Phone Case with pocket

Hi All,

Happy Monday!  I’ve been working on a couple of things besides trying to figure how to sew on my new used Mega Quilter.  I’m kind of frugal. Ok, I am frugal and I hate wasting fabric and batting to practice. So I had a square I made for a quilt along that I quit following along and thought I would quilt it on my new machine.

It wasn’t an easy task.  Those big frames are not made for quilting something small. I couldn’t grab the sides and I struggled but it looks good enough to sew together into a pillow.  Below is the back of the pillow.

I have since sewed together an applique throw and starting quilting it but it is awful and although I won’t use it as a throw I will use it for practice.  I just watched another CreativeBug class and will practice what I’ve learned on my new applique practice piece.

I learned some great new designs on CreativeBug.  Have you looked at CreativeBug yet?  If not, you should.  You can look here.  I like Craftsy too and have taken several classes but the last two classes I took were repetitive of others I had taken and at $20 a shot, it is simply too much for me to pay.  CreativeBug is $9.99 a month but you can cancel at anytime plus they offer a free two week trial and that gives you access to every class they have. Right now they are also having a sale that you can get a whole year of CreativeBug for only $50.00.  Craftsy constantly freezes on me too and I have to refresh, start and the beginning and try to find my place again. I have watched 6 CreativeBug classes to date and not once did the video freeze. I’m a new big fan.

On to my other new project.  It is a new phone case with zipper for some money or a card.  You could add a side strap and make it a wristlet but I’m going to make this one to hang around my neck with a loop to connect to a lanyard.  I always carry a wristlet except when I take a walk and when I walk I like to be hands free. I didn’t sew the loop on yet but I’ll show you when I’m done.

I also  drew up and saved my pattern and will be posting it free for anyone to try. I took it to work today to copy and save but it is Monday and Mondays are so busy at work, I didn’t get around to copying the pattern.  In a day or two, I’ll  have it available for you so check back.

If you missed the Giveaway List this weekend, be sure to check now. I find new giveaways daily. You can see the list here or at the top of the page.

See you next time.

    Love the phone case and can’t wait for the pattern. Thank you so much for sharing that.
    I too do not like wasting fabric. Scraps I’ve found are my best tool for small projects like this.
    Sewleil in your Day,

  2. This looks great. I want to make one! I look forward to the pattern.

    Also, do you archive previous giveaways? I could only find the current list.There’s a company with a give away from a couple of weeks ago I didn’t bookmark because I was on someone else’s computer and wanted to go to their website today but couldn’t remember it.

    • I do not archive them but wordpress saves previous versions until I delete them. Do you remember what the giveaway was for? If so, let me know and maybe I can find it. I will try to find it at least.

  3. Thank you. No, I don’t remember. I was thinking I’d recognize it if I read through them again! Oh, well, I’m sure to run across it again on your site. I’ll know it when I see it! lol

    • The link is on the post page but people are missing it there. I’ll email you a copy. Check your email. Happy Tuesday to you.
