  1. 1

    Turn the Velcro fabric so that the softer or fuzzy side is facing up. Place your phone against the edge of the fabric and wrap the fabric around your phone until it is completely covered.

  2. 2

    Cut away the excess fabric, leaving at least 2 inches of fabric over the top of your phone.

  3. 3

    Remove your phone and fold the fabric in half. Draw a horizontal line 2 inches below the top of the fabric. Placing your scissors inside the folded fabric–cut along this line until you reach the fold.

  4. 4

    Cut 2 inches down along the fold of the fabric, so that the top 2 inches of the front half is removed.

  5. 5

    Keeping your fabric folded in half, sew the side and bottom seams together, leaving the top open.

  6. 6

    Turn the fabric inside out and place your phone in the pouch. Make sure the top flap folds easily over the phone.

  7. 7

    Remove your phone and cut two 1 inch horizontal slits in the back of your phone pouch.

  8. 8

    Weave your Velcro wristband through the slits, so that it goes in one and out the other.

  9. 9

    Wrap your cell phone holder around your arm. If the wrist band is too long, cut off any excess strap material.
