Oh my deer

I'm very excited at the moment because I got a brand new phone the other day.  Very thrilling.  I also thought I'd use that as a good excuse to make myself a new phone case.



I've be thinking of making one for a while anyway.  I do love my old one, but it is getting a bit worse for wear now after being carted around everywhere with me.   Add to that the fact that the new phone is slightly longer and the reasons for me to go stash diving and see what I could find where starting to stack up nicely.


A pleasant peruse later, and I had some pretties to work with.  Don't you just love these little projects, they are such a joy to work on.  No endless cutting in preparation, no worries about manoeuvring things through the sewing machine, no daunting calculations.  It's just easy and fun.

I'm even using the new phone to Instagram (sandracherryrt) while I make.  Get a load of me being all modern and actually using my phone for something other than the odd text.  If this goes on, I might even end up making a phone call with it one of these days.  



I think patchwork squares are amongst my favourite things.  I must do a whole quilt full one day, and then hand quilt it.... yep, one day, some day.  Back to the phone case though and I had the most fun getting this little deer chappie sorted out.  I love messing around with these little details and I think he came out quite cute in the end...

Cute patchwork squares and cute little chicks and deers, I might give myself a tooth ache with this one, it's just so dang sweet!




But now I'm doubly excited.  A new phone to play with and a cute new case to carry it around in.

  12. It's just gorgeous!

    I'm desperate to have a go at some simple patchwork (so inspired by both your makes and Nana Company) and, funnily enough, had decided on a little phone case as a starter. Eeep.

  13. Oh Sandra I did chuckle - I am just the same with modern technology (though come on, we both put up pretty good blog posts with PICTURES, we can't be that much like Luddites!)

    My grandaughter taught me to text, and I learn every new 'bit' agonizingly slowly. My iphone birthday present is lovely but I know I don't utilise it properly. Mind you, I can now VIBER my son and his family FOR FREE in New Zealand...get the app, kiddo, get the app!
    I love your patchwork case. I don't need one but am so tempted to make one because it is so scrummy! Lx
