My creative space... Mollie Makes an iphone cosy.

Do you have your copy of Mollie Makes yet?
Issue 2 has just come out the UK and I am hankering for my local newsagent to get it in for me but he is right grump so I'm not counting on it!
Last months came with a most excellent wee envelope on the cover where you could make your own felt iphone cosy so of course I had to give it a go. My hand sewing leaves a lot to be desired and I must confess I had to sit and watch a blanket stitch tutorial on youtube before I could figure out what I was doing. I did manage to give my birdy a flappy wing which I thought was very clever of me.

Look how much it is enjoying sitting on the new Frankie!
If you head over to the Mollie Makes website you can actually access the templates to make your own cosy.

  4. Beautiful case. I made one fro my phone on the weekend till a "real" one comes in the mail. I totally got bagged out for it from other "un-crafters". Oh well

  5. You tube is SUCH a good source of tutorials. It really helped to both remind me how to knit and learn new stitches.
    Love your little bird by the way :-)


Welcome poppets! I'd love to hear what you have to say so please dont go without saying it!
