I made the case similar to the previous phone bag but this time I made one side long enough to be a flap. It took several attempts to get the engineering just right but I did it! The bag uses coordinating fabrics and I still need to put the button on the front but I really wanted to show it to you! I also quilted this bag for more texture.
Then I found this beautiful printed canvas duck cloth today. (OK - I found 3 different patterns which had to come home with me :-D ) I really wanted to highlight these beautiful medallions so centering the design was considered for this one. I also found I didn't really have a suitable fabric for lining the bag, or so I thought. But I remembered that I had some ultrasuede in my beading stash (for bead embroidery) and it turns out I had a great color to use for the lining. (See Rule #5 !) The ultrasuede sewed like a dream!
The colors here are too washed out. The bias tape is a beautiful creamy color which adds a little zip to the back of the bag. This bag is sized to hold a blackberry. My LG Optimus is a little small for this one.
Now for the exciting part! I have decided to have my first giveaway! If you read my other blog, you know that I want to name my sewing machine. So for the contest, leave a comment suggesting a name for the Singer . Comments must be posted by midnight (CDT) Saturday night (July 30, 2011). Then on Sunday, I will use a random number generator to select a winner! The prize will be a sewn bag! I'm so excited to offer this!
