April 3, 2012

my phone pouch
I made a case for my cell phone today. It came out perfect (which completely surprised me, because the measurements have to be precise for the phone to fit and come out of the case). I followed this awesome tutorial except for one little part – there’s a part where she says “Don’t forget the tab!” Apparently I misread it the first time because I skipped the “don’t” and forgot the tab. Oh well, my new seam ripper needed a workout anyway.

Blessings:

1. I finished work before 3pm! That means I had time to catch up some half-done sewing projects, and I even had time to cook dinner!

2. Craft projects! In addition to my custom cell phone case, I also made my first item with a zipper. I felt very relieved when I finished it and it actually worked as it should.

3. Good conversations with my husband. We’ve had several deep, engaging conversations lately. I love communication!

4. The boys’ baseball is really getting going. The younger boys had their first practice tonight, and we’re only a couple weeks away from opening day. I always look forward to baseball picnics!

5. Kind words from people. I’m not truly a “words of affirmation” kind of person. They actually make me uncomfortable, but it’s still nice to know the good things that people think of me. (They don’t have to share the bad stuff.) Smile

Both projects look great! The phone case is cute! And I always get excited too when a zipper turns out and works properly :)
