I was super motivated about sewing this morning! Ok, I may be avoiding paying bills and running last-minute errands before we leave for Charleston…
Anywho…after reading yesterday’s post about my little dreidel pouch, my Mom asked me if I could make her one for her cell phone. The one I made yesterday is WAY too small for her phone (coincidentally, the same as my phone) and it had a zipper. The phone has a giant touch screen and zipper + screen = scratchy yuckiness. So, I looked around for a tute.
I found this one on Sew Mama Sew and went to work! My mother and I both adore the ocean and I recently acquired some really adorable ocean creature fabric. I wasn’t sure when I was going to use it, but I knew it was going to be for her! Sometimes I just impress myself 🙂 The outside is denim and the inside is the oceanic fabric. The top corner of the flap features a pod of dolphins swimming…so sweet!
I also made one out of Amy Butler scraps that I had hanging around. Actually, I made this one first, to work out all the kinks before I made Mom’s! I left the elastic and button off of mine because I couldn’t find a button I liked with it!
I really love the way they turned out. Not bad for a quickie project I wasn’t planning!
Now, I need to add hitting the post office to my list of errands I ignored this morning in order to make this little cutie!
