Cellphone Pouches

I thought I'd go ahead and post now since I'm waiting for the slop outside to dry up a bit. In the past 12 hours, we've had snow, rain, sleet, freezing rain, iceballs....I have so had my fill of having to rearrange my schedule due to weather conditions! I need to get groceries and I'm hoping to go do that soon!

The robin birds are usually back here by now but I haven't seen or heard any yet. I wouldn't want to come back to this mess either!

Ok, onto stitching!

I completed the stitching last night on the Breast Cancer Awareness cellphone pouch:

Breast Cancer Awareness Cellphone Pouch

It's much lighter than it looks here. I should have used the camera since I had it out rather than the scanner.

I added some Swarovski crystals to the SRE roses. The little hummingbird charm came from the bead store in Galena, Illinois. That's the only place I'm able to find those. I kind of ration them because they're expensive at $2.00 a piece. I usually don't use them on cellphone pouches but this one is special.

This pouch is already spoken for. I will be donating $25.00 from the sale of this pouch to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

I'll do the finishing next week so I'll post a final update for you then.

I also completed the finishing on these 2 pouches:

Blue Cellphone Pouch

Teddy With Hat Cellphone Pouch

These are ready now for their new owners.

I was asked if anyone actually uses these mini works of art. Yes, I know for a fact that Scott's step-mom uses hers all the time. These are great because they're big enough for a cellphone, cash & credit card. I believe MP3 Players will fit in these too. They can be worn around the neck for hands free shopping, gardening (if Spring ever gets here) and other activities where you don't want to carry a purse!

Ok, I plan to start on the Autism Awareness pouch later today. I'll have photos of that for you tomorrow.

I'm off now for groceries, if I can get my car out of the driveway!

Hi Pam,
You were asked if anyone uses the cellphone pouches. I use mine all the time for quick trips to market and food to go. Love it because I don't have to haul my purse everywhere. June

Pam,

Your breast cancer square is gorgeous! I love all the sparkles and the soft colors!

Are you going to sell it to the highest bidder, or just sell it at a specific price? I think you could earn a substantial donation for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation if you "raffle" it.
