How to make your own phone sock

Cell phone holders can be costly, and since they only serve to protect your phone from getting broken or scratched, a sock can serve the same purpose. A child's sock works great, but any size sock will do. If you're not much with a needle or thread or sewing machine purchase some strong glue meant for fabric at a craft store. Making a phone sock is quick and easy, and costs much less than a store-bought phone holder.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Sock (a child's sock is the perfect size, but any sock will do)
  • Scissors
  • Phone
  • Needle and thread or sewing machine
  • Strong craft glue (optional)

  1. 1

    Lay your phone down on the sock to measure how big you need your phone sock to be.

  2. 2

    Cut the excess material off the bottom of the sock.

  3. 3

    Flip the sock inside out and stitch up the bottom with a needle and thread or sewing machine. If you can't sew, use a strong craft glue to bond the edges together.

  4. 4

    Turn the sock right side out.

Tips and warnings

  • The socks are also good for holding iPods.
