Make A Gift On The 25th Club...Cell Phone Key Chain Case Tutorial

Welcome back to "Make a Gift on the 25th Club". On the 25th of every month, every one who joins the club will try to make a gift for Christmas. You can read the original post HERE, but the gist is...we all proCRAFTinate around the holidays and planning some crafting or sewing on the 25th of each month will help us stay ahead of the game!! If the actual 25th isn't good for you...some time the week of the 25th is great too!!

So join in on the fun and sign up today. Grab the Christmas button on my right side bar to remind you each month!! If you click the "Button" button it will show you how to add a button to your blog. Wow, that's a lot of buttons is that sentence LOL!!!

To help you each month, I'll try to have a tutorial for you...last month's scarf tutorial HERE

and here is this month's...a key chain cell phone case.  

This tutorial is similar to the other eye glass case holder and book mark case...just different measurements. Click HERE and HERE for the other tutorials.

You need...
  • 2 strips of fabric 4 inches by 12 inches (longer or wider if your cell phone is bigger)
  • "D" ring
  • key chain rings
  • piece of ribbon 4-5 inches long

Loop ribbon through the D ring and pin.

Place fabric right sides together.

Pin one of the short edges...

On the other short edge, center the ribbon with the D ring on the fabric...

cover with the other layer...

and pin in place.

Close up of the layers with the ribbon.

Sew with a 1/4 inch seam. I went over the section where the ribbon was a few times to really secure it.

Sew the other short edge with a 1/4 inch seam too.

2 short edges sewn...long sides still open.

Bring up the bottom seam to match the other seam in the middle.

Match the seams.

and pin in place.

Sew one long side completely with a 1/4 inch seam and then sew the other long side, but leave a small opening for turning.

See the opening?

Turn right side out.

At this point the case is reversible, so you can decide which fabric you'd like.

Just push the lining fabric inside the pocket of the other fabric. Iron flat.

Add your key rings to the "D" ring. You could just have one ring on the ribbon instead of the "D" ring, but it's easier to remove one key if needed.

Now you are all set to add your cell phone and debit card and you're good to go!!

To keep the cell phone secure, you can add 2 dots of Velcro, snap, hook or button.

Stick or sew in place...which ever you have on hand.

Perfect gift for any one!!

Happy 25th,
