Phone cases

I have been given some lovely fabric by friends who visited Africa recently.  The fabric they brought would have cost at least four times the price here, and it is lovely to have fabrics reflecting the charity I am supporting with my creations.  So I wanted to use the fabric as a feature rather than "just" as a lining.  They are not huge pieces - fat quarter size or less.  Here are my first set of creations using some of the fabrics.
These simple phone cases have a pocket at the front with a false binding - made by cutting the lining longer than the main fabric and pressing in place.  I was low on these and several people at recent sales have been interested, so it was time to replace them.  From the top and working in rows, cases 2, 4, 6, 7 and 8 all use African fabrics.
