Hold the phone – in a stylish cell phone holder of your own design! Use your measuring skills to create this custom, fabric holder and decorate with Crayola® Bright Fabric Markers!
People rely on their cell phones to keep track of their contacts, appointments, to-do lists and to have in case of an emergency. It is understandable why people may panic if their cell phones are misplaced! A great solution is to store your phone in a holder so you’ll always know just where to find it!
Create a custom cell phone holder for you or someone you know! Begin by using a ruler to gather the dimensions of the phone. Write down the height, width, and depth of the phone. If you do not have the phone with you, picture holding the phone in your hand. Is the cell phone larger or smaller than your hand? Is it wider than your palm? Imagining the phone will help you to make estimated measurements.
Add the depth to the width and write down the number you calculate. Do the same using the depth and the height. Use the calculations to cut pieces of fabric for the cell phone holder. Fold a piece of 100% cotton fabric in half, and use Crayola Bright Fabric Markers to draw a rectangle on the fabric that is as wide as the width + depth calculation and as tall as the height + depth calculation.
Carefully cut the folded fabric along the measured lines you drew with Crayola Pointed Tip Scissors. You should have two identical rectangles that will easily cover the cell phone. Lay one rectangle on top of the other so that all edges line up evenly.
With fabric glue or a stapler, attach the two rectangles together. If using hot glue, ask an adult for assistance. Be sure to only glue or staple the left, right and bottom edges of the rectangles. Leave the top and middle of the fabric open, creating a pouch for the cell phone.
Cut a long, thin strip of the remaining fabric and attach each end to the top of the cell phone pouch to make a strap for the holder. If you prefer a wrist or arm holder, attach the middle of the fabric strip to the back center of the fabric pouch, leaving both ends open. Fasten a piece of Velcro® to each end of the fabric strip, and the pouch can easily be wrapped around your arm or wrist!
Draw colorful designs and pictures on the fabric cell phone holder with Bright Fabric Markers! Place a small piece of flat, recycled paper inside the fabric pouch to prevent bleed through. Draw your illustrations, making sure you saturated the cloth.
Be creative! Let your personality shine through in your drawings! Experiment using Bright Fabric Markers to create interesting effects and textures. Stain Advisement: Fabric markers are permanent on clothing and contain colorants that may stain household surfaces. Wear a smock to protect clothing and cover your work surface. Recap markers as soon as possible and store in a horizontal position. Do not shake markers.
When you are finished, ask an adult to iron your design. Set iron on cotton setting and iron on the reverse side using a back and forth motion for 4 minutes. Or place garment in the dryer for 30 minutes on the hottest setting. This will fix the color to the fabric.
