Thank You to My Pattern Testers Once Again!

A great big THANK YOU goes out to my pattern testers. This time around they tested my So Many Ways Cellphone Case. It's a fun little case when you just need to grab your phone, your ID, card or cash, and even your earbuds. Great for taking the dog for a walk, or running errands. This case has several options you can apply, so you can make it to fit your needs.

Trish ( used these super bright and cheerful blues and oranges. Great contrast in colors and I am loving this!

Maxine took my pattern to a whole other level with hers. She first sent me her case with this cute ladybug fabric with lots of color, which was adorable. I later got another photo from her of the dressy one. Wow! What a brilliant idea! In place of the binding she used this sparkly trim on this elegant fabric. After seeing hers I had to run out to the fabric store to buy fancy trims so I can make one for me! She also added her own creative touch by replacing the binding on the ladybug case with piping.

Julia ( is another one that made me go shopping after receiving her pictures. She used the fabric from my absolute favorite fabric designer, Tim Holtz. I've been admiring that fabric for some time now so I figured it was time to order some. It has already arrived and I love it!

Jodi used this super cute nautical fabric. Instead of two different colors, she used three and they all come together seamlessly. I love the way she used the third fabric for the pocket binding and strap. Love the anchors with the mix of blues too. 

Jeanne combined this earthy little bird and birdhouse fabric with a touch of pink with great results! She took her pictures outside with a pretty lake in the background. Between that and the cute fabric, it made me think of Spring!

Chris chose this tiny cute paisley print fabric. I've never seen a paisley done in such a small print and I love it! It's the perfect fabric for such a small project. Pairing it with the tan binding is a perfect touch!

Celia ( did one of my favorite things with this pattern. She mixed stripes and dots. The yellow and black go so perfect together! Instead of making the strap a one size fits all, she decided to make it a "tie" so that the recipient can use it as a crossbody or a neck strap. Great idea!

My personal favorite of the three options is the belt clip. The clip does have to be special ordered but is extremely inexpensive. I believe I paid about a buck a piece for them. I give the link to two shops that sell them on the pattern.

Thanks again to all my wonderful pattern testers! You're help is much appreciated.
