Phone Loop for Lanyard from Fabric Scraps



         A certain loved one keeps misplacing his phone. He has tried various holders. but his phone has popped out & lost unnoticed. Worse, there is no way the holder keeps him from forgetting it in his lap then getting out of the car and dropping it unnoticed. Most of the time he lays it on a store counter or shopping cart and walks off. The craziest is when it slides into the car floor or between the seats and blends in with the black carpet. He ultimately has to drive 30 minutes to my house to get me to call or locate his phone.   He already chains his billfold to his belt loop, so I HAD to come up with a way to tie the phone to him. 

     The solution? Fabric scraps of course. It's SO simple.

Tuesday Tutorial
First you need an available hole in the case. 
We just happen to have one that isn't used in the upper right corner. 
Maybe its there for this reason?
Mr. G thinks its the speaker, but there is no sound change.

Fold edges of 8 inch piece to the center.
Then fold in half again and stitch along edge.

Fold the other piece in half.
Notice the edges of this piece are not finished.
It won't be exposed to fraying,
and turned edges will cause bulk.
Stitch the 8 inch piece to the folded edge as shown.
Pull loop through opening.
Glue to inside of case if you are afraid it will slip.
Put the case back on the phone.

If you need a lanyard,
cut a width of fabric (45 inches) x 2.
Sew like the 8 inch piece above
except top stitch along each side.

Tie the 2 ends together
to make one loop.

Then just loop your new lanyard through the loop you just added to your phone.

This lanyard is long enough to tie to yourself and stick in your pocket,
or hang around your neck.
Best of all you used something that didn't cost you anything,
your fabric scraps.
