To finish your case, fold the bottom end up 8 inches. Fold flap with buttonholes over the top. Your case should measure approximately 5″ wide and 8″ high.
Lay buttons on top of buttonholes. Make sure they’ll fit through the opening (it will stretch a little).
Sew buttons to main piece under the flap with a yarn needle. I usually cut a length of the yarn I used for the project and separate it out into several strands, then use that to sew on my buttons. Perfect matching thread every time, and you only have to do a couple passes through the button to get a really good hold!
After your buttons are in place, fold the long piece backwards up 8″. Imagine you have just turned it inside out. Using your yarn needle and a length of yarn, stitch up the two sides of the case. I use a whip stitch. Then turn your case right-side-out and button closed. That’s it!
