Cell Phone Pocket

This little pocket helps you bring your cell phone with you everywhere and still look cute! It also would work great for an Ipod.
It is a quick project! It took me about a half an hour to complete.

Here is what you will need:
Felt (in two colors)
Small square of Velcro
Pinking Sears
Embellishments (I used a button and embroidery thread)

1. Cut your pieces.
1 rectangle of main color (about an inch wider and longer than your cell phone or Ipod)
1 rectangle + strap of main color (the rectangle is the same size as the other one - the strap is 1.5 inches by 5 inches - it should be all one piece)
1 rectangle of coordinating color- about 1/2 inch wider and longer than your first rectangle.

My rectangles were:
Main color (Brown): 3" X 5"
coordinating color (Cream): 3.5" X 5.5"

2. Sew your Velcro to the TOP side of both the main color rectangle and strap

3. Embellish your front rectangle.

4. Sew the main rectangle to your coordinating rectangle ONLY across the TOP.
DO NOT sew all 4 sides!

5. Place your front rectangles (now sewn only in the top) onto your rectangle+strap with WRONG sides together. Sew on the two sides and the bottom attaching the pieces. Leave the top open for your pocket!

I sewed a button on my strap so that it would look like I had a button closer and not a Velcro closer... it is up to you if you want to add this step!

Place your phone in your new cute pocket

You can wear it through a belt loop...

...or on a purse strap!
