Making Mobile Phone Cosies - Stage 3
This is the second piece of quilting, now transformed into a mobile phone cosy. This is the slightly more sophisticated version, fastened with a button and loop.
I sewed on the button before doing the side seams - it would have been tricky getting the needle through to the inside otherwise.
The loop is sewn firmly in place with a rectangle of machine stitching with crossing diagonals.
Here are the two finished cosies side by side. Although they are made from the same quilted rectangle, the effect is different because I used them the opposite way round, so each one has a different part showing on top for the flap.
My daughter's verdict is that they are a bit wide and square shaped. So what, said I. It all depends on the size of the mobile phone. This one has room for her mobile phone and lipstick.
This post is linked to Barbara's blog at Cat Patches so you can see projects lots of other people have started in March... plenty of inspiration there!

I like this idea. I might have to give this a try.ReplyDelete
You will enjoy making these, Barbara. Quick and easy, and a great way to use up scraps.Delete
Nice job! I love the cool restful green on green fabric and binding. The variegated thread is a really nice touch.
Looking forward to seeing your version on your blog...
Lovely, you know, you could probably slide your id in there, too, for a night at the pub and the whole thing would fit in a coat pocket!ReplyDelete
How did you guess? I've been trying to get chucked out of the pub for under-age drinking, but the landlord won't co-operate seeing as I'm old enough to be his mother.
I printed off your tute, Muv. Love this idea. Thanks for linking up!ReplyDelete
