So I've been working on a new idea. By working on, I mean many prototypes, many trials and errors...
I almost went ahead and listed this one however the photos were not turning out too well. And you can always tell when I'm having a bad photo day...
Anyway, this is a cozy for an itouch sized gadget (ipod/larger phone/blackberry etc. etc.)
I have a 'test driver' (preteen) who thought I should put a pocket on it for earphones/earbuds.
We also debated on where to put the swivel hook...I've come up with this idea so that it can hang straight from a belt loop, purse handle and so forth.
Also, decided on velcro instead of a snap or magnet so the screen doesn't get damaged....
I was wondering if you could help me with a quick little "unofficial survey" before I get back to the machine and make piles of these, lol ; )
~Would you use the back pocket? Would you want the pocket on the front, under the velcro, or as is, on the back? We debated about that...
~Would you want a cozy with or without the swivel hook? Do you think it's handy or not necessary?
~Would a sleeve, sans pocket, velcro closure or swivel hook, work for you too? (essentially just a phone 'sleeve')
I do still want to do the usual granny/shabby/Japanese style of fabrics with notions and trims-the one above is a vintage lace trim- and buttons~ but I will be throwing in some other types of fabrics I have on hand too...Need to purge some of my stash!!
You can see more photos on my flickr page : )
Happy crafting, and thanks for stopping by : )
