I don't mean to brag, but I have many, many talents.
Somehow, I managed to break my cell phone. Well, I dropped it onto some cement, actually, and that did the trick. When I took it into the shop the lady said, "You broke THAT one? It's so tough we call it the bulletproof phone...."
See. Many talents. You may recall that I used the same talent on my camera, not too long ago, resulting in a lovely new Amy Butler Camera Case for added protection for its successor. So, when I got my brand new fancy pink cell- the best on the market for $0 and the cheapest monthly phone plan available- I figured that it, too, should get some extra lovin'. Plus, I bought the warranty :-)
I finally cut into a wee bit of the Heather Ross Far Far Away 2 that I am hoarding. Love these grey roses! The outside also sports a padded flap of one of my favorite Nicey Jane prints, and a happy yellow button :-) But the button is just eye candy... there are velcro tabs to close 'er up.
Inside, I used some scraps of some aqua minky..so, so soft. There is also some batting in there- yup, this phone should stay secure! Some little quilted lines on the flap:
The best part of making this cell phone cover is that I did it with my longtime best friend, Michele. She and I have instated a weekly craft night. She is a knitter, so tonight it was my turn to teach her the ropes sewing. This was a great small project for just that. She did a great job! Next meeting, she is teaching me how to knit my first hat to go with this scarf! Wish me luck!
Finished this up as part of the One Thing, One Week Challenge at Amy's Creative Side.
