This is a great gift any time of year! Great graduation gift, birthday, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, or even for yourself! Kids and adults of all ages have electronic devices.

Wash the project in the washing machine on hot water cycle with jeans or towels for high agitation. Repeat as necessary for desired level of felting. Sample in photos was felted in machine two times. Let it dry completely before lining.


Cut the felt pieces to fit inside the case (post-felting dimensions). Using needle and thread, sew them together along two short sides and one long side. Insert sewn lining into felted case. Sew the top of the lining to the entire perimeter of the felted case.


Cut the elastics 18″  long (or 2″ shorter than your finished felted bag height). You want it to be secure when stretched. Sew each strap into a loop. Secure each loop to back side of felted case approx 3″ from each side.
