This simple cell phone case pattern has two different endings. You can choose a top flap to keep the cell phone completely encased while it’s in your purse, or a top loop so you can attach the case to the outside of your purse.

    I really love reading your blog! You share some wonderful patterns, and I really like that most of them are so quick and easy.

    I have a tip for taking close up shots of your finished objects. There should be a button on your camera with a little flower icon. That is your “macro” button. When you use the macro feature on your camera, you can get really close (about 12 – 18 inches) to your subject and the picture will still be clear. HTH!

    You have so many good ideas!

    Is that loop velcroed or buttoned?

    I buttoned mine πŸ™‚ Mostly because I have no velcro and a bag full of buttons…hehe.

    Thank you, I have been looking for a Cellphone case and they are so expensive that I decided to make one and since I crochet all of the time, I figured that I would try yours. Thank you so much it is easier and cheaper this way.

    I’m having getting this to work out. If you chain 6 then start at the 2nd chain from hook you don’t have a chain at the end for 2 sc. Can anyone help me with this?
