How to Make a Cell Phone Case

This is such a simple idea, but I thought it might inspire someone!


I found these CUTE sunglass cases at the dollar store. {I know! For only $1!) The problem is.... my glasses are too big for the cases. So, they have been sitting around for a year.

All of my glasses are big. Too wide for these cases.


I DID just get a new cell phone (The LG Xenon) and needed a case. I threw the phone in one of these cases, but it was a pain to get out because it was too deep.

I have two of this one, so the picture on the left is the outside and the picture on the right is the inside. How cute is the inside, btw??? I could almost use it that way, but there is a pocket on the back of the rightside-out side.

So, anyway, I turned it inside out and measured my phone for depth.



Next, I zig-zag stitched across the bottom (backstitching to hold it on each end) and then I
did a straight stitch across the zig-zag just for extra strength.

Next, I cut below the stitching.

Turned it rightside out. And put my phone in it. PERFECT!!!
