A Case for You?

Do you remember these little cuties?  I made one for me and then one for my Sis late last year.  

Well, when I raised the question of which tutorials you'd most like to see on my blog, or Votes for Patterns as I called it, this little Phone Case was pretty high on the list.

I know I haven't mentioned Votes for Patterns for a while now, but I've been working away behind the scenes and have had a little tutorial prepared for these cases for a little while now.

This is only my second sewing tutorial so I hope it's clear enough to follow.  As ever, let me know if you get stuck anywhere on this and I shall try to help if I can.  But be gentle, I'm still learning!

    I’ve just been nominated for the Super Sweet Blogging Award by Gray over at www.graycrochet.wordpress.com and to say I am a little surprised is an understatement!!! Thank you Gray...thank you so so much...it is extremely flattering and such a confidence boost when you've just started a blog :)) and I cannot say thank you enough!!!!

    It took me a lot of umming and ahhing to decide whether I should start up my own blog. I'm sure you can understand where I'm coming from.....I have loved and learnt so much and continue to love and learn so much from other blogs about the things I love to do...crochet, sew, craft....I only wish I had more time to do these things. So to finally decide that maybe someone else may be inspired to pick up some yarn or get out their sewing machine, after reading my blog...well, you couldn't really ask for more! this is what happened to me. I started reading my first blog....Lucy @ Attic24, after a dear friend taught me my first crochet basics just over a year ago. Lucy is pretty infamous, but I have learnt a great deal from reading her posts and wonderful tutorials. I am only just getting started but have more and more confidence every day. So, here's to all those wonderful teachers and tutors of all things creative....ThAnKyOu.....ThAnKyOu
