I'm not sure what to call the outcome, but I wanted something that could keep my cell phone, keys, and ID cards from getting lost in my "beach bag" when I go swimming. Inspired by the Picnic Caddy, I made a Beach Caddy (Snowy Bliss is quite an inspiring blog as you can see). I chose Felt, because I accidentally found it in a shop while looking for other things. I still haven't quite figured out where everything is here.
Anyways, here it is, with step by step progress images:
|Two Colors of Felt, Same Width But Different Lengths|
|Some Pretty Lace, Buttons, and Embroidery Thread|
|Cut The Shorter Felt In Half, Sew The Lace On One Side|
|Sew Lace On The Longer Felt In a V Shape As Above, Leave Extra Lace Uncut and Stitch The Buttons In A Line|
|Attach The Smaller Felt On Reverse Side, Use Blanket Stitch Along The Sides Of The Yellow Felt|
And Voila! This is the final outcome. I was surprised how quickly I remembered the blanket stitches. It was like I had never stopped stitching!
I could think of so many variations to this caddy, for the iPod, iPad, as a cute cover for a diary, etc. It is all for you to decide. It can be a creative as you want it to be.
Until next time, keep the creative juices flowing!
