I always have trouble storing my smartphone in the pockets of my jeans or shirt. It is almost necessary to wear some kind of jacket to safely carry my phone. Here is a solution I think works. A phonepouch on your belt. This one is made of some old T shirt scraps and a bike innertube.

Cut 3 pieces of bike-tube about 1 3/4 length of your phone. Mine is 23 cm. Attach the three pieces to each other and to a piece of fabric with one line of stitching. Make a line of stitching round the outline to secure the fabric to the tube.
Mark out the lenght of your phone. The remaining part of the backside will become flap and can be finished with a zigzag or decorative stitch. Notice that I made the flap a little less wide to correspond with the measurements of the phone ( 7 cm in my case).

Extra-extra, second edition:
Notice photo 4 and 5
Using a bit bigger tube I only needed two pieces witch I cut with extra seam. Stiching is done with a simple straight stich. On the end of one side I added a rim, cut out of another piece of tire

Step 3: The belt loop

Do you sell these?

Not yet, but could do so!
Is 20 euro plus shipping cost (as a simple letter approx. 3 euro) a reasonable idea? With precise measurements of the phone I am willing to take orders.

Thanks Foobear,
I was not satisfied with the fringy edges, and made myself a sleeker one. Photo's will follow soon.

You read my mind, I was thinking about something like this. Good result - very masculine, not girly. cool!
