Sometimes we just don’t want to carry a purse to run a quick errand, but we need the cell phone, just in case. I made a black denim cell phone pouch from jeans I cut into shorts. Hey, recycling is good.
I used flowers from the Pazzles Craft Room Library. I also, found the elephant in the Single Stroke Designs category. In order to get the elephant to cut like I wanted it to, I increased the lines to 0.04 and used WYSIWYG. The single stroke designs are for the Pen Tool, but using WYSIWYG enables me to make it into a cutting file.
The cell phone pouch itself was cut at 8” x 5 ½” with a ½” seam allowance. I cut two pieces of fabric for the strap. Each strap measures 3” x 20”. I sewed the two pieces together at the short ends, folded each long side to the middle and sewed the outside edges with white thread.
The designs are cut from Siser Easy Weed Heat Transfer Vinyl (iron-on vinyl). I then used my home iron instead of my heat press to press the designs onto the front of the pouch because it was quicker for this small design. You can get Pazzles iron-on vinyl here.
I used the iridescent 4mm Glam Rock Rhinestones, made by Imaginisce, to decorate the cell pouch a little more.
Since I edited the elephant by using WYSIWYG, I have provided the file I used.A Craft Room Membership is required to access additional content. Please Join Now or Login!
