Cozy iphone and Kobo case

Don't you find, gadgets can get expensive. First there is the cost of the gadget, then there are all the accessories you need to keep your gadget safe and being protective covers. Recently I purchased an iphone and needed a case. I was sad to find the cost of providing my new phone a cozy case was so high....... not wanting to shell out a ton of money, and also wanting to have a case that is uniquely me, I decided to make my own.
Having this in mind I started with yummy 100% wool felt, called Truefelt , and a lovely little assortment of silk thread, cotton faric and ric rac from Painters Threads.
I cut two squares, 3 1/4 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches long. I used pinking shears to give a fun edge.
I then made little orange roses with the binding tape. Using a needle and thread I gathered the binding tape with a running stitch, securing at back...I then sewed in place and added a couple of black beads to center.  Once I sewed my flowers in place I simply sewed the ric rac on for stems and added wee bit of embroidery for style, sewed a 1/8 seam on my sewing machine, done ......SEW SIMPLE
The real exciting part was I had enough material left to make my Kobo a happy home......again just with simple sewing. Happy Cozy Gadgets
