Cell Phone Wallet Holder 2

SAM_3068 SAM_3069I love my cell phone case, but I didn’t expect my amazing awesome friends to like them as much. So, I was a busy bee making 3 more. I used different yarns – chunky, sequined, baby yarn, and handicrafters and they worked well, but the supersaver was probably the best for this project. And I DO NOT recommend using the sequined on the phone section, just for the card pocket. Here are pics of the other ones I have made.

Welcome!

Hi Everyone!
I hope you find this blog useful for craft ideas and patterns. Whenever I start to brainstorm a project, I google for similar projects that I can base mine off of and then I modify. Very few patterns do I follow to their entirety. And that is if I follow one at all. I hope this site gives inspiration to the many other crafty people out there, and I will try to update it weekly or every two weeks.
I am open for suggestions on projects, so please leave me a comment if you need help coming up with a pattern or something. I am NO expert, but do enjoy working with yarn.
Occasionally, I may post a yummy recipe that I feel everyone needs to know about. I will always try to give credit to my sources, as I hope people will do the same for me. Feel free to use the patterns for personal use, gifts or fundraisers.
Enjoy!
