I have several small bags that I simply love. They all have the same drawback – they are not big enough for my new phone. My husband convinced me that I NEEDED the iPhone 6 (the screen on my old phone was cracked and the phone had stopped ringing). So after much cajoling I caved and bought one. I actually really like it – I can read everything I want on it (my old eyes were having trouble with the smaller screen). The only drawback was that it no longer fit into my bags. I don’t like to carry big ones, I like the small over the shoulder ones. What to do…? Hmm… Make my own!
I picked some fun, colorful yarn and started right away! I took some measurements of my phone and got started. Each row is single crochet and I really like the tight fabric this stitch creates. I don’t remember how many I chained to begin with.
I crocheted until the piece was long enough to be folded in half and still hold my phone (and my checkbook). Then I measured some cute, cotton fabric for a lining.
The lining edges are turned under and hand sewn in place.
All my bags need a zipper – I just feel safer that way.
Before I put the whole thing together, I added some little pockets for credit cards and cash. They work perfectly I might add!
This model is much cuter than me! But you can see that it is the perfect length and it holds everything I need on a daily basis.
I have used it everyday since it was completed and I anticipate many years of use! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
