Hello! I hope everyone (in America) had a great...and safe...holiday weekend! To those not in the USA, I hope you had a great weekend, too! I can tell you that my dog is glad the fireworks are over. He has been petrified since July 1st! He's finally able to come out from his hiding place under the bed and resume his domination over the cat. Go get her Wallace!
I accomplished a few sewing related things over the extended weekend. First, I finished the third, or is it the fourth, cell phone case? I have been tweaking the design since the first one I made was completely unpractical for me. My final (I hope) design is the same size, but instead of batting, I used two layers of flannel. I tried one layer and found this too light weight. For this final design, I also slipped a piece a stencil plastic in between the layers on the backside in order to stiffen this part of the case. I used Velcro and sewed both pieces on with invisible thread. The button is for decorative purposes only. It serves no function. I've given the case to a friend who has the same phone as me. She has been tasked to carry her phone in this case and report back its practicality, etc. What do you think? Oh, this time I got the birds going the "right" direction.
I'm very pleased with this bag. I might have to keep this one for myself!
Have you noticed my favicon? That's the little image that appears in your open tab or toolbar when you are on a site that has its own unique icon. Mine is a shrunken version of my profile image. As I have stated numerous times, I am not a super techno savvy mama. This favicon was a HUGE accomplishment for me. I have been working on it for days. Last night when I clicked and finally saw the image, I nearly jumped out of bed! I felt like I had won the lotto or something! Now that I am an expert, I am willing to help any of you who would like their own favicon for their site. Send me an email and I will let you know how I made mine!
Toodles for now!
