so my friend Kelly loses her cell phone more than anyone i've ever known.  it seems like at least once every 3 months something is happening to her phone.  her birthday was thursday, so i decided to make her a cell phone cozy.  i'm hoping this will help her keep track of it better, and not that i end up having to make 12 more.   Tongue
i decided to make it a monster so that people will be scared away and not want to steal it.   Wink
i used cotton yarn because it seemed more sturdy to me and this tutorial here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=41857.0 as a guide.
on to the pictures!

you can't tell, but its eyes are blue


i made a loop so it can be attatched to a belt loop or to the strap of a bag. 


with my cell phone inside.  i dunno how my phone ended up fitting so perfectly.  i used my dad's phone as a guide because his is more like my friend's. 


just another front shot.

my friend loved it.  i meant to get a picture of her with it, but i forgot.   Undecided  maybe i can next time we hang out (if she hasn't lost it by then  Cheesy).

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
