Hello everyone, I recently made some felt out of which I made a cover for my phone.

Well I've changed my phone and so now it doesn't fit. No problem I think, I'll sort it out. So when my order had arrived from Janet Humphrey it was the perfect time to make a new one to use while I alter the other.

I stumbled across Janet on Lin Brown's blog which I was reading at the weekend. Please check what Lin does it really is worth a visit. I'm looking forward to more of this style from Lin (please).

In the pack was calico so I cut it to the size I needed. This I laid out and on top, I placed pieces of material to fit. I sewed with a zigzag stitch across each piece as it meets another, forming a layer of patchwork. I guess you wouldn't normal make patch work this way but it suited me.

Once complete i embellished here and there with lace and bows etc. I then cut more material to form a back and stitched round 3 edges making sure right side to right were facing. I turned it inside out and poked out the corners. I formed the size of case I needed and using an embroidery stich sewed around the edge to form the case.

I really enjoyed making this case, it turned out far better than I imagined and I love it's shabby look. Think I'll be playing like this again soon. 

Any way bye for now, take care
