Measure your phone and add ½ inch to the length and ¾ inch to the width.

The iPhone is 4.5x 2.5 inches, so the cut leather rectangles need to be 5 x 3¼ inches.

STEP TWO

Cut out two rectangles to fit your phone and cut ¼-inch strips to use as the stitching. Depending on the length of

your scrap, you may need to piece these together by tying them together end to end.

STEP THREE

Use the binder clips to hold the two rectangles in place when you make the holes, so they line up.

STEP FOUR

Punch holes around three edges of the rectangles, keeping the pieces together.

STEP FIVE

The leather pieces should look like this before you start weaving.
