How to make your own phone sock

Updated February 21, 2017

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.

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

Cut the excess material off the bottom of the sock.

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.

Turn the sock right side out.


The socks are also good for holding iPods.

Things You'll Need
