DIY Phone Charging Station

In our house, we have a spot where we place our phones to charge during meal times. I sewed this DIY Phone Charging station for every member of my family so we could have a clean and easily identifiable place to keep our phones. This is a simple sewing project that is great for beginners. I also take this little charging station with me when I travel so I always have a nice place to store my charging cable. You can also use this fabric holder for other items. Kids can use it in their playroom to hold some of their art supplies, sewers can use it for their sewing tools, and teens can enjoy it in the bathroom to hold their makeup and other items. You can make this sewing project in about half an hour, so you could make a few of these in an afternoon. I used some fun print fabric and I think it turned out great. It is just what I need. The fabric you need will depend on the size of your phone or other devices you want to charge. You’ll also need some interfacing to add some stiffness to your fabric and some pins and clips to hold everything together.

This would a fun gift for friends or family. Gather up your supplies from the list below and let’s get started!

What You’ll Need:

DIY Phone Charging Station

Step 1: Cut out Fabric

Start this DIY phone charging station sewing tutorial by cutting out your fabric pieces. You will cut out FOUR main body pieces at 10” x 5”: 1 front, 1 back, 1 heavyweight stabilizer, and 1 fleece interfacing. You will cut out THREE pocket pieces at 5.5” x 7”: 1 front, 1 back, 1 fleece interfacing. And last, you will cut ONE hook piece, which should be 2” x 6”.  If you are using coordinating fabric, you can decide how you want to cut the fabric. You can either cut both main body pieces one color and the pocket another, or you can cut one body piece and pocket piece one color and the other body piece and pocket the other color. 

Step 2: Fuse Pieces Together

Using the heated iron, fuse the main body fleece to the wrong side of the back main body piece.

Next, fuse the main body heavyweight stabilizer to the wrong side of the main front piece. 

After, fuse the fleece pocket piece to the wrong side of the outer pocket piece. 

Step 3: Sew Pocket

Place the front and back pocket piece together right side to right side, or pattern sides together. Pin or clip the top edge together and then sew together using a straight stitch with a ¼” inseam allowance. 

Once sewn, turn so that the wrong sides are together and the main pattern pieces are on the outside. Press the seam you just sewn. 

Optional: To prevent shifting, you can baste the open edges, so the fabric does not shift for the remaining steps. 

Step 3: Create Pocket Pleats

Using a fabric marker or pencil, mark 1” and 2” from each side. That means you will have four markings. 

To create the pocket pleats, pinch the fabric together at one of the center markings and then fold it over to the outer marking next to it. Pin or clip the fold. Complete this for both sides. Baste the pleat to secure using a 1/8” inseam. 

Step 4: Baste Pocket to Main Piece

Pin or clip the RIGHT side of the pocket piece facing the WRONG side of the front body piece. Make sure all edges are aligned and adjust pleating if necessary. Baste along the edges of the pocket using a 1/8” inseam. 

Step 5: Create Loop

Using the mini iron, fold the 2” x 6” lengthwise in half wrong side to wrong side and press the seam.

Fold one side down to the middle pressed crease and press again. Next, fold the other side into the middle pressed crease and press. 

Last, fold lengthwise in half one last time and press. 

Sew a straight stitch down the open edge to secure. 

Bring both end pieces together to create the loop or hook for your charging station. Sew edges together to hold in place. 

Step 6: Construct Charging Station

Take the front main body piece with the pocket sewn on and place it facing up. Take the loop and place it so that it is at the top of the main body piece but facing down onto the body piece. This means the raw edge of the loop should be facing up. Make sure that the loop is overhanging the edge about ½”. If you would like, you could secure the loop here so that it does not slip in the next few steps.

The form you have selected does not exist.

Next, place the back main body piece facing down onto the front main body piece. Right sides of the main body pieces should be facing each other with the pocket and loop in the middle. 

Pin or clip all around the edge. 

Sew a straight stitch using a 1/4” inseam. Leave about a 2” opening around the top side to flip right side out. 

Step 7: Final Touches

Turn the piece right side out through the opening. You can use a pointer tool to make sure you have poked out all the corners. Press the piece to make sure all seams lay flat. Tuck the fabric near the opening inside and pin or clip. Topstitch around the edges of the main fabric piece while securing the opening. 

And that’s it! Now you know how to make your own DIY phone charging station! This is a fun and simple sewing project that will give you a nice place to charge you phone at home and on the go. Pick out some fun fabric and make one of these for the entire family.
