Phone Charging Pocket Tutorial

I have a quick tutorial for you today!  I made this little pocket for my daughter to use in her dorm room at college.  Now she has a place to hang her phone near her bed while it charges.  So Cute!

Cut out your jean pocket approx 1 inch around all edges.  Cut (or piece) a scrap of fabric the same size.

Place your fabric right side up on a slightly larger piece of batting.  Quilt your fabric and batting piece together. I did a little straight line quilting following my piecing lines…

Slip the d-ring on your ribbon (about a 5″ piece) and fold ribbon in half.   Pin onto the top center of your pocket.  You can see I sewed a belt loop onto my ribbon first, just for fun!

Place your pocket and quilted fabric square right sides together and sew around perimeter of actual pocket shape – using the pocket edge as a guide.  Leave an adequate opening on long edge for turning your piece right side out.

    This would be a useful gift for people who travel a lot, too. Hotels don’t always put the power outlets (with space to plug in) in the most convenient places. I plan to make one for me to tuck away in my suitcase for just those occaisons. Thanks for sharing the tutorial.

    Very pretty. I have needed this!!! My cell phone dangles against the floor from the outlet when charging. How useful. Thanks for sharing. Will make one right away.
