About a month ago I got an iphone. It is such a snazzy, convenient little thing, I love that it can perform like a little computer - meaning I can reply to emails wherever I am and don't have to sit at the big screen for so long.
The problem is, though, that I couldn't find a cover that I liked. I didn't want some plain old plasticy case for it and decided that I would have to make myself one. But you know what those thoughts are like...thinking about making one and actually getting around to doing it are two different matters! It meant that for the first 2 weeks of owning my phone I didn't take it anywhere with me...it sat on the kitchen bench 24/7 because I was scared of scratching it in my bag!!
My lovely friend, Janelle must have read my mind - a few days later we were emailing back and forth about a few things and she suggested that we do a little swap: a set of my Citrus pOp hairpins for a CUSTOM-MADE iphone pouch. I didn't waste any time agreeing :) And I definitely think I got the best part of the bargain - she even let me choose my own fabric!
And here it is...
It is absolutely perfect and now my iphone travels everywhere with me. Thanks Janelle!!
P.S. If you want to make an iphone pouch for yourself, Janelle shares the pattern in her new book, Pieces of Me.
P.P.S. Nah, my photography skills haven't improved dramatically all of a sudden - these photos were taken by Janelle :)
