gadget case tutorial...

sometimes... a little idea just pops into your head and won't go away....these little guys were on my mind when I woke up yesterday... so here they are :) first they were just little animals but I decided to give them a purpose so now they hold my phone and camera... if you fancy making's a little how to :)

you will need
fabrics (remants)
scissors..pins..sewing machine


 A- measure your gadget and then add 3cm all the way around, cut out two pieces of outer fabric in this size
also cut two pieces of wadding and two pieces of lining fabric in the same size
cut out four ear shapes and cut any trim you wish to use to size

B - (if you want to do a contrast fabric on the front, cut out a smaller fabric piece and sew on) attach any trim now. Then place a piece of wadding on top of each outer fabric (wrong side) then place the right sides  together pin and sew around the sides and bottom with 1cm seam (leave top open)

C - Trim the seams and turn the case right way out. Sew up the ear pieces and sew the lining together with a 1cm seam, leave this inside out and place inside the case... press a 1cm seam over all the way around the open edge of the lining and the ears in place and (tricky bit as its quite small) sew around the top

D - add could use stitching...buttons or felt or fabric pens


you could miss off the face and ears and just use pretty fabrics for a more grown up could make bigger ones for tablets and kindles... you could leave out the wadding and just line in fleece or felt

I think they could make cute Easter gifts or Mums day presents :)
