this knitted innertube case will really protect your telephone or i-pad, 'cause is really thick and gummy.

knit the innertube (look at my instructable"knitting with innertube).
you should make a square piece of the mesurement of your telephone or i-pad.
I suggest to make the innertube thread really thin (2/3mm)'cause if not your case will become way too heavy and thick.

Step 3: CUT FABRIC

cut the piece of fabric one centimeter bigger than the edges of the inner tube piece you made.
i used fleece cause is elastic, soft and the edges want  unthread

Step 4: SEW FLEECE TO INNERTUBE
