I'm a day late, but (not to toot my own horn or anything) I'm pretty pleased with this week's project - a phone case for all the other mobile device users out there (yep, that's right folks...there are gadgets made by companies other than Apple).
It was Neal's idea to make a phone cozy for his T-Mobile G1 (a bit longer and significantly chunkier than the iPhone), complete with a little green felt Android Robot stitched onto an accessory pocket on the front. The example shown here and listed in my shop is actually the second version I made, not totally satisfied with the original prototype, which is now in the care of a certain 15 month old.
I used embroidered French knots for the eyes, of course, and learned the lovely blanket stitch for the edge.
Here's a shot of the cozy, in action:
Why is making cute (and occasinally, though not in this case, edible) stuff with felt and thread so satisfying? It's a mystery I continue to try to unravel...
