New Phone Equals New Case

I really didn’t need one.  But trying to text on that tiny keyboard was getting to be a real pain.  A touch pad would be so much easier to use.  And I didn’t want to spend any more than what my son paid for his.  After I got it home and started playing with it, I discovered that I can talk text.  What more do I want?  Wait a minute!  Well, I’ll be.  I can talk text, too.  Hot damn!  All right.  I’ll quit acting like an idiot.

They wanted to sell me a case.  I said, I’ll make one.  I got a very sceptical look.  What if you drop it.  It will be well padded.  The idea that anyone could make something useful was totally beyond them. 

I got out the Stiff Stuff.  I love/hate this stuff.  I hate working with it.  I love that it does what the name implies.

I traced around the phone twice.  Then managed to cut them out without too much swearing.

Cutting the interfacing took some time.

The wide piece is a pouch for the earphones.  It has to have a little pleat.  The long one includes the flap.  The third is the front.  Each piece is about 1/4 inch wider and longer than the phone.

Picking fabric was easy.  I got some leftover Rowan fabric.

I ironed the interfacing onto the wrong side of the desired fabric leaving enough space for seams.

And that’s as far as I’ve gotten today.  Sweetums is getting hungry.
