Crochet I-phone/I-pod Holder -- Hearts Bag...


I crocheted this "Hearts" Holder/Bag for my i-phone; it will hold an i-pod, too.  This holder will especially be useful when you have to charge your electronic device and fearful of knocking it off the nightstand, table or counter or you have a very short charging cord and don't want to leave your device lying in the floor.   There's enough room for excess cord to sit comfortably inside.

Materials used:
I used a 5.5mm hook, Red Heart Supersaver #4 yarn, a plastic shower hook and a tapestry needle for weaving to make this super cute novelty item...that makes a great and quick gift!!!

Note:  for the hearts I used a 3mm, 4mm & a 5mm hook to vary the size

This would make a great gift for your Valentine -- there's tons of variations that can be implemented from my base pattern to make this gender-friendly.  There's 1000's of free appliqué patterns on Pinterest to choose from -- hearts, sports balls, animals, team logos, balloons, angels....and the list goes on!!!  Basically anything you are into you could find an appliqué pattern to attach to the front of the holder to personalize it to say "I Love You or Be Mine"...

Crochet i-phone /i-pod Holder

1.  With plastic shower hook, I joined white yarn and worked 40 single crochet stitches around the hook.  Join to 1st stitch.  Chain 1.
2.  Round 2:  single crochet in the first 6 stitches, in the next stitch do a triple crochet stitch, then a double crochet in the next stitch and a triple crochet stitch in the next one, single crochet stitch into the next 28 stitches.  You will have 3 stitches left -- a triple crochet, a double crochet and a triple crochet in the last stitch.  Slip stitch to join to the first single crochet stitch. 
3.  Round 3:  slip stitch into the first 20 stitches.  Into the 20th stitch, chain 1 and single crochet stitch.  1 single crochet stitch in the next 14 stitches.  Chain 1 and turn.   (15 stitches)
4.  Round 4:  1 single crochet across into each stitch.  (15)
5-8.  Repeat Round 4. 
9.  Round 9:  single crochet 2 together (sc2tog), single crochet in the next 11 stitches and sc2tog the last 2 stitches.  (13)
10.  Round 10: 1 single crochet in each stitch across.  Chain 1. (13)
11-50.  Repeat Round 10.  Before fastening off yarn, fold the piece up and pin in place.  Then whipstitch the side.  Fasten off.  Join yarn on opposite side and whipstitch the side.  Fasten off.  Weave ends.  

--  I made 3 hearts and joined.  (I think it would have been easier to 
join to the holder prior to whipstitching the sides together...) 
--  unlimited options with all the resources available: can be made seasonal to give as gifts, fancy up to make as a really nice gift for a friend or co-worker.  

Very versatile -- place to store i-phone and cord without fear of damaging your phone; as well as a portal to use for charging electronics....plug & charge securely at home in an outlet or on the go in the vehicle....

1.  Make and sale as much as you want.
