Back to sewing....

I needed a new mobile phone/ purse so I found out a few patterns but in my wisdom I decided I could make it easier in my own! Four attempts later I am happy with the finished item! The photo above is my 3rd attempt!
I added a few finishing touches, a button to close it and a strap on the back so I can clip it to my jeans when I am walking the dogs.
This is my final attempt, the first few turned out too bulky so I used wadding on one side and interfacing to strenghten the fabric on the front. I also shaped the closing flap to make it look more pleasing!

 Here are the finished items, I think my sister may get one for Christmas!

They all look wonderful to me and the fabric is fab. I say lucky sister.

I do too! You are very clever Jo :D (still got to make a start on my squares although the fabric is washed and ironed!) x

Love these and the fabric is gorgeous, just my type. I've now managed to 'do' three blocks, but I must confess I've had some help from Lynne, lol. See you soon :-)) xx
