I know I’m going to have to make more of these.
Oooohhh…great gift-making is in the works! Cell Phone Catty will make a great Christmas present for my daughter and quite a few other people.
I was surprised at how easy it was to make this pattern. The directions are very well written, but it is important to read them ALL the way through before beginning.
A sewing machine with zig-zag capability is recommended but not required (you can do all straight stitching if you want).
One thing I did differently from the pattern — I did not use sew-in Velcro. I used the new Fusion Velcro (that is a permanent fusible). Good stuff! Sew Thankful does not have it in stock yet, but should very soon.
Another thing I think will be helpful — next time I’m going to use Quilter’s Vinyl to trace off the pattern templates. I made this one using KWIK Trace, and it worked OK…but for these smaller pieces and for the required placement markings, using Quilter’s Vinyl should work much better.
