We are finally enjoying some warmer days here in Pennsylvania and nothing is more exciting and relaxing than having the kids play outside. Both of my babies are too little to be left alone, so it forces me to get some good ole’ vitamin D as well. In preparation of the summer season coming and anticipation of walks in the park, I decided to make a fun stroller cell phone carrier. I have a bigger stroller that has the basket at the bottom and drink and key compartment at the top but let’s face it…sometimes we would rather grab a small umbrella stroller instead of the big stroller. I made this carrier to hold my cell phone and a few cards/cash if needed.
Cut out 2 rectangular pieces that measure 5 1/2 in. x 13 1/2 in out of fabric and one out of batting. ( One piece of fabric will be for the front and the other piece will be the back piece)
Cut another piece “on the fold” of the fabric that measures 5 1/2 in. x 5 1/2 in. Top stitch the folded end and lay on top of your top piece
Lay your back piece on top of your front piece right sides ( pretty sides) together. Lay your batting on top. Sew around all 4 edges making sure to leave a 3 inch hole for turning.
Turn right side out, press with a hot iron and top stitch all four sides. Follow the instructions on the box of your grommets for steps to finish the project. Some grommets come with different instructions. I bought ones that clicked in to each other. My grommet box came with a small circle template that I used to trace a circle. I then cut out the circle and placed the grommets in the hole and clicked together.
