No-Sew Bobble Phone Case

This quick and easy pattern for a No-Sew Bobble Phone Case is perfect for beginners and last minute gifts. It’s simple, linear design is understated enough to complement any style, but when worked up in a bold color, it provides some serious pop.

If you’re well-seasoned in the art of the bobble, raid your stash and make one for all your favorite purses immediately. If you’ve never worked a bobble stitch in your life, don’t worry! You’ll be bobbling in your sleep by the end of your first phone case, and much like a potato chip, I doubt you’ll stop at one.

It’s worked in the round from the bottom up, so there’s no extra sewing involved, just crochet and go. I made the case to fit a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which is a larger phone, about 3.5″ x 6″, and it fits like a glove. There’s no need for a button closure, zipper, or snap, because it fits so snugly and the bobbles make an uber-effective cushion. I never worry about throwing it into my purse with all the miscellaneous riff-raff floating around in there!
