In the end, it's all fine. My kids hate it. They hate the purse I made from this fabric too. I'm going to make a wallet soon; maybe I should use that fabric? LOL
At first, It felt like it was bigger than my old one. I think it's because I used canvas and a heavier vinyl. I can still use the touch screen through the vinyl. This was great on the cruise; it's wonderful in the summer when you go for a walk and don't have pockets. It's not waterproof but I'm sure the old one helped my phone a few times LOL.
