Handmade Mobile Cover

how to made hand made mobile cover
Now a days different types of hand made mobile cover or pouches are available in market, but if you make something with your own , it becomes special to you, same is with me for this beautiful mobile cover . This is made from a piece of cloth which was derived from cutting of kurta’s front panel. As it was of heavy embroidery I wanted to utilize it hence this mobile cover came to existence.
step by step instructions to make mobile cover
In the last pic it is clearly visible that how side panel cutting of kurta has been used in making mobile cover. It took only ½ an hour to make it.
I have used hand stitching to make it, as edges are secured hence folding was not required. Take a piece of cloth according to the size of your mobile, stitch from one side and bottom to make pocket. A small strip of cloth has been attached on top as a flap. Attach glass stones to it with the help of needle. Attach a titch button to it.
Mobile case is ready, this is the benefit of sewing your clothes with your own, from extra cloth you can prepare beautiful hand bags, mobile covers , potlis and many other accessories.
