You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make

Step one

1 2

Place and pin the VELCRO® brand tape to the right sides of both fabrics 1.5cm down from the raw edge of the smaller sides (top) and equidistant from the raw side edges.

 

Step two 

2

Sew around the VELCRO® brand tape in a box shape, sewing as close to the edge of the VELCRO® brand tape as you can, but making sure you catch it all!

 

Step three

3

Sew the top edges together by placing the fabrics right sides together.

3 2

The fabric that will be on the outside of the bag (not the lining) to have the VELCRO® brand tape side to the top near this stitch line. The lining has its VELCRO® brand tape to the other end.

4 2

Sew a seam with a 0.5 seam allowance across this top raw edge.

 

Step four

Open up the seam so both fabrics are on opposite sides of each other.

4

With right sides together, fold up each fabric side 22cm to meet the seam leaving the overlay at the top (there is a flap overlay at the top and that’s correct!).

5

Pin down the side edges and sew up the sides with a small 0.5 seam allowance.

 

Step five

Sew up the top box now, again with right sides together and leaving a small gap 3 – 4 cm close to the original seam.

 

Step six

 6

Turn the whole piece through using the small gap and press it all nice and flat. Push the lining inside the outer fabric.

7

Press, press press!
Top Tip! Do not press over VELCRO® brand tape – using a pressing cloth or scrap of fabric if you need to do that!

 

Step seven

8

Take your key-ring and slide the ribbon through the small fastening hole to create a loop.

8 2

Slide the raw edges of the ribbon  loop into the hole you used to turn it through and sew it all up as neatly as you can! (Hand-stitch it if you are worried about your machine stitching here..)

9

VIOLA! you are done, now you can size this up or down to suit your phone and devices!
