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.
