Templates: Cut out with a 1 cm (3/8) seam allowance on all sides: 1X A on fold from jacquard, 1x B on fold from lining fabric, 1x C from leather without seam allowance.
Fold lining fabric B rights sides together and sew up both side seams (the opening for turning inside out is on one side). Press the seam allowances apart.
Glue both sides of leather strips C to the centre and topstitch close to the edges. Trim 2 strips to approx. 3.6 cm (1 1/2 in), thread D-rings through, topstitch close to the edge.
Stitch the side seams of A right sides together, include the loops with the D-rings at the notch (leave opening for snap lock at centre).
Push lining case B into case A right sides together and stitch 1 cm (3/8 in) from the upper edge. Press the seam allowance towards the lining.
Turn the right side out through the lining opening and then sew the opening shut by hand.
Press the lining to the inside at the notch (4.5 cm (1 7/8 in)) and then stitch 2 cm (3/4 in) from the edge all around to create the casing for the snap lock.
Thread in the snap lock, adjust the chain to the required length and attach to the D-rings.
The chain makes this fashionable little phone holder almost like a piece of jewelry!
