Something For The Ladies ...

Poppy and Forget-me-nots

I am still making for my Christmas stall, and realised that although I have quite a lot of things for children, perhaps I should have a few more things for the ladies. So I have been busy making these hand-knitted and embroidered phone or ipod cosies. I am having great fun deciding which flowers to embroider.


I have improved my previous phone cosy pattern. It is now knitted completely the other way up, starting at the rib top. The top is now more stretchy, which makes it easier to get your phone in and out. The bottom is now grafted like the toe of a sock, which I think makes it just a bit neater. I am going to put it on ravelry and Craftsy as a free pattern once I have typed it up.

Forget-me-not

These cosies, which will fit either an ipod touch, iphone, or a mobile phone that is approx 11cm by 6cm, can be found in my Etsy Shop. There are a few more on the way. I would love to know if you have any ideas for flowers which you think might be appealing?

Snowdrops

  1. You've managed to capture the poppy beautifully. What about a large sunflower or perhaps a daisy xx

  4. Oooh, I love the snowdrops. Suggestion: go back and look at the first picture without thinking of it as a phone cozy...wouldn't it make a FANTASTIC hot water bottle cover? Just saying...a little pick me up when someone is feeling not so well.

  21. I was another one thought they were mittens! How about a Christmas themed one - Poinsettia? Anyway they are really nice whatever they are used for in the end!

  23. I really like the way you make your phone cozies extra special with the embroidery. They are really lovely. The best cozy I have seen for a long time.

  24. these are so gorgeous! the finish does look really neat from the photos and i just love your embroidered flowers, especially the forget-me-knots - perhaps also a helpful aid memoir not to leave the phone anywhere! :)

  25. They are all so lovely especially the poppy one. Hope you have a good week.

  26. These are amazing I will defiantly be keeping an eye open for the pattern when it comes out.

    Popped over from Handmade Monday.

  27. They are really lovely, how about a gorgeous daisy or buttercup? It's a great way to keep your phone safer in your handbag - and, I suspect, makes it easier to find in there (I'm always losing mine in my bag)

  28. They are so cute - love the poppy!

  29. Your embroidery is so pretty, I love all the flowers but especially the forget-me-nots and the snowdrops, and the poppy oh I like them all, for suggestions I'd say pansy's or daisy's.
