Here's mine (and earlier ones if you'd like to see). I got the two leaves at the bottom a bit too big, but I don't care enough to rip them off and redo. I tried some decorative stitching across the background this time, and I like the way it looks. Plus it can't hurt that it also makes the felt sturdier. I have been using it inside my purse for a couple of days and I LOVE IT. Not having to dig for my phone is golden.
I'm working on making this available as a gadget cozy pattern. This size fits my phone, my husband's Blackberry and his iPod. Maybe a choice of two designs for the front, a larger and smaller size, an optional pocket in the back for those earbuds, and a button closure at the top. It would be make an easy and useful handmade gift to anyone who has gadgets to keep up with. Stay tuned.
I hope all the US citizens had a lovely and not laborious Labor Day. I'm getting that squirmy feeling that comes when the air and the light changes ever so slightly -- fall is coming. My favorite time of year! (Thanks, Kaye, I didn't know Canadians celebrate Labour Day on the same day as our Labor Day (minus the u)! Learn sump'n new every day.)
