Phone case


Hi! Good to see you! I hope you spent wonderful 1st of May! We celebrated at the same time also Easter here in Greece. Just before summer season started, I got a new phone and of course it needed new case.

I really like my ‘Kimberly Sac’ bag so I used the same Marimekko’s Ailakki fabric. Sets are always nice. I cut piece of my favourite part from the fabric.

This was a good time to do the straight line stitching by machine, which I really enjoy seeing in your projects.

No need for pattern to make this. Just use your phone for measuring and add enough extra space so it’s easy to get the phone out …I  tried my old case and it was so tight that I lost the sound from my phone?! I couldn’t find any where to set the sound and finally a friend helped and said that it should be on the side of the phone!

For the closing I chose to use magnet. The closing cover and the loop are in the seam.  I left open the bottom seam in the lining and from there I turned the case and then sew the last seam.


At the moment I have too many phones … and still I don’t want to leave totally my older phone, the Samsung because Instagram is there more versatile. So I feel that there is an other phone case on the list.

There are some fun things in my sewing list and I hope to show you more soon.  What’s’ up ladies?!


If you need a little bit colour energy, it comes here!

    • Kiitos Anneli! Menen tuon rannan ohi usein useammankin kerran paivassa. Nyt on ollut tosi kova tuuli ja aallokko ja rannalla on nyt 2 polkuvenetta hiekkaan huuhtoutuneina. Enpa taida ehtia kuvailemaan tyomatkaa kauemmas… Terveisin Teje
