Hope everyone is having a great day today, and if you are working on a project, I hope you are having a great time piecing it together 🙂
Today I decided that I was tired of carrying my phone in my pocket or throwing it loose in my purse. It is still in great shape as of right now, but I am nervous that the next time it may not always get away scratch free! So this is the quick solution and stash buster that I quickly got done up! I looked online and found a few patterns (mostly sized for Apple phones) that had to be purchased. Well I recently just bought a few pattern and knew that Jay would shake his head if I were to buy one for something so small and could probably sit and figure out myself! So I started cutting and measuring by eye and here is what I had come up with!
On a funny side note, I noticed how I have become much closer friends with my iron and interfacing! See, I admit when I first started sewing, I preferred quick projects that used little supplies and took as little time as possible! Now I enjoy taking on bigger projects, or ensuring that my smaller projects turn out much nicer than they used too! Interfacing really does help to make a project look nicely done, even if it is just a little phone case. Pressing your pieces will help them from bulking up and also give a nice clean finished look! These two small steps will also help make stitching in a straight line much easier! The interfacing adds enough weight so your outer and lining material isn’t slipping as much! Pinning also has become a much easier habit! Lots of neat little tricks to make any project just a little easier and helps set you up for success!!
Well thank you for stopping in again or perhaps even for your first time! I must admit I am finding it much easier to do my blogging now! Even if it is just to have a virtual space to document my own journey in making silly little items! I used to cringe after re-reading my posts! Now, since I have visited ‘The Thinking Closet’ and read a really well written advice piece by Lauren on blogging tips, I am still working on changing a few bad habits (obviously not being less wordy yet haha sorry guys). It’s been much easier– drafting is becoming a very familiar territory!
Anywho, our lives must go on, so I bid you farewell for now! If you have any tips for beginner sewers ie: trial and errors or new habits you have incorporated I would love to hear in the comments!
Stay Silly my friends
