Amazingly not that much later, a finished phone case, as a gift for Dot:
Thanks to Michelle at Keykalou.etsy.com 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!
