Making a case for a touch mobile phone

Today, in the salons of cellular communication there is a huge range of covers for cell phones, which satisfy all needs and tastes. However, it is not uncommon for a customer to purchase a case for a particular phone model that the choice is limited to a few standard options. For a touchscreen phone, it is very easy to find a silicone case or a handbag, but the original options are not so easy to find.
Oar case for the phone.
We strongly suggest not to get involved in the search for commercial offers, but to make an armor-piercing case for a mobile phone with your own hands. The process will take about three hours of time, with all the necessary nearby. So, for the manufacture of the cover will need:
• Mobile phone. You can do with data on its size, but it is desirable to try on it every detail in the manufacturing process
• Flexible plastic. Suitable plastic folder for papers
• Leather.Or another fabric. Better skin
• Metal plate with a thickness of 1 mm. Decking - good
• Tools and more: scissors, marker, ruler, sewing machine, Moment glue
Making a frame.
The frame part is what the whole structure will stand on. Let's make it from plastic.

1. Place the phone display down on a sheet of plastic, and mark on it the dimensions of the cellular. You will need a ruler to accurately verify the size and their application to the material. In order not to get confused, you can act in stages: first, “wrap” the phone into a sheet of material, saving the places of its bend, and only then cut out the elements, the position and shape of which corresponds to the cellular controls — the display, buttons. It should look like this:

The largest notch in the center is a display, two “squares” on opposite sides - a window for the camera
2. Try on the frame, it should turn out like this:

Mount on the phone.
Frontal part.
The front part is a folding plate that protects the display of the phone. It may be similar to the back part - depending on the size of the phone. Everything in order.
1. We take the metal plate as a basis.The main thing here is to correctly calculate strength and weight, since heavy iron will simply pull the pocket down during operation. Professional flooring will do, I used aluminum sheet, which I made ribs of stiffness, bending the edges.
We attach the phone face to the sheet, and note the size.

3. Next, put the plate on the skin, and note its size on the fabric. Repeat the process with another piece of leather. One of them will be external, the other - internal.

in the second figure, the mark is made on the outside of the material for ease of sewing.
4. Apply the outer side of the marked piece of leather to another piece with similar dimensions. We sew them on the CMM on the markup:

The height of the “pocket” may be greater than the height of the phone, taking into account the value of another parameter - its width.
5. Cut out unnecessary parts of the material along the seam:

6. We turn over the “pocket” =), and “dress” it on a metal plate. The front part is ready!

Making the back.
As already mentioned, the back part can be absolutely identical to the front (Without taking into account the size of the cell). To ease the design, replaced aluminum with plastic.

Cut out plastic from a plastic folder. Its main task is to preserve the shape of the hull, and not to strengthen it.
We fasten the resulting parts.
7. Wrap the frame part around the phone case again, press its overlapping parts, and glue them together.

Two sheathed plates and glued frame part.
8. Cut a hole in the rear plate of the camera eye. The edges of the hole can be glued or pulled together with a thread on the inside so that they do not creep away.
9. We fasten the front flap (sorry for the terms) and the back plate, using “extra” millimeters in length, or by stitching an additional piece of leather. The attachment point will hold the flap.

Bonded parts.
10. Attach the back plate to the frame part with glue. Dress ready cover on the phone. For better fixation, the sealant can be glued to the inside of the case in contact with the phone case - this will complicate the “dressing” process, but will protect it from “sliding down” the case. In order for the lid not to come off, you can use a small magnet or velcro.
