I made my own cellphone case months ago. Back then, I wanted something “ruggedly beautiful” but this time, I wanted something a bit more colorful. I bought a yard and a half of yellow and blue felt from Carolina’s last week for P180/yard. I was going to use it for an accent pillow but I couldn’t wait to try it on something smaller first. I had lost my cellphone case anyway.
So here goes the tutorial now…
First, cut your felt according to your phone’s size. I did this by placing my phone on top of the folded felt, cutting around it leaving at least half an inch allowance. I folded it from the bottom so the two sides had to be stitched (blanket-stitch).
After sewing the case, cut six (6) pieces of strips about an inch in height then make the fringes like the above photo.
Arrange your fringes first before gluing them, marking their position on the case. I used Bostik Sew No More on the first bottom two fringes but unfortunately I ran out of it so I had to sew the rest. If you don’t have fabric glue available, you can sew the fringes too using just a running stitch but you have to do it before you sew the sides.
And here is the finish product! My final stitches are crooked. Haha! You can do this with throw pillows too using color combination of your choice. Isn’t it quick and easy? It’s also a perfect hand-made gift.
