One of my husband's co-workers asked me to make her a cell phone cover.  Sure, I can do it; I can do anything! (famous last words)
Well, four days and five attempts later, this is the result...

The matching thing behind it is an eye pillow.
Well, the good news is I have a lot of fancy puppets for my 18 month old to play with!

The sleeve thing is only 1/4 inch wide and getting the seams straight and corners even was killing me!  I had to get the fitting just right so it stayed on, but was easy to put on and take off.  Plus, every time I pulled a seam out the fabric unraveled like crazy even when I zig-zagged the edges.  I'm a perfectionist, what can I say?

Not really, I've made them for other people, and only one person said it tickles.  It's Paton's Cha Cha; it's really soft!
