My daughter crocheted with a cotton yarn a granny square, folded it in half and sewed around the open edges to make a pouch for my new Tracfone SVC phone for seniors that I got on mothers day. The pouch has a ribbon loop sewed on it so I can wear this phone with the large keys and letters on the screen around my neck. I now don't have to wear my reading glasses to make a call and I have easy access to my phone in a medical emergency.
This simple crocheted pouch is very useful.
