Felt handphone pouch & charm

I made my first felt handphone pouch and charm recently. click on images to enlarge


I spent quite a bit of time getting this pouch right - the biggest headache were the measurements. This pouch is made up of 4 separate pieces and their measurements must be quite accurate for it to look nice when sewn together.



I originally intended to make this handphone charm as a "flat" piece. Halfway into sewing the sides of the flower together, I decided to add some stuffing and it turned into a plushie. *grin*

What do you think of my first attempts, eh?

I knew you would come up with something new soon! :D

I like the handphone pouch & charm, really cute. The colors look very "spring time" IMO. :)

Oh I like it! Those are such cheerful colors. Question: does the pouch have a strap or something so it can be worn on a belt or a bag strap?

Jace said...

Taja:: Glad you like them. :) No, I didn't change any setting - I hope this prob doesn't persist. If it does, please let me know.

Brandy:: Awwww ... thanks. :D

Azteclady:: I made this first pouch without any straps because I personally don't like straps. ;) However, subsequent pouches can be fitted with straps according to the recipients' preference.

Wow, Jace, you have been busy. Took me a while to get here. I got lost at Etsy. I particularly love the Bible cover for your Mom. Miss you on your other blog. Take care.

Frances:: So nice to see you here! :D Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I've been making things almost every day ... you can say I'm in the "crafting zone" right now. I hadn't read a single book since end-March!

Grace:: I realized these are your fave colours too as I was making them. :D Don't worry about the pouch you made for me-lah ... I'm sure I'll like anything you've make. :) You're too modest. :)

Jace, I looked around a bit and it seems like it's a WordPress/OpenID issue. I'll stick with my old blogger account (good I kept it!) or Name/URL from now on to be safe.

Thanks. :)

That charm is adorable. For a first attempt, I can only say o_O (translated into wow). I'm actually a bit jealous of your divine crafty abilities.

J,
They are so pretty!
I love the one with the dragonfly, It makes me think of sitting in the shade at the edge of a cool lake on a hot summer-day.
