valentine cozy



Had to replace the fraying silver purse with this new eggplant pleather (clearance, ka-ching) so of course it needed some valentiney goodness to complement it.

 


Gadget cozies are such instant gratification. It only took a few minutes to put together because I already had the stuff on hand and white thread was already loaded in my machine. This one I made with an elastic button closure so it could hang outside the purse and show off the phone love. I could also really use a hanging cozy just for kleenex inside my purse. I'm constantly digging for a tissue. Maybe next.

(This is an easy mod to my Gadget Cozy pattern. Substitute grosgrain ribbon for the bias binding loop and use graduated stacked hearts instead of the other appliques. Just sew the hearts up the middle and you're done.)

  1. Wonderful idea! I love instant gratification projects that turn out so beautiful. They are often just what you need to turn a ho-hum I am barely managing keeping it together mum day to a wow I made something day. Great post.
