Not much sewing time lately. Last weekend was busy with choir programs and outings with children from church.
About a week ago I saw the cutest phone cover online and managed to find time to cut out and stitch up some. Especially useful since I finally bought a new phone.
The coffee cozy is made from one slice from a batik layer cake.
The pieced phone covers make use of very small bits of fabric-one and a half inch pieces.
The fronts of the phone covers with button closing above.
The backs are below.
The batik phone cover uses two slices of layer cake fabric. It is very quick to make even adding free motion quilting.
The best find of the week? The buttons. I went to the big fabric store looking for buttons. Found some Art Deco style that I really liked marked down to $2 for two. Had to have them even at a dollar per button. Surprise! They were only 40 cents for two. What a great deal. I had to go back and get more at that price. Look for more coffee cozies and phone covers so I can use my bargain buttons.
