BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The Cell Phone Arm Wonder Pouch is related to the field of endeavor of container/holster devices for cell phones. Current technology known to me involving these devices led me to the conclusion that cell phones on belt holsters and clips were difficult to access if the person was involved in an active situation (for example hunting, exercising or carrying packages). I interviewed several people and observed others as they used their cell phones on clips and holsters. As a result of my research, I created The Cell Phone Arm Wonder Pouch design of an elastic band with a pouch that can be worn on the arm, calf, over and under clothes.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The Cell Phone Arm Wonder Pouch is designed for those cell phone users who have difficulty accessing their cell phones because the phones are deep in pockets and purses or hard to reach on belt clips. The Cell Phone Arm Wonder Pouch is designed to fit the upper arm or calf of any user. An elastic strap is securely attached to the pouch, which has a clear window that allows the user to view the keypad and cell phone screen. The Cell Phone Arm Wonder Pouch has a fold over secure closure after the phone is inserted into the pouch. Where ever you go the Cell Phone Arm Wonder Pouch goes with you. You can wear the Cell Phone Arm Wonder Pouch over or under your clothing. When you are not using your phone, the Cell Phone Arm Wonder Pouch is great for discreetly carrying identification, money and other personal items.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL VIEWS OF THE DRAWING

FIG. 1 on page _____ of the specifications show the front view of the Cell Phone Arm Wonder Patch with the flap closure down. The drawing is not to scale and is a presentation of the measurements of the pouch.

FIG. 2 on the same page shows the back view of the Cell Phone Arm Wonder Patch with the closure flap in the up position. The drawing also illustrates the elastic band that is worn on the arm or calf.

FIG. 3 on page ______ of the specifications is an expanded view of the Cell Phone Wonder Pouch from the top. The drawing is not to scale but is a presentation of the measurements of the pouch.

FIG. 4 on the same page is a bottom view of the Cell Phone Wonder Pouch. The drawing depicts the arch of the elastic band. When secured to the pouch the band creates a loop, which has a diameter of 3 inches. This loop is worn on the arm. It is expandable to a radius of 6 inches. The length of the elastic can be increased to accommodate arms or calves that may be outside the average size (for example—body builders)

FIG. 5 on the same page is a side view of the Cell Phone Arm Wonder Patch with the flap closed. With no phone inserted the flattened pouch is approximately ⅝ths of an inch deep. The soft pouch is flexible and pliable enough to expand and hold material with a thickness of 2 inches.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The Cell Phone Arm Wonder Pouch in its making differs from other metal and plastic clip type cell phone holders can break and can be awkward and uncomfortable to wear. The Cell Phone Arm Wonder Pouch is a soft enclosed pouch that is cut from vinyl fabric and a heavy weight plastic for the pouch window. There are no metal or machined plastic parts to the device. The Cell Phone Arm Wonder Pouch assembly begins with a machine cut fabric pattern and a length of elastic fabric. The three pieces of the device; pouch, pouch window and elastic fabric are hand assembled and connected together by use of a sewing machine with a strong thread gauge.
