a little hand stitching
My first phone died a few weeks ago. I wasn’t very attached as I had only had it since last summer. I never even used the phone as we live in a deep mountain valley where there is no cell service. I am not very experienced with any form of technology and I typically own things without using them properly…like my SLR camera is really a point and shoot, and so
is was my phone. Last week, my husband bought me a new phone which is much fancier – and all the more intimidating, but I have learned how to take photos with it!
I take the phone with me to town and throw it in my purse, which is how I fear I contributed to the demise of the first phone. My fingers were twitching to do some needle work, so I quickly sewed up a little padded phone case. Sandwiched between layers of felt is a quilting pad, or whatever you call that puffy quilted fabric. There is no way I will be responsible for the death of phone number two from neglect or bouncing around with my keys in my purse. And I like pretty embroidery details, too. I chose this button from a little collection of antler buttons my youngest son made for Christmas. They are such a treasure…one of my favourite gifts I have received from him!
I have just five little embroidered bunnies left in the shop. They make great little Easter or Spring basket stuffers for little hands.
And now, I am taking phone number two to town in its pretty little case….I need to buy some more embroidery floss!
