More crochet!

Hello all, hope that your day has been a good one?  Not sure what's happened to our weather, but it's sunshine and then grey clouds - and definitely a bit on the chilly side this afternoon!  But it is April I suppose - April showers and all that lol!

I've been busy with the crochet hook and yarn again - I do hope you're not getting fed up with the woolly creations?!  When I did the craft fair at the weekend, someone had suggested that she would be interested in a handmade crochet case for her laptop or other 'electronic' gadgets. So I thought I would have a go at making up a mobile phone case and came up with this

I used some gorgeous, silky feel variegated yarn, and made up the pattern in an amigurumi style (i.e. crocheted in a continuous spiral, so no seams)

I added a magnetic catch as I thought that would make for 'easier access' lol! 

And then added a wooden button to finish off the flap.  
I must make a note of the number of stitches I used otherwise if anyone want's me to make one, knowing my memory I'll forget how I did it....

I'd love to hear what you think of it.  I'm currently making a similar one that would fit an e-reader or Kindle, (and I might make one for myself as the case on my Kindle is definitely starting to look a bit shabby!).

I'm adding this to my Etsy store too - the link is HERE

Back soon,
