This project was a total fail, when I first made it. I made it to use for my phone for running and then the magnets were supposed to hold it onto my pants. Well it didn’t work, so I ended up making this for my phone.
It still was a cute little pouch, just didn’t work for my phone. So I decided to put my business cards in it and it worked perfectly!! So the fail turned into something good!
Here’s how I made it
I took some cute fabric from Hobby Lobby (I love all the new designs they are getting in!). I cut four pieces, two were 6x7 inches, that will be the back and the flap. And then two pieces 6x4 inches for the front.
I put the front facing each other and then sewed three of the four sides together.
Now for the magnet. I put it onto the front piece and marked where I need to sew the fabric. I just sewed the three sides.
Then I put the magnet into the hole and sewed the fourth side.
I did the same thing for the bigger piece, matching the magnet up with the other magnet to see where I needed to put it. I place the magnet into the one side of the fabric that I didn’t sew up when I put the two pieces together.
Once the magnets were in, I sewed up the fourth side.
I then put the two pieces together, putting the fabric I wanted on the outside facing each other and then sewed the bottom and the two sides.
I flipped it inside out and then put my business cards into it.
