Process



STEP 1 :  Cut the felt paper 1 cm larger than the mobile from all sides. You will require two felt sheets of above measurement + one smaller felt (about 3/4th or smaller size of the above measurement) to form a pocket for earphones.

STEP 2 :  Keep above cut felt sheets together, two big sheets at back and the smaller sheet in front. Secure them with pins. See the picture below. Then slowly put the mobile inside it to confirm the cover size. Main thing to look in this demo is that the mobile should be easy to put in and remove out.

STEP 3 :  Remove the pins used in step 2. As shown in the picture below, stitch the felt sheets first.

  • Only one blue felt - bottom middle 1/3rd part
  • Blue and Green felts together - bottom middle 1/3rd part
  • Only green (smaller) felt - top side full
In the picture below single blue felt is back of the mobile cover while blue and green felts together are front of mobile cover.

STEP 4 :  Its hand stitching time now. One important thing to note here - DON'T STITCH BOTTOM MIDDLE 1/3rd PART TOGETHER. Because we want to create a small gap between two felts that will be the charger slot. See the below picture to get a clear idea.
Stitch the back and front side that we prepared at step 3, together. Remember not to stitch too deep, as it will reduce space for mobile.

STEP 5 :  For belt of the mobile cover cut out two long strips from felt sheet. Glue them one upon other. For personalized touch cut out your or your parent's initials from felt sheet.

STEP 6 :  Stitch the above created belt on ONLY back side of the cover. See the picture below. Also glue one of the felt initials on back side. I have stitched only the felt initial before gluing it, to give it a stitch look. Remember to stitch belt ONLY to back side felt.

STEP 7 :  Now take two belt sized magnets. On front side of cover glue one magnet on the belt. Then fold the belt in front and mark where the belt ends. Now glue other magnet on that mark. Check whether it clings correctly. Also glue other felt initial on the front of cover.
