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!
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.
I am from Michigan in the USA. Interesting patterns.
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.
