Phone cosy!



We have a new challenge over at CRAFTY RIBBONS and this week its
ANYTHING GOES with RIBBON

I got my crochet hook out and made a quick cover for my phone (I am only a beginner at crocheting so don't judge) which is usually covered in glitter, glue and anything else that is lying on my desk or handbag lol. I used the gorgeous new ribbons from the KNIT COLLECTION available HERE.
I hand stitched them round the top so you will see a sentiment back and front. Snug as a bug!

The prize this week is

 So if you win you will have a hard time choosing from the fabulous selection but you will love them!!

Gerat idea to keep your phone clean and cosy Pinky. Wouldn't do for me though. I have enough trouble getting to answer it in time without having to take it out of it's sleeping bag.lol

How lovely to see something so different Pinky. I used to be able to crochet years ago, you got me wondering if I still can.

Hi Pinky - this looks a lovely cover and I think the ribbon round the top is a great finishing touch. Nice sentiments too. I can't crochet (it's the only craft I've attempted & failed at!) so I only admire anyone who can! Thanks for sharing your project at Incy Wincy Designs this week in our "Anything But A Card" challenge.

Ooooo Pinky I really like this a lot, I think you have done a brilliant job, I have got myself a hook and some wool and I am going to try and crochet my own flowers, I used to do crochet many years ago but I have to follow a beginners tutorial, lol.
