmly entered our lives, and are not going to leave it anytime soon. In order for the phone to last a long time, it must be protected. At purchase to us offer in addition to get a cover for phone. But, for example, I never liked those works of design ideas that are presented in stores. I wanted something original, unlike the same type of products. And the exit was found! I started sewing felt covers. Several years ago decorative felt appeared on the market. This greatly expanded the capabilities of those who love to do something with their own hands. Moreover, thanks to the special properties of this fabric, even an inexperienced person can easily create an exclusive accessory. So, let's start. You will need colored felt, scissors, ruler, thread, needle, mobile phone. Choose several sheets of colored felt with a thickness of 1-1.5 mm. For a case to fit perfectly in size, measure the phone. It is necessary to take measurements of the length, width and height of the device. I obtained such data: length - 12cm, width - 6cm, height - 0.5cm.

Record the measurements, they will come in handy later. Now you need to decide on the appliqué on the product. As material, felt is good that it is not showered. You can work with him as with paper. Scissor and sew or glue to the surface. Using this property, you can easily embody any of your drawing in felt. However, for starters, I recommend practicing simple applications. I chose the hearts. It is necessary to cut 3 hearts of different sizes from a felt of bright colors. First you need to make a pattern on paper and attach it to the felt.

Then cut the hearts out of the felt. Scissors should be sharp enough.

Now from the red felt we cut out two identical rectangles.The sizes of the rectangles are equal to the size of the phone plus half a centimeter on each side for the seams. That is, in my case, one rectangle has dimensions 13cm * 7cm. Do not forget about the height of the phone, it will also take over a piece of fabric. But do not add too much material to the seams. Otherwise, the phone will not be held in the case.

Now let's start sewing hearts on the cover. We will sew with contrasting threads so that the seam can be seen. In this case, it will be noticeable that this is manual work. Of course, you can take the thread to match, but the effect will be completely different. In general, you choose, because it is the creation of your hands. I took the orange thread, contrasting with the color of the cover, but matching the color of one of the hearts.
