Before I left

When I carry my handbag I have a mobile phone pocket so I have never needed a case. Now that I am traveling without a handbag I do need some sort of protection. I decided to look on my shelves for something soft and found a basket of nuno felted squares and scraps. These are wool felted with silk chiffon.

I sewed two together then added a pointy scrap to act as a flap

As you can see by the stitching on the flap I also added Velcro to keep it closed.

Then I placed this button, which was a gift from my friend Rita, on the flap to see how it looked.

Purple and Green. I like it. Now to tie it on.

Hand dyed pearl cotton with purple glass beads. I'm ready to roll.

Thanks for reading,


  1. Clever girl! You always find just the right materials to use, and the result is always unique! As for traveling without a handbag, how on earth do you do that? I could leave my phone home and not miss it, but the handbag would be really missed! Are you using a backpack?

  2. I always love your little pouches! You are inventive and fun! I hope you are having a wonderful time!
