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!
You will need:
- * one jean pocket
- * piece of fabric and batting slightly larger than pocket
- * embellishments/perle cotton, lace, fabric, beads etc.
- * command hook
- * d-ring & scrap of ribbon
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.
Trim away excess pocket and fabric/batting, clip corners.
Turn right side out and stitch opening closed.
admire the back…
Add applique and embellish pocket with fabric, perle cotton, ribbon, lace, beads… whatever makes you happy!
