DIY Denim Phone Case

I don’t know about you guys but I beat my poor phone up – it spends most of its time in my somewhat large bag, along with many other things that knock around with it, and I’ve seen enough cracked phone screens to know that I need a more protective case for it. I have a bag of scrap fabrics that are left over from past projects and old clothing, and from it I chose some pieces of denim to make a little case for my phone. It was so easy, I ended up making two! Next up, iPad!

What you need: a piece of fabric large enough to fold over your phone with room to spare, needle and thread, and any other embellishments you feel like using.

I folded the denim over my phone, with the reverse side facing outwards, and left about an inch of room on each side.

I left the phone where it was, and used that as my guide to sew around the phone on three sides, leaving the top edge open.

Once you’re finished sewing, turn the phone inside out! I trimmed some extra fabric off the top and then decided to add some pretty trim.

These little feathers were the finishing touch!

For the second one I used some pockets that I had cut off an old pair of jeans. All I did was sew them together, and it works perfectly!

So easy, and my phone is much more comfortable now :) I love the idea of making a patchwork one… maybe that’ll be next!
