Last-Minute DIY Gift Idea: Two-Toned Felt Gadget Cases!

by on Dec 22, 2011

Holy cow, it’s December 22nd and you don’t have a gift for that person who has everything!!  First, take a deep breath; fret not.  And then bust out some basic sewing skills and make them a two-toned gadget case!   


You can size these to fit anything from a smartphone to an e-reader to a tablet.  The supplies are readily available and the required skills are, like we said before, absolutely basic.  All you need is the following:

  • 2 18″ square pieces of wool felt in contrasting or coordinating colors
  • cotton thread to match the exterior felt
  • felt buttons (you can buy these or easily make a few yourself… or just use some fun buttons from your stash!)
  • colorful cording

Dash on over to The Purl Bee for the full tutorial and tips on measuring for different devices.  Good luck and happy holidays!
