I set out to create a small container for my phone after finding poly vinyl in the remnants section of my fabric store.  Incorporating a little know-how, I now have a waterproof pouch to hold a few cards (like my ID and a credit card) and my phone.

I had fun making this, and it will take you less than an hour on a standard sewing machine. Good luck!

I made this at TechShop!

Step 1: Gather materials

- Ruler
- Thread: This is not pictured, but I used an all purpose white.
- Fabric: I took the dimensions of my phone with the case on (height, length, and depth) and then cut out fabric pieces according to this equation:
width of fabric = twice the width of my phone + twice the depth of my phone + 1"
length of fabric = length of my phone + 1"
My pieces ended up being 6"x6".
Dimensions of the strap: 2"x6"
- Rotary cutter (or shears)
- Duct tape
- Pins
- Standard sewing machine
