My Sewing: on an iPhone Case!
Hurrah! It's some of my patchwork on an iPhone cover! I decided to join my friend, Christine, on Society6, offering up some of my work ready to be made into cards, prints or, most excitingly, iPhone and Samsung Galaxy cases. I've done this for no other real reason than for the happiness of seeing fabrics I love, or things I've enjoyed making so much, in some kind of 3D format.
The thing that delights me most is seeing the sides of the cases...they look so proper and grown up and like an actual, real iPhone case!
Here's some of my Liberty stash sampled on a cover...
The paper pieced wall hanging I made for my parents from Oakshotts:
I currently have fourteen case designs on Society6.
Shockingly, Nell, who is neither fabric nor something I've sewn, appears in there too. After my daughter spent some time trying to find a case with a dog on it, but feeling that none of them were quite as cute as her own dog, she asked me to include some of Nell and let her choose one as a birthday gift to use on the phone she's recently inherited from her father. This is the one she chose.
If you're interested in buying an iPhone cover for yourself, you can find mine here or you can look through the absolutely huge (really huge and completely wonderful!) selection on offer and lose yourself on there, as I did, for an hour or two.
It's an American company, but if you order a certain amount (I think one iPhone case and a t-shirt would probably do it) then the postage to the UK is completely free!
Speaking of the dawg...I posted this photo on Instagram over the weekend (after I'd sent it to my husband with the words: look what you've done to me!). Unbelievably, I found myself trying on a jumper with a picture of a dog on it. I didn't see that coming at all. Nell is increasingly turning me into someone who actively likes dogs...and worse, a person who looks at a jumper with a picture of a dog on it and thinks 'Oh, how cute! I would totally wear that!' (especially curious when I don't own a single item of clothing with a picture on it!). Which leaves me with the question of whether it is a little denim-on-denim to wear a jumper with a picture of a dog on it when you're in the same room as a dog? Or worse, out walking the dog? You can answer frankly. I did not buy the jumper.
I especially like the fabric stacks covers. And well, your dog really is cute. Matchy matchy must be fine in that case.ReplyDelete
I predicted your conversion to someone who "actively likes dogs" but I didn't see that wardrobe experiment coming LOL!ReplyDelete
I believe few could have predicted that.Delete
Wow, cool cases!ReplyDelete
Wow, these look so cool! How amazing! I can't get over how cute Nell is... I'm not surprised that you're smitten!ReplyDelete
Neither can I! And thank you for the case love - so much fun.Delete
Those are gorgeous cases! I love the close up of the prints :)ReplyDelete
(p.s. I sent you an email on 29th August about advertising, but I'm guessing you didn't receive it, maybe it went into your junk folder?)
I'm so sorry, Samantha - I'd missed it - I've emailed you now though!Delete
You can go one better than a picture of a dog, Florence: http://www.amazon.com/Knitting-With-Dog-Hair-Sweater/dp/0312152906 [sending you this link has caused me to do an out-loud evil cackle]ReplyDelete
(read the reviews as well - the top one is not to be missed!)Delete
But 34 near-glowing reviews! Worryingly, there's clearly a market for it. However, Nell sheds so plentifully that I now feel slightly lazy throwing it in the bin or hoovering it up...Delete
So when my kids suggested I buy a jumper with a raccoon on it, that might have been a coded pet request? My head is swimming. Thankfully I said no.ReplyDelete
Well done, Ali! I wonder why they specifically thought of their mother wearing a racoon though - why not themselves, I wonder?Delete
I love the phone covers! I need one!ReplyDelete
I love your iphone covers, Liberty, patchwork fabrics - perfect!ReplyDelete
You have made me laugh. Definitely a little denim on denim I think. But you may be adorable enough to pull it off.ReplyDelete
That's incredibly sweet of you! Thank you! xDelete
How exciting for you! They look amazing and make me wish I had an Iphone!!ReplyDelete
What a jazzy jumper! And, it is totally denim on denim... but wait until you are such a dog persona that you have dog teatowels, dog car stickers (oh yes!) and perhaps a house number plate with a winsome picture of a dog on it to one side... the future's doggy! Lovely phone cases by the way.ReplyDelete
No. Just no.Delete
I would smile if you report in January that one of your Christmas gifts was indeed a dog house number plate!!! :)Delete
The phone covers are lovely, you must be thrilled with them! Nell is super cute, how could anyone resist? I have a Golden Retriever boy and he is my baby!! (but maybe I'm just daft!)ReplyDelete
Not daft at all. I wonder if he is as excitable as Nell? I dream of the time when she becomes an oasis of doggy calm.ReplyDelete
