How to make

Step 1

Place and pin the VELCRO® brand tape to the right sides of both fabrics 1.5cm down from the raw edge of the smaller sides (top) and equidistant from the raw side edges.

Step 2

Sew around the VELCRO® brand tape in a box shape, sewing as close to the edge of the VELCRO® brand tape as you can, but making sure you catch it all!

Step 3

Sew the top edges together by placing the fabrics right sides together. The fabric that will be on the outside of the bag (not the lining) should have the VELCRO®  side to the top near the stitch line. The lining has the VELCRO® on the other end.

Step 4

Sew a seam with a 0.5 seam allowance across this top raw edge.

Step 5

Open up the seam so both fabrics are on opposite sides of each other and With right sides together, fold up each fabric side 22cm to meet the seam leaving the overlay at the top (there is a flap overlay at the top and that’s correct!)

Pin down the side edges and sew up the sides with a small 0.5 seam allowance.


Step 6

Sew up the top box now, again with right sides together and leaving a small gap 3 – 4 cm close to the original seam.

Top Tip! Do not press the VELCRO® brand tape – use a pressing cloth or scrap of fabric if you need to do that!

Step 7

Turn the whole piece through using the small gap and press it all nice and flat. Push the lining inside the outer fabric.

Press, press press!

Step 8

Take your key-ring and slide the ribbon through the small fastening hole to create a loop.

Step 9

Slide the raw edges of the ribbon  loop into the hole you used to turn it through and sew it all up as neatly as you can! (Hand-stitch it if you are worried about your machine stitching here..)

VIOLA! you are done, now you can size this up or down to suit your phone and devices!
