For one Mobile Phonebag you will need:
- 17x14cm piece of 3mm thick neoprene laminated with different colour jersey on either side (available from www.sedochemicals.de, Berlin/ Germany
- 2cm each (hooks and lashes) of 2cm wide velcoro
- about 2m of thread
- Sewing needle
- Pen and paper
Step 1: Trace and cut
The body is a 14x11cm rectangle and the bottom is a 3x6cm oval.
Trace the stencil to the neoprene and cut the neopren to shape.
Step 2: Attaching Velcro
edge /-----2.5cm-----/----2cm----/-----------5cm---------/----'2cm----/------2.5cm------/ edge
Fold the squares of Velcro and sew them on as seen in the pictures.
If the sewing gets tough you can use a pair of pliers to full the needle through.
Step 3: Sewing sides
Double the thread by threading the needle and tying a knot with both ends.
Start at the top, closest to the Velcro, this will be the opening.
Make sure to double stitch the first stitch and pull tightly after each stitch all the way down the side.
Step 4: Sew on bottom
Again, pull tightly after each stitch.
Stitch the last stitch twice and plunge the needle through the neoprene for 2, 3 cm and then cut the thread and it should hold.
Now that you've finished sewing, turn the Mobile Phonebag "inside-out" or just the other way around since there is no right side.
Straighten the stitches so that the layers of neoprene you sewed together now face each other. This gives it shape and makes the seams look much better.
