Totoro felt phone case


I just thought I should do something new..some new craft and so i decided to try making a felt phone case. I've seen cute pictures of felt phone case online and it inspired me to make one.

Materials:
*felt
*leatherette
*eyes
*yarn


used these for totoro's and dust bunny's eyes

I used leatherette for the outer part and felt for the inner part(to protect the phone from scratches). The reason why I used leatherette is that if I use felt alone, the phone case would easily be destroyed because it is not as thick like the ones I see online. 

Before trying this craft, I thought I could sell it but after finishing it, I've decided not to. It didn't turn out well and I'm not confident about it. So I will just stick to my string dolls for now and try to search another craft that I could do and sell online :).

My dolls were featured!

This is an old news but I was too lazy to blog it then and just feel like blogging it now. This is about my string dolls - the only thing I can brag about. 

Remember the Alice in Wonderland string doll set? Someone from Etsy commissioned me to make just Alice and Mad Hatter for a birthday party. Well it was not just an ordinary birthday party. It's a themed party by Kalice Events. The theme was Alice in Wonderland obviously. I was so happy when the client got back to me and informed me that my string dolls were featured on their blog. That was really a cool party and my string dolls were part of it. I was so proud. :)

Another blogger Made By a Human also featured my string dolls. This time the Princess Mononoke Set. How sweet! :)
