Smartphone+ Part Deux!

Yesterday I posted my final smartphone project. A reader commented about adding a pocket to make the phone more secure. It got me thinking -- my phone is thin but not all phones are. Last week I was meeting with my tax preparer (not my favorite thing to do) and I noticed that she was eyeing my wristlet. We started talking about our love for all things portable and she showed me what she used. Her little zippered bag was cute but she couldn't carry her phone in it.

Today I went to breakfast with a friend and after some stimulating conversation, came home and went to work on amending this pattern. I had to work around two issues: 1) the pocket had to be on the outside and 2) the phone had to be easily accessible but secure. This is what I came up with:

I love this pocket but struggled to come up with a way to keep the phone from falling out. I considered velcro -- but I HATE velcro and try to avoid it at all costs. I sewed the pocket on before I thought through it, so I was kind of stuck. I starting digging in my little hardware cabinet and came up with a grommet, toggle, and twill tape.

It turned out! I might replace the grommet with a buttonhole when I make the next one. I worry about the grommet scratching the glass (but's Gorilla Glass, so it really shouldn't scratch!).


It's still thin.

And here you can see how I attached the twill tape! YAY! I'll be taking my pattern out of my Craftsy Pattern Shop to update it.

  1. that's a great product it makes your phone stylish yet still out of the snatchers eye because you can't tell that it has phone inside of it
