If you want to make a homemade Christmas gift or birthday present for your friends and family, you can easily sew this felt case for devices or to use as a make-up pouch or pencil case.
Sewing your own items doesn’t have to be difficult. There are just a couple of straight lines of stitching in this project and you can re-use the template to make multiple cases in different colours and fabrics.
I made this little device case a while ago and luckily I filmed the process so I thought I would put together a quick video to show you how I made it step by step. I’ve made the same technique to make a case for my husband’s tablet and to make a pouch for my little digital camera.
YOU WILL NEED:
- Felt or any non-fraying fabric
- Needle and thread
- Pen and ruler
- Optoinal – sewing machine
If you want to see just how easy this felt carry case is to make, I’ve popped a video on my YouTube channel @Cassiefairy – and here it is:
Of course, I have to say that you should take care while sewing to avoid injury and definitely don’t rely on the case to protect your device. But it’s a cute project to make that you can personalise with any fabrics, buttons and colours you like.
I hope you’ll have a go at making your own felt cases and can make some handmade gifts for your family and friends this Christmas. I’d love to see your creations if you try out this project so please tag me in your photos on Instagram @cassiefairy.
