Sew a cover for your cell phone, compact camera, hand-held gaming device or most any item that is of an appropriate size! So versatile, and you can make a case for any small gadget to make it stylish and protected with a fully padded cover.
This is a great pattern for a beginner or to teach beginner sewists. Also perfect for group craft projects, Girl Scouts, teens and tweens. Super for gifts as you can make them up quick!
This pattern is great for older phones (text and call only models), compact phones, early (small) smart phones. Some phones that fit nicely include Motorola Rizr, Motorola Razr, Nokia Neuron. Phones measuring up to 2" w by 4 1/2" h by 1/2" thick should work well in this size. Be sure to measure your phone in the case if you have a bumper or decorative hard case.
This pattern is perfect for iPhone, iPod, iPod touch and average sized smart phones. If you have a bumper case for your phone, measure with the case on, as some are slim and some are quite padded. I tested an iPhone with a slim bumper case and it was fine. A phone that measures up to 2 1/2"w by 5"h by 1/2" thick will fit nicely. Most compact cameras are perfect in this size. They are a little thicker than 1/2" so consider the entire circumference of the camera to determine fit. If you measure the circumference (narrow side), up to 6" will fit fine!
This pattern is designed for the new smartphones with oversized screens such as the Samsung Galaxy. Older cameras may fit in this case as well. Devices measuring up to 3 1/2" w by 6" h by 1/2" thick will fit. For cameras, up to an 8" circumference (narrow side) will fit. Nintendo DS and other handheld gaming devices may fit in this case, check measurements for your device.

This detailed pattern will take you step-by-step through the construction of the cover. Every step is described and a full-color photograph is provided to illustrate the step. No assumptions of skill are made (other than operating your sewing machine!) and each step is brief and logically stated in large print.
I have been sewing for interiors for more than 20 years and have attended many classes, seminars and other instructional venues. I hope that sharing my experience with you in making beautiful items for your home will give you much pleasure and reduce the frustration with trying to 'figure out' how to make an item without instructions.
Questions or concerns about the pattern are welcome!
