Handmade Monday - igadget cover

Well, what a week! Blogger is great until it goes pear shaped and for me it definitely went pear-shaped last week. Anyway I'm back now after my last 'grumpy old Hector' post (for those of you that don't know what I'm talking about) see here

So onto Handmade Monday, short but sweet I made a gadget holder for an iphone/pod. I got the pattern from Flossie Teacakes blog.

The eagled eyed amongst you will have spotted the CK fabric. I think it sits well next to the natural coloured linen. It just makes it pop somehow. The linen was a really good find. I'm going to be making curtains for a very lovely lady soon and she supplied me with swathes of gorgeous linen, which she bought from Ikea, so of course I just had to pay them a visit didn't I? This pouch is one of the things that I made.

It has a contrast lining (Remember that green gingham I bought from the market? I knew it would come in handy)

...... and a little tab

.........fastened with velcro

....... and a handy little pocket for earphones, receipts or credit cards.

I chose a very generic sentiment so that the pouch could be used for a phone or ipod.

In a moment of weakness I've decided to have a go at my first ever craft fair next weekend, so it's all hands to the pump or rather sewing machine at the moment.  Slightly scared, bit nervous but I know I'll learn alot from the experience (good and bad).

Why not pop over to Wendy at 1st unique gifts and look and see what the other fabulous crafters have been up to this week? I'll be back tomorrow with another gift set I made for a friends birthday.

Thanks for visiting
Happy Crafting
Edited to add: It appears I am unable to comment on other blogs at the moment. Please rest assured that I have visited and attempted to comment on all of your lovely posts, I can only hope that this is resolved quickly in the meantime I going to SCREAM!
