So that I can feel like I'm doing something good for society I have found an outlet for my sewing that can help a children's charity. Chicks provide free respite breaks for disadvantaged children from across the UK. As part of the experience they give each child a memory bag and are looking for people to make these bags, so I made one!

button (or other fastening device!)
Sewing machine and thread!
Put the two pieces together withe main fabric inside. Sew around the three unfinished sides to create a pocket. Trim the excess wadding (so that it isn't clumpy when you turn it out. ... Turn it right side out! Hopefully the iPhone fits inside (mine did - actually if you try this yourself you probably want to double check against your phone the whole way through the process.
Add whatever type of fastening you like to hold the flap down to the front. I used one of the many spare buttons I have knocking about and, for the first time, used the button hole setting on my sewing machine. It's so clever!!! Et voila! One padded iPhone cover.
