And here it is...

Amazingly not that much later, a finished phone case, as a gift for Dot:

Thanks to Michelle at for the pattern (I adapted this one to make the glasses case, too!).

And the glasses case for my lovely M-I-L, to keep on the outside of her handbag.  Apparently she gets sick of rummaging round in her bag for the existing one, so I invented this - it's just a variation on an old idea, but she can hook it onto her handbag strap & it won't be going anywhere!  I also padded it with some quilt batting, and  next time I'll know to cut that a bit smaller.  Quite a bit of work with the stuffing tools was required to get it all inside itself at the end!

The glasses case was just 2 pieces of focus & lining fabric, 4" X 7.5", or 10cm X 19cm  & two pieces of batting a bit smaller, stitched into the lining, to make it good for glasses.  I also interfaced both focus & lining, which I probably wouldn't do next time I make one of these, because the friction between the interfacing & the batting makes it hard to get the stuffing to sit still.  If I could find a supplier of fusible batting, I'd get some of that!

Hope she likes it!
