How to make felt owl covers for your electronics

This tutorial will work for I phones, I pods, I pads, Droids and more.

Follow the same steps for all electronics, the only difference will be the size you cut our felt pieces for the cover (step 1).

What you will need:
Felt- two different shades of brown, blue, orange and white.
matching thread for the two shades of brown
two beads or buttons
Fabric-tac (fabric glue)
sewing needles
sewing machine

Step 1:
Chose which shade of brown you would like your cover to be and cut two rectangles of the same size.
This is where the different measurements come in for the different electronics. (You can google them.)

Today I will be showing you the i phone 4
measurements are 
width: 2.31 inches
height: 4.5 inches

for all electronics add 1/2 inch to the width and 1/4 inch to the height

so for the i phone 4
cut to felt pieces at
width: 2.81 inches
height: 4.75 inches

Step 2:
place the two felt pieces together and sew a 1/4 inch in from the edge of the fabric on your sewing machine around 3 of the edges (2 longs sides and 1 short side) 

sew this using the thread that matches your other shade of brown that you will be useing for the owls body
example: tan felt/ brown thread

Step 3:
cut out
 using a different shade of brown felt than used for the cover, cut out a body for the owl
have fun with this make it creative and your own or you can use the brown shape in the picture below.

two eyes out with the blue felt 

two smaller white pupils using the white felt 

and a diamond shaped nose with the orange or yellow felt.

Step 4:
Using a different shade of thread sew V shapes onto the body of your owl for the feathers

Step 5:
Sew your beads of buttons onto the white felt circles.
I positioned mine into the bottom left part of the circle so the owl would appear to be look to the left.

Step 6:
Fabric glue your owl together!
Position the eyes and nose onto the body and glue.
Then position your owl on the the case and glue!

The finished product!
