1  cell phone bag in Completed Projects by rumble_pie on: February 21, 2006 05:30:53 PM
hello friends!  i haven't posted anything in a long while so it is with great pleasure that i present you with my new celly bag:

i will now cut 'n' paste what i wrote about it on my flickr page here.  (who doesn't like a good shortcut?  Smiley ):


In between practicing the dance from Napolean Dynamite, I crafted this wee cell phone bag. I've been wanting one for a while - my phone's always buried at the bottom of all my crap - colored pencils and cameras and notebooks and snotty tissues and what-have-you. Now it has it's own easy-access proper home. The strap is heavy-duty velcro'd so it can be moved from one bag to another. And the price was right - 100% free, 'cause I happened to have all the materials around.

They are:
- busted pair of jeans (I hoard them to be harvested for stuff like this)
- orange embroidery floss; turquoise for the inside (because I ran outta the orange - but I dig how it looks)
- velcro, salavaged from another project gone awry (I had just enough to finish this - it holds the flap closed and attaches the strap to the back)
- E-6000 glue (top notch, in my experience, for heavy-duty stuff like velcro you'll open and close a lot -- but watch those fumes, they creep up on ya!)
- Yu-Gi-Oh! shoelaces from Payless -- got 'em a while back, knew they'd come in handy someday! I love how they worked on this.
- Sobo glue (to attach trim to front and back) - could've used E-6000, but felt like the fumes were starting to affect my genes. : )
- clear nail polish (for sealing the edges of the denim to prevent them from eventually unravelling)
- random button (it's purely decorative, gives some "finish" to the end of the trim there)

There was an attempted break-in to our apartment this past weekend.  No one was hurt and nothing was taken (except a package from a friend left in the hallway - annoying, but replaceable) - we weren't home, and the dead-bolt saved the day.  But they mangled the hell out of our door, and the whole thing left me feeling shaken with an aftertaste of bummed out.

Isn't it amazing how crafting stuff makes you feel better??

Hope you like the bag, and hope all's well where you are!

Good vibes from Brooklyn  Kiss

p.s.  maybe i'm a lameass and i just didn't see it in the profile options, but if somebody wanted to share how to change my icon pic, that'd be great...thanks!
