My hubby got me an awesome new phone for my birthday  Kiss

A fantastic new communicator deserves a fantastic new home! So I made one Smiley

My sewing machine is in for repairs, so the whole thing was made by hand (no pattern required, just made to fit the phone). It is made of silk, with a felt lining. It was such a pleasant small project to stitch while watching my Next Generation DVDs. I am very pleased with it.



It has velcro dots for closure (stitched down for security). I used fusible web for the applique, but because it will be handled a lot, I also stitched it all down (just with sewing thread), and couched perle cotton around the silver part. I also tried out cutting the lining a smidge (4mm) smaller than the fabric, and stitching the edges with raw edges lined up (need to ease carefully around the curves). This way you get the lining sitting perfectly just inside the edge - it worked a treat!!
