Why leave your charging phone on the counter when you can put it in a cute pocket like this?
This was one of my Making Day projects. The one I promised you a tutorial for... you know, three weeks ago (sorry about that).
Want to make one? Let's get started!
- Fabric (I used a print & a solid)
- Fusible interfacing (heavyish)
- Sewing machine or needle and thread
Step 1: Cut out a 12" x 6" rectangle from each of: outer fabric, lining fabric and interfacing.
Step 2: (not pictured) Fuse interfacing to the wrong side of one of the fabric pieces.
Step 3: Pin fabric right sides together & sew around the rectangle with a 1/4" seam allowance. Leave a few inches unsewn for a turning gap. Clip the corners.
Step 4: Turn piece right side out and press.
Step 5: Top stitch around piece to close gap and give everything a nice finished look.
Step 6: Fold up the bottom of the rectangle to create a pocket. I test fitted with my phone and eyeballed it. Sew on top of the topstitching along each side of the pocket.
Step 7: Another test fitting step. Place the plug for your charger at the top of the pocket...
...trace around it.
...use a tight zig zag stitch to sew around the square (or other shape) you just traced.
Ta-da! Plug in your phone then tuck it, and all the wiring, into your cute pocket.
