I have a serious problem. I never ever ever can find my phone. If I can go the entire day without looking for my phone it’s a good day. And actually I don’t know where my phone is more days then where I know it is. And yes they have that app where it will locate your phone but it’s just so much easier not to lost it in the first place, right? I tell people (ok lets be honest my sisters are the ones who call me so I told them) that I can never find it cause I am always walking around the house in yoga pants and a t-shirt and have no pockets to hold my phone in. Insert, the iphone pouch necklace…..
This was one of those projects that I wasn’t sure would work out, but I desperately needed something like this so I attempted it and quite frankly, I’m in love!
So how I made it was I took some white fabric I had traced out a piece of fabric that was twice as long as the iphone and then some for some seam allowance. (say hello to me in the phone!)
Then I took some painters tape and made my triangles making sure to press the tape down as flat as I could so the paint wouldn’t bleed.
Then I sponged on some paint and let it dry! When you are painting it be sure to just touch the fabric rather than sweep it, again avoiding bleeding.
The next part I cheated. I used a lifeline known as “my sister Janae will sew it for me.” I cannot sew for the life of me! But she simply sewed a hem at the top and then sewed up the sides! Then Janae also so graciously let me use a chain off of an old necklace that she had and I glued it into the sides on the inside and then hand stitched one of the links to make sure it would stay.
Done! Now I have NO excuse not to have my phone on me anymore. And I love love love this thing. It’s been a week and I have not lost my phone once, that’s kind of a miracle in my life. My sisters are thrilled they can get a hold of me!
