Crocheted iPhone cozy with *shimmery* yarn



Yesterday, I crocheted this iPhone cozy for my new iPhone.

After several months (or even years) of consideration, I finally replaced my old cell phone with the iPhone, and I can't be happier.  (Although I realize that I'm just too low-tech to be the latest smart phone user myself...:P

I love glittery and shimmery items, so I used this shimmery yarn (in silver) that I got from our local Joann store to make this iPhone cozy.  It's really a pretty yarn with lots of shimmer!

I began crocheting on Saturday afternoon...



But after several rows of crocheting, I realized that the size was too big for my iPhone,
so I had to unravel everything and start all over again, which is very common when I crochet :P



With my second attempt, a snugly fitting iPhone cozy was completed several hours later...  Phew.

I used a lace covered button to hold the handle on one side.



I think this handmade *shimmery* silver iPhone cozy matches perfectly with my *shimmery* silver bag that I use everyday.  (See, I told you I love shimmery things...!)




I love to make small items like this one with crochet.
  It simply gives me a sense of accomplishment even when I'm too busy to tackle larger projects.


Well,  thanks for visiting and hope you have a good week!!

シルバーで大人なiPhoneケースですね!色の違いはあるものの、お嬢さんたちがキラキラ好きなのはAmyさんの血ですね。間違いなく!!
携帯電話、わたくしは非常に古いタイプの物使っています。多分、Amyさんの昔のヤツと同じかと・・・・旦那も古いのを使っています。ちなみにPCも古いので、最近のタッチパネルの電話やPCにとっても疎くなってしまいました・・・
息子に先を越される日もそう遠くない気がします!

What a pretty little cosy - love the shimmery yarn. I always start to big too when I crochet cosy's as I always want them to be a snug fit and forget how stretchy crochet can be.
