Simple iPhone Cozy


Simple iPhone Cozy



Hello Dears! :) Lately, I've been posting gadget cozies because I find it fun and easy to make. It is also my way of mastering new found stitch. :) And also let us not forget that we also need it to protect our precious gadgets. If your interested, you may find the free tutorials here and here


Since I rarely put my phone on my pocket I thought I should make one that I can carry around with out the need of a purse. I intentionally made the sling removable so that I have an option to remove it just in case I have to put it inside my purse. Worry not because I designed this for beginners so you can expect that the pattern is very easy to follow. No fancy stitches just a repetition of single and double crochet. :)

I really had a great time making this on Red Heart Reflective yarn. The yarn is very soft and has a velvety feel so even though it is classified as bulk, you will not have difficulty using a smaller hook. :) Plus! It's shining! Did I say that correctly? I think so.. Just use the flash on you camera and you'll know what I'm talking about. Don't say I didn't warn you. :p How I wish I have more of this yarn. The possibilities is just endless. :D
