Fun with Felt - iPhone Case

I love my iPhone.  I don't really know how I lived without it.  I use it for everything!  I decided iPhones needed something pretty as a thank you for being so wonderful.  So, of course I had to make a felt iPhone case!  :-) 

I just cut a little flower and leaves out of felt.  I added a cute little button for the center of the flower!  Then I just stitched the flower on with a regular stitch and the leaves with a blanket stitch.  I used a back stitch to sew the stem.  I sewed the whole thing together with a blanket stitch.  I used two layers of felt so make it thicker and to protect the iPhone better.  The inside of this one is white. 

This case is big enough to hold an iPhone with a cover on it (since most people have some sort of cover on their phones).  I made a pattern for a smaller version that holds a phone without a cover on it, too.

Before I made this case I made a practice case with cheaper felt to try out the size. It was a little too short so I made some adjustments before I made the final pattern. It was fun figuring out the pattern by myself.

This iPhone case has already been sold!  I'm so shocked that someone wanted to buy something I made!  My mom bought this one to give her friend for her birthday.  She said she really liked it!  :-)  My mom ordered another one to give as a gift next month, too.  I'm so excited!  I think I'll make these for when I try to participate in craft fairs next year.  They are easy to make, useful and super cute!  I may try to make some cases for other phones, too.

Now I just have to decide what I want the next one to look like.  Guess I should get back to work!  ;-)
