Day 154: Save Those Sleeves!

Day 155: SHirtSKirt
Day 153: Thanks, Deb!

I am so excited!  I have finally given up my ancient cell phone for a fancy new smart phone.  I am amazed by all that this nifty gadget can do! :)

Finally giving up my Zack Morris phone for this! :)

I don’t have a case for it yet, and am terrified of dropping it or scratching it. :/

I grabbed a leftover sleeve from Day 26 and got to work.

Hi, Sleeve!

I cut it off and turned it into a fancy sleeve for my fancy new phone!  :)

Cozy & Safe!

This will do until I have a chance to run out and buy a sturdy case for it.  Hooray for saving those sleeves! :)

  1. When you’re done with this bag as a cell phone holder, you could use it for wrapping small Christmas presents! Adding a draw string would be a nice touch too!

    In my family, we’ve made re-usable bags out of old fabric for years now. I never thought to use sleeves for a bag though…. you got my wheels turning now!

    Oh and grats on the new phone!

    1. That’s a great idea. :) Last year, I sewed up all my presents in fabric bags, and you’re right…they’re terrific because you can use them over and over again! :)

  2. Hi, this is a clever idea. I just spent this morning at various Christmas craft fairs. Many vendors were selling cell phone bags. The only difference between yours and theirs is: 1) theirs were made with a quilted fabric (cushioning for the phone) and 2) the closure had a zipper with a little zipper pull. Going price in Hawaii for those gems—$15.00. Thought I’d share.

    1. Wowza. :) I’m probably just going to end up with a rubberized shell for it, but the bags are handy if you have lots of things in you bag that could scratch your phone. :)
