Cat Phone Case

What do you do when your son asks for a new phone case that looks like a cat?  You make one, of course.  Since I had already made one for myself, I ‘kind of’ knew what to do.

Here’s all the pieces from left to right.

  1. Pattern cut from Do Sew.
  2. Shiny red for the lining.
  3. Black batik for the outside.
  4. Iron-on fleece to keep the red still.
  5. Iron-on interfacing for the black.
  6. That stiff stuff to protect the phone.
  7. Little pieces of fabric for a tail, eyes and nose.

Here I have machine appliqued the pieces and added whiskers using a double stitch.  I love my machine.  The tiny bit of hand sewing I do anymore is embarrassing.  Sorry Nanny.  You were the best.

My son was very happy with it.  He said something about feet.  I told him, since he now knew how to hand embroider, he could make four little sets of pads on the underside all by himself.  He said, “Yeah.  I guess you’re right.”  I could see the little wheels turning in his head.

These things are a real bitch to make so don’t even about asking me to make another one.
