Very simple phone cases

This was my first phone case design.  Even with the novelty ones on my stall, these sell well.  They are made from just six pieces of fabric and I make a variety of sizes.  For the largest ones I cut two rectangles in main fabric which are 6" x 4" and the same in lining, and one square 4" in main with the lining 4"x5" for the front pocket.
Sew all main fabrics to matching lining pieces along one short edge.  The 4" square is sewn to the 4" x 5" lining. Press the pocket pieces wrong sides together so that the bottom edges are level.  Pin this piece with the contrast top showing to one of the main pieces with bottom edges (the unsewn ones) together.
Put the two body pieces right sides together (with the pocket piece between them) and sew round three sides, starting on one long side of the lining.  Leave the bottom edge of the lining unsewn and turn through this.
Turn the edges of the lining in and either hand or machine stitch along them then push the lining inside the case.

For the medium cases I use body sections 5.5" x 3.5" and the smallest size I make 5" x 3".
