Today we will sew a simple cover from old jeans and decorate it with embroidery from glass beads. The work is not difficult, but requires perseverance. So let's get started!
We will need:
• old jeans
• tailor pins
• a piece of chalk
• threads in fabric color or close to it
• a piece of Velcro 1.5x1.5 cm
• bugles of two contrasting shades
• thin needle for embroidery
We lay out the jeans, aligning the edge to the bottom. We put the phone down a little from the last line, as shown in the figure. Set aside 0.5 cm on each side of the phone and draw straight lines with a ruler and chalk. Then, retreating another 0.5 cm from these lines, draw parallel ones.
We split the double layer with pins in several places and cut along the extreme lines.
After removing the pins, we apply Velcro to the upper allowance exactly in the middle from the inside.
We sew on a typewriter around the perimeter of the Velcro, going at the end of a line at each other. If there is no machine, you can carefully sew on manually.
Again, we chop off two layers and sew on a typewriter along the marked lines, making fastenings at the beginning and at the end of the line.
Fluff the allowances slightly, making a fringe.
Now it remains only to decorate the finished cover. Draw any drawing with chalk - it can be an arbitrary line, a zigzag, parallel lines or some kind of pattern.
For beginners in this business, you need to choose a drawing according to the principle: the simpler the better.
Embroider the pattern with the needle back, as shown in the figures.
Take a genuine thread so that you do not have to stop often.
Our case is ready! A lace can be sewn to the inside of the edges to hang the phone around the neck. Improvise, show your imagination and you will get an exclusive cover, which can also be a great gift.
