Homemade iPhone Case

February 27, 2014 in Competition, Crafts, Homemade Thursday, Thrifty

First things first, until October I hadn’t touched a sewing machine since I was 12. That was in school where we all made cushions. I couldn’t begin to tell you the first thing about a sewing machine or how to use it, but I’ve been (slowly) teaching myself.

Last month I got a new phone (the iPhone 5C which I totally love). I was looking online at pouches and covers but everything was so expensive! So I went through my Pinterest boards and found a tutorial for an iPhone pouch…and made it!

It’s really not perfect at all, the off centre button does annoy me a bit, but I really love it…and I MADE IT!

If you fancy having a go at this yourself I got the tutorial over on the During Quiet Time blog. There is a pdf copy of the tutorial and the pattern available here. If I can do it, so can you! 🙂

While I’m here talking about sewing I thought I’d share a fab comp with you. Hillarys Blinds have a competition running for creative bloggers. Basically you sign up and chose one of their four Country Retreat fabrics. They will then send you out a 100cm x 100cm piece for you to use to create your own craft. You then have to blog about it and send the link over to them. All posts will be judged and the winner will win £1000!!! Definitely worth a shot. As far as I can see you have until Monday 17th March to request your fabric sample, and until 31st March 2014 to get your blog post published. I’d love to know if you give it a go so I can go and peek at your blogging entries. Good luck!

I’m linking up today’s post with Homemade Thursday over on White Lily Green. Why not pop over and see what other homemade treats bloggers have been up to this week.
