The kids seem to be squabbling more than normal. It’s been rainy so they have been stuck inside. My brain feels a bit mushy and my nerves are a bit frayed today. I almost didn’t publish this cute Fancy Stripes Device Pouch because I really didn’t love how the sides ended up looking. It looks a bit messy, and that is frustrating because I have been (unfortunately) working on it for a while.
I might go back to the drawing board with it and update it. But for now, I decided to go for it and push publish.
The pattern for this pouch is more of a guide. I wanted to give you basic directions so you could make it fit whatever device you own. You could make this pouch for your phone, tablet or laptop! My iPad mini is in the photo.
Fancy Stripes Device Pouch
Make a chain the matches the width of your device, it should be about 2 sts wider, when you stretch the chain a bit.
1. Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc in each st across. Turn.
Join 2nd color
2. Ch 2. (carry 1st color yarn through whole row)Dc in each st across. Turn.
Bring up 1st color
3. Ch 1. (Carry 2nd color yarn through whole row) Sc in each st across.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until your piece is twice the length of your device. End on the sc row, so the right side of the sc rows are facing you when you make the edge.
Continuing where you left off, sc down the long side, across the bottom and up the other side, sl st into the left side of the last row on top.
Bow: (using your 3rd color)
Make a ch the exact width of your piece.
1. Dc in 2nd ch from hook and dc in each ch across.
2. – 8. Ch 2. Dc in each st across.
Fold your striped piece with the right side of the white stitches facing each there. Place the bow piece in between the two layers, making sure it’s straight. Pin it in place.
Using white (same color as your thin stripes), sc from the opening, down to the fold, sewing the side shut. Make sure you are catching the bow, sewing it in place as well.
Repeat for the other side.
Turn it inside out.
Pinch the middle of the bow. Wrap a length of yarn around it. Be sure to wrap the ends opposite ways and tight a firm knot behind the bow to hide it.
Make the small button loop by finding the stitch to the right of the middle stitch and joining your yarn. Ch 15 and sl st into the st to the left of where you joined. Tie off.
Sew a button on the front of the pouch, corresponding with your button loop.
This was a fun and easy project! I just wish I could connect it a little nicer. Maybe working it in rounds instead would have been better. Hm…
