Little bits of Sewing

Just a couple of fun bits of sewing DIY:

A new case for my glasses made from: the last of an old quilted coat; a ribbon that came on a gift; some cardboard to give it strength and a little bias binding.

I got a new Kindle - as after 3 years I managed to wreck the first one. So I made a cover using the same idea as the glasses case but with some old fleece as padding.  (Note to self - trying to quilt fleece is NOT as fun as I thought it might be!)

And that's about it on the sewing front.

The garden however has finally decided that Spring has arrived, and at last everything is growing.

I think I need to get my teeth into another bigger project again....  and I'm not quite sure what.  However I've a couple of editions of "Sew Today" here and a list of blogs to browse, so I'm sure inspiration will not be far away....  


  1. I've been thinking it would be nice to have a place for my cell phone when gardening. No pockets, no belt so maybe something that could attach to a shirt without getting in the way? ;)

    1. I was thinking about this too actually... although for me it would be to use when out with the dogs. I thought a sort of sleeveless jacket with big pockets for dog treats, and then a small internal chest height pocket for the phone would be good.....

      I also wondered about a case you could strap to your upper arm, like you used to see folk with for running. Either that or a gun-holster style phone holder LOL! Or perhaps not. Hmmmm....

      Think the waistcoat sort of idea would work best for me...


Thank you for visiting my blog. I'd love to hear what you think so please do leave a comment - or even just a smile.... :-)
