diy simple iphone case with card/cash slot

Yesterday we made a quick and easy “I’m on vacation and I’ve got diy withdrawals” felt pouch. Now it’s time for part two, the “I’m on vacation and I’ve got diy withdrawals” simple iPhone case with an additional card/cash slot – supah easy, cheap, colorful, and made with only a few materials.

What You’ll Need:

the other half of the felt used yesterday a.k.a. two pieces of felt
(note: I got one stiff piece and one regular)
embroidery thread and needle
scissors

The outer, stiff piece of felt measures 9 3/4″ x 4 1/2″
inner (brown) felt is 8 3/4″ x 3 1/4″

Have fun decorating the outer pink felt – I added a simple flower.
Cut another piece of outer felt 3 1/2″ square
(I had to piece-meal mine, thus the center and top yellow stitch)

Place the 3 1/2″ piece approximately 1/2 – 3/4″ from the top edge and, using the embroidery thread, stitch along the bottom edge.

Center the inside piece of felt.
(you will want to stitch the inner felt and outer felt across each end. this is where a machine would be handy but in the absence, use your embroidery thread or stick glue)

Fold the felt over the phone and clip the sides together.
(I had no clips and that works, too. it’s just a little more difficult to grasp while sewing)
Using a blanket stitch, go through all layers to secure the sides and guess what?

Now you’ve got a matching set. I’m using the pouch to hold my thread and needles.
