A bit of free time, a minimum of materials and a maximum of imagination - and in your hands - a beautiful, neat product, which you will enjoy with joy.
To make a felt case for your phone with your own hands, you will need:
two colors of felt, in our case pink andwhite; hot melt glue; glue "Moment Crystal"; scissors; stationery knife; pink floss or any other thread; needle; semi-beads "under the pearl"; pencil; small; paper.
Felt phone case: job description
We measure our phone and calculate the sizefelt strips that will serve as the basis for the manufacture of a felt cover. To do this, we add 2-3 centimeters to the width of the phone for free use, and multiply its length by 2 and add the same 3 centimeters. For example, your phone has a size of 6x10 cm. Hence, the dimensions of the inner white band will be: 6 plus 2-3 cm = 8-9 cm (width of the strip) 10x2 + 3 = 23 cm (length of the strip). The width of the pink strip is half a centimeter more than the white one; the length of the rose is 1 cm longer than that of the white. Those. under our hypothetical calculation, you need to cut 2 stripes: white with dimensions of 8x23 cm and pink with dimensions of 8.5x24 cm. Pink felt is the outer part, and white felt is the inner part. Determine where the front side will bepink felt. We make a distance from the edge of 3 cm and make a slot with a stationery knife. In total there will be 6 cuts with an interval of 1 cm. They must be of such a size that a thread of felt can freely pass through them. Cut off a strip of white felt with a length of up to 20 cm and 3 mm in width. We start very carefully thread through the holes from the back of the thread from the felt. The ends should be hidden on the inside, and the thread itself should be fixed in the middle. On the reverse side, we fix the ends with Moment glue. Front, first tying a simple knot. Then we tie a bow. We glue its ends and loops with glue to the base. In the middle of the insert bead. Now glue the inner and outer part of the cover. We apply a point “Moment” glue on the seamy side of pink felt, and first we put white felt on exactly one edge only to the middle. Since the width of the white felt is less than pink, we put it so that the indentations on both sides are the same. Next, fold in half the workpiece and glue the remaining half of the white felt to the pink. The upper edges of both bands need to be combined. We make rounded corners in the upper part of the phone case. Decorative felt seams look very nice on felt. We fasten the edges of the cover loop stitch. We start at one end at the bend, moving to the other. Hiding knot inside between layers. If you sew with floss threads, then it is better to join four at once and cut off so many threads to cover the entire perimeter of the case. Stitching the looped seam, we hide the white layer of felt inside. When we reach the place where the corner begins, we sew, without interruption, only the first layer of two colors. Having reached the place where the second rounded corner ends, we begin to sew together all the layers again. The remaining part of the firmware is sewn separately. We hide the knot also inside. We got such a case for a phone from felt. You can decorate it with a heart. Let's make templates of hearts from paper and we will cut them out of felt. Sticking two hearts of different sizes on each other using hot melt glue. Additionally we decorate with semi-beads. As you can see, making a felt phone case with your own hands is absolutely simple!
