I needed a cell phone case for my new phone.  I wanted something that stretched to phone shape and easily fits into my pocket.  I came up with the following.

Step 1: Materials for case

I purchased a stretchable knee support form a dollar store. Pulled out needle, scissors, needle threader and some matching thread.  This actually yields two cases.

Step 2: Lay out

Step 3: Cut the leg brace

I cut the brace with household scissors about 1 inch past the side of the phone.  (I did not measure).

Step 4: Sew the cut end.

I do not know the name of the sewing stitch I used. I started about a ¼ inch from cut off end.  I pull my stitches tight, going over the cut end; spacing my stitching about ¼ apart.  Going from one side to the other and back again; I then knot it off and cut.

Step 5: Turn it inside out

Turn it inside out and bingo a nice inexpensive cell phone case.
