Trying out something new!
I have an iPhone 3GS and a price for a good, quality cover for it starts from €25… In the time of a recession even owning an iphone is too expensive, never mind paying an extra €25 for a cover itself… So I made one myself from a leftover fabric! Way better that a bought one :)
Created this pattern myself. Using the measurements of the phone, first I cut outside of the cover. Then I glued adhesive fabric on the wrong-side of the material to make it more harder and easier to embroider the fabric. Sewed on some ornaments.. Separately I made an inside of the cover – put together lining with polyester material and sewed together using embroidery style. Sewed some pockets over it and sewed together with the outside of the cover.
The same style I did for kindle covers. Just holders and pockets are different style and sizes… Turned out to be better that expected – very solid and strong and safe covers.
You should try it yourself – a perfect project to practice your skills on!
