I have plenty of other things that are more important than getting bothered by phone cords. I have no idea why, but an empty phone cord dangling from the wall or a plugged-in cord with a phone at the end sitting on the coffee pot doesn’t sit well with me. It encroaches upon my sanity.
I saw this picture on Pinterest and knew I was going to make it soon. Today, I clicked on my pin to get the instructions, and found no instructions. Just a photo. rather than spend forever trying to track down a tutorial (if one indeed exists) I wrote one.
I did the whole thing (including writing the pattern) at nap time. You can do it too. It’s a fast and super easy project. I made this for an I-Phone, but you could use it for any phone smaller without adjusting anything.
Or, if you phone is larger just change the dimensions, leaving and extra inch around the edges for seam allowance and phone width room.
For the pocket:
2- 15cm x 15cm pieces of fabric (I used quilter’s cotton)
1- 15cm x 15cm piece of heat-bond interfacing (medium or heavy)
2- 23cm x 13cm pieces of fabric (cotton)
1 23cm x 13cm piece of heat-bond
Thread to match (or contrasting if you like that look)
1. Make pattern pieces.
This is the pocket piece. I wrote the size in cm and inches. Please ignore my scribble :)
Here’s the body piece…
To make outlet markings:
Put one dot 3cm from the top and 5.5 cm for the top. (place the dots on the center point in this case 6.5 cm since it’s 13 cm across)
4. Place the two body and pocket pieces RIGHT sides together. Mark a spot for an opening. You will use this opening to turn your project right side out later.
