A last little bit of iPhone love

"Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern; it will come out a rose by and by. Life is like that - one stitch at a time taken patiently, and the pattern will come out all right, like the embroidery."
-Oliver Wendell Holmes

I'm sorry that my life is so boring that I have to write three blog posts about the same topic; I'm hoping this is the last news about my iPhone for awhile. But I just had to share my craftiness.
Yesterday I spent the afternoon outside on my patio listening to Pandora (wonderful website and iPhone app!) while I embroidered a little telephone on a scrap of turquoise fabric. I've kind of taught myself how to embroider, so I'm probably not doing it 100% correctly, but I'm tickled that it came out so well. I finished up just as the mosquitoes started biting, and I was forced to move my "sweatshop" inside.Then inspired by these gadget covers I found on etsy: here and here and motivated by my first go at it (and failure!) the day before, I set out to make an additional cover for my phone--a little more protection for when it's bumping around in my purse. It was a little bit of guess and check as I estimated seam allowances and top stitching, but what a relief when the phone slid in snugly after I finished my last seam.


  1. That is so cute!!! I love it!!! The embroidery looks great and so is the pattern!

  2. who cares if you're embroidery isn't correct? it looks awesome! and i have no clue if you're doing it right, for the record. :)
