Cut 2 pieces bigger than your device.
I used the backpocket part to get space for earphones you can use zipper, button or wahtever part you want.
Be creative and give those old clothes some good use.

Step 3: Getting the Size Right

You dont want your sleeve to be too big or small.
Use carboard to make an square with the same surface area and thickness as your device you can sew with this inside of the fabric and not risk the integrity of your device.


unless you want the thread to be visible,. it looks kind of cheap if you do so.

Step 4: Marking Area

Mark with a pen the outline of your device and where will you sew.
Take in account your device isn´t flat, Use a paper and carboard version of your device to sew with it inside so you get the size right.

Step 5: Sewing

Pretty straightforward
sew 3 sides of the fabric where you marked them.
make sure the fabric is backwards so you can turn it around and it looks neat.
