  • DIY | How to Sew a Cell Phone Cover - Episode 1

    Welcome to our first episode of Casauri DIY - How to sew a cell phone cover using a 3D animated lenticular plastic fabric. The video tutorial will show you how to sew your DIY customized phone case with step by step instructions and materials listed below.

    Helena McHugh, Casauri's co-founder, designer, and all-things-hand-made resident expert will show you how to make a cute and sleek customized design phone cover  for any size iPhone or Android phone.  This project is perfect for back to school - stand out on campus with your own handmade phone case! Select from colorful and sophisticated fabrics including fun animal prints.

    Step 1 - Gather the needed materials
    1) 3-D Lenticular Plastic Fabric - available to order at Casauri DIY
    2) Tape Measure
    3) Pencil
    4) Ruler 12" or 18"
    5) Scissors
    6) Sewing Machine with size 14 needle
    7) Thread to match fabric (or a neutral color is good)
    8) Paper to write down phone dimensions
    9) Your phone of choice - iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, any phone

    Step 2 - How to Measure your Phone
    1) Using your tape measure - measure the height of the phone, write on the paper and then add 3/4" for seam allowance and ease. Add both numbers together for the final measurement. Example: If your phone's height is 4 3/4", add 3/4" to the measurement for a total of 5 1/2"
    2) Then measure the width of the phone by circumference - wrap the tape measure across the front then around the sides to the back of the phone and add 3/4". Example: If your phone width is 5 3/4", add 3/4" to the measurement for a total of 6 1/2". Write your final measurements on paper.

    NOTE: Regardless of your phone size, you will need to add 3/4" to both the height and the width measurements.

    Step 3 - Mark the Phone Dimensions on the 3D Fabric
    1) On the back of the 3D fabric (the smooth surface), use your pencil to lightly mark out the dimensions of your phone so that you can cut along the lines
    2) Make sure all the edges of the fabric are even and cut off any rough edges to make them smooth.

    Step 4 - Now you're ready to start sewing the phone case
    1) Prepare your sewing machine with the thread you will use and the No. 14 needle and set the machine to sew 8 to 9 stitches per inch (you can test this on a small sample piece of fabric)
    2) Now fold the cut out fabric in two; make sure all ends are evenly lined up and hold the sides together as you go to the sewing machine
    3) Gauge a 1/4" seam allowance by looking at the distance between the eye of the needle and edge of the presser foot
    4) Position the fabric on your machine to start sewing. Back tack or reverse stitch for about three or four stitches at the beginning, then turn the fabric around and take your time stitching. You may need to lightly "push or feed" the fabric through since it is thick. Do not rush. Stop sewing at about 1/4" from the bottom of the fabric.
    5) Now turn the fabric to sew across the bottom to the end. Sew slowly and steadily, then back tack or reverse stitch about three to four stitches from the end for reinforcement.
    6) Cut the thread close to the stitching to avoid loose threads.
    7) Carefully Shape the curves of your case to remove sharp edges.

    Step 5 - You're done - You made it!
    1) Fit your phone in your new snazzy phone case - show all your friends! They will probably want you to make them one too!
    2) Save the extra fabric for future projects or to make another phone case.
