Purple Mask Blackberry Case

Hello again everyone!
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Fabulising February projects :) As March has begun, I can start some projects from scratch again. I have a few ideas lined up so let's see how I'll get on in actually executing them ;) I finished one already!

But let me start by the beginning first...

Do you remember the cupcake pouch I made for the Blackberry phone a long time ago? A good few months ago, I realised that it was close to death and really needed to be replaced. So I made another one. This is the replacement I made at the time:

I used some of the fabrics planned for my Halloween quilt for this. I figured a few centimeters missing would not do any harm.

This is the other side. Very purple, very catty, and lined with fleece as usual.

For some reason though, this pouch did not stay in place very well, the layers kept getting separated when I pulled the phone out, and it was just generally annoying me. Until I finally decided that this really was not my best work and another one had to be made.

Meanwhile, we had gone on a fabric shopping trip and I had bought some amazing fabric with masks on it. Together with a purple cotton from the quilt stash, I could make an amazing new pouch. And so I did:

This is the end result! I took much more care into making this, it has 2 layers of fleece rather than one which turned out to be the secret of the very first pouch I made anyway, and I hemmed it with black bias tape to ensure it all stuck together properly this time.

The other side has more of an orangy colour scheme as I didn't want to make it too purple (although, can there ever be such a thing?) and with the orange fleece lining it really works.

I didn't take a lot of pictures this time, but I'm extremely pleased with how this one turned out. And I finally used the mask fabric! I still have a lot of it left, so I have to think of something to use it for. I'll let you know once I finally have an idea! Until then, at least I have a shiny new case (or pouch if you wish) for my phone. Yay! :)
