So, how I created the pattern was to trace the outside of the phone. I added 3/4" to all sides of my tracing. To the top of this tracing, I traced 3/4 length of the phone which will become the fold over flap. So in actuality, the length of my pattern is 1 and 3/4" lengths of my phone and the width is increased by 3/4" on all sides. Hope that makes sense. One addition thing I decided at the last minute was to make the flap area 1/4" smaller on sides. This will make it easier to tuck under the strap. You can see that on the photo below. Then I created one more patten just the size of my phone plus 3/4" on all sides. This will be the front of the pouch. So I ended up with two pattern pieces. One long one that included the fold over flap area and one piece for the front of the pouch.,
I cut a piece of batting, a front fabric, and a lining fabric for each pattern piece. I place the batting on the bottom and then placed the fabrics right sides together on top of the batting. I sewed a 1/4" seam all around the 3 sides of the fabrics/batting and left the bottom open. I also made a quick band of fabric from a tri-folded piece of fabric. I sewed the edges to secure the strip. You'll see it in a later photo what the finished strip looks like.
I turned the sewn pieces right sides out. This caused the batting to be sandwiched between the fabric with right sides out. Now I simply layered the long piece with outer fabric face up. I place the strap piece about 1/2 way down on the piece. Then I top it with the smaller square unit with the outer fabric face down. In this case, the red is my outer fabric and the black is my liner.
I love it! It's just what I was looking for in a quick cover. Otherwise, the phone will be on my desk or person. I'm sure I won't be able to pull the phone out of the pouch quick enough to answer the call but it's more to transport the phone safely. I also may just create another one and add a strap to the back to be able to carry it by itself in the case when I am on break. If I do that, I might also add a snap to the closure. If you need any help creating your own pattern, let me know!Thanks for stopping by!
