Tutorial: Iphone Wallet

remember my travel kit organizer thing here?  well, i was messing with mine a couple days ago when i realized it's almost the exact same size as my iphone.  and since i usually hate carrying around purses because i never have anything to put in there, i decided to make a little iphone wallet.  


you can basically follow the same tutorial with some minor changes.  first, instead of the pieces being 6" tall i made them 6 1/2".  this is basically to make sure that it's long enough for an iphone with a thin case.  

next, instead of putting the zipper compartment on the inside, i put it on the outside.  now you can use it for change, headphones, lip balm or whatever else.


for the interior, instead of using the 3 pieces like before, use one solid piece of your main fabric.  then make one giant center pocket for the phone (basically the same as before but don't sew the separate pockets).  and make pockets for your cards.  conveniently i still had extra pockets for hair bands and bobby pins.  

and now you have a cute little iphone wallet.  or just plain wallet if you prefer to use the bigger pocket for cash.  it's a pretty versatile pattern really.

the original travel organizers are for sale in my shop here and i will be posting these iphone wallets once i get a couple made.

  7. The case is very form fitting and provides secure feel when in the case. Front of the case folds back all the way very conveniently, this lets you talk and take pictures very comfortably.iphone 5 wallet
