I’m a little embarrassed to show you my old cell phone case. Gasp!! Kinda like showing you my underwear with a hole in them. I’ve used this case for years and it’s gone through several phones. Many times I have thought about getting a new one, but I haven’t found one I liked like this one. It hooked onto a belt and the phone slipped in and out easily. That’s the good.
The bad is that the strap that goes over the belt is hanging on by a thread. Seriously, if I hadn’t decided to do something about it I am sure I would have lost my phone. The case was also too big for my current phone. Lastly, the mystery vinyl it was made of was cracked and peeling. Ugh!
It was either my sewing machine, the needle or the leather, but I just could not get a zigzag stitch on the edge. The stitches kept skipping even after I changed the needle. After re-cutting new shapes from the skirt a couple of times because I kept ruining them (grrr!!), I decided to just sew a straight stitch on the edge.
Once I gave up on the stupid zigzag stitch, the case went together very quickly.
