This is a mobile phone case which I have already made in several sizes. I make items by recycling denim - see the About Me section for an explanation of why. I've made mobile phone cases before, and they sell well. I saw lots of bags, purses and cushions made by others using owls, and thought it would be a good design for a phone case as well. These were quick to make - I made them in batches of 6 at a time.
I put the main fabric and the lining fabric right sides together and joined them along the short edge, but with the pieces for the front of the phone case I put a loop of cord elastic between the two pieces. Sew carefully over this - my machine didn't appreciate the jump in thickness! Open out both pieces and iron flat.
Put the two pieces of fabric right sides together, with the main fabric pieces together and the lining pieces together. Start at the long end of one of the lining pieces and sew all the way round one long side (both fabrics), the short side of the main fabric and the other long side.
Use the open short side of the lining to turn your phone case the right way in. Then either hand stitch the short side of the lining together (if you want a perfect finish) or sew it on the machine (if, like me, you are short of time and realise it will not be seen unless someone decides to turn it out!) Put the lining inside the main case, press again to make sure the top seams are flat, and voila, you have finished. Enjoy!
To make a case for a slightly smaller phone I used rectangles 3.5" x 5" and kept the wing, beak and eye pieces the same sizes.
