Snow Day Bag

That project I told you about yesterday? Conceived, researched, and completed within a week, a mini bag for my brand-new iPhone. I'm pretty precious about the phone, since it's expensive, and I needed a way to carry it around the house while I do housework, so I can still listen to the iPod-ness of it.

I followed this mini-wallet tutorial, but made mine about twice as big. I'm so proud of it, it's just about the first thing I've made that looks like it might have come from a shop. (It doesn't look at all bodged - and it wasn't!)

It fits my phone, wallet, and keys, should I need to pop out to the shops. I'm quite pleased with the box corners which make it extra roomy.

And here are the linings. The front flap and pocket with have a popper (snap) at some point, but it stays well enough closed itself for the moment.

Finally, I must say I got the knotted strap idea from here.

I've already used it today, and for extra measure, it means I can really feel the phone vibrations! The school was polling everyone to see if we could make it in tomorrow, so perhaps this is my last snow day. :)
