I made a foundation paper pieced bee and made it into a hexagon pouch. The zipper is a little wonky because it meets at a corner, but generally it was pretty successful. I really love foundation paper piecing, there are so many fun patterns!
A few months ago I saw a Kickstarter campaign to make a Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding museum in a Brooklyn apartment. I threw them $5 and jokingly tweeted asking if they were taking submissions. She sent me a message back and said they definitely wanted some cross stitches. My husband designed them and I got to stitching.
They started out as a joke but quickly turned into the most glorious thing I've ever made.
Can I ask where you found the iPhone 6 sized case? I've been looking for one with no luck - I also had the 5s and upgraded just after I ahad finished my x-stitch case so would love to have a new one for my larger phone.
I got it from the Etsy shop FabFabLLC. The one I had for my 5S was from PurlSoho and was definitely a lot sturdier and nicer quality, but this one was pretty nice.
