What you will need
hand sewing needle
12 1/2″ X 10″ rectangle of light weight cotton fabric
12 1/2″ X 10″ rectangle of heavy weight cotton fabric or home dec. fabric
button that has a shank
elastic hair tie
Print pattern and cut it out.
Do not cut the fabric!
With a marking tool trace around the pattern piece.
You only need to do this on the wrong side of one of the fabrics.
Transfer the marks as well.
Take the hair tie and tie a knot in it.
Pin it on the right side of the fabric.
The pin will be on the wrong side.
Sew in on the line just enough to catch the elastic.
This is what it looks like.
And like this from the front.
Pin right sides together.
Starting at the mark on the left, sew around the line that has been drawn.
At the corner put the needle down and pivot.
When you come to the inside corner put the needle down and pivot again.
This way you can get a sharp point.
This is what you will have when done.
Now it is time to cut. Trim the fabric to 1/2″ away from the seem.
Don’t cut any of the elastic.
Snip all the way to the seem but Not past it on the inside corner
A closer look
Clip the outer corners.
Turn right side out.
It should look like this.
Stitch along the straight edge close to the edge. This will close up the opening.
Here is what you will have.
Pin the side up starting at the corners and matching the curves.
Back-stitch at the beginning .Sew close to the edge.
Back-stitch again where the pocket ends.
Continue along the top to the other side. Back-stitch again where the pocket starts and ends.
When you are done this is what you have.
The button is centered at the bottom of the case. Put a pin in to mark the spot.
Start the threaded needle from the inside and send it outward.
Slid the button on and sew back to the inside.
Next you will take the thread and tie it together with a square knot.
The button should be snug against the case.
Trim back the threads.
The case is ready to use and enjoy!
