Cell Phone Pouch

I made one last little thing out of Jess's new Holding Pattern barkcloth. It was very quick to sew, and I made it in a day. Jess had suggested making a cell phone pouch, and since we couldn't find a pattern that was quite what she had in mind, we made one up. She got the measurements from one she already had, made a prototype herself, and then sent me the dimensions. Here's how mine ended up. (And please don't ask for a tutorial. I don't do them. I'm lazy like that.)

It's not a snug fit for a phone. There's room for car keys, a chapstick, change, or whatever you want to take along for a quick trip 'out'. Exactly what Jess wanted.

Soooo.... below is what got shipped to Cloud9 to take to Quilt Market in Houston this week.

I have to give UPS credit. Cloud9 sent me a Next Day Air shipping label, and I dropped off the package at our local UPS after 5:00 p.m. on Monday. It was delivered to them in New Jersey before 9:00 a.m. the next morning! Amazing!

Wow - blog posts 3 days in a row for me. That's kind of amazing, too, isn't it?! Do I get some kind of a prize??? :)

You definitely deserve a prize!

I love the print on the largest bag, so pretty! I'm excited for when these fabrics come out.

Grandma G said...

Thanks, Emily! So far no prize has shown up yet. LOL

I hope you're stocked up on patience, because these fabrics aren't scheduled to be released until July. Yeah... bummer.

Here is your prize!


That pouch super cute, nice (and very fast!) work.

Now, are you sure you don't want to make a pattern? You already have a pattern tester over here. :D

Geneviève Thiffault said...

Oh no! I'm not good with tags!


Geneviève Thiffault said...

Screw this tag thing, I can't get it to work.

Grandma G said...

Thanks, Geneviève! For the kind words, for the prize (just what I need - ha!), and for the giggles. 😉😂

No pattern. But you could easily do your own. Let me know if you want the dimensions.

Can you give us the dimensions for that cell phone pouch? It's really adorable!

Grandma G said...

Thank you, Regina! Do you mean the finished dimensions or the fabric dimensions? I'm going to have to do a little digging......
