Fo Friday

Well I'm pushing the time limit, but I made it!! I don't have a lot to share with you today, but I do have a few things.

The first thing I wanted to share is a cowl that I finished on Sunday. It's not completely finished for me yet because I plan on making separate flowers in lots of colors, which I'll be able to attach based on what I'm wearing! I haven't started those yet, but the actual cowl part is finished. The link to the Ravelry page is in the caption! Twisted is in parentheses because I didn't twist mine.

Easy (Twisted) Cowl

I tried to take pictures of it on me, but it just didn't work. So maybe my sister would be willing to model for me when she's home in a week! (I can't wait to see her!!!)

Next up, the final three teddy bear sweaters I was working on for my sister's bears! I'm super excited about these. Of course, while I was working on them, I was tired of doing the same thing over and over... But now that they're finished I kind of miss them. They take just over two hours each. The top one is a dark green. That's as light as I could get it to look--sorry about that!

Modified Teddy Sweater

Finally, this is the one I'm most excited about! It's a Kindle cover that I made based on a tutorial I found here. The tutorial is for a phone cover, but I modified it. I was able to make this cover using only one piece of felt in each color! If you click the pictures, you'll be able to see them larger. I just didn't want this post to be super long.

It was a little tricky to pin it because the pieces were so tight, but I got it to work. I'm sure it would be easier to have a larger piece of felt to work with, rather than one piece of the 25cent stuff. I added a snap to mine that came extra with a sweater I have. All I did was cut a piece of felt to the size I want, sew it onto the back (I forgot to sew the bottom part of the square, oops), and then sew the snap pieces on so that they line up. I didn't do this until after I had the case sewn together which made it difficult. This also helped to hold the two pieces of felt on each side together. They were a little loose otherwise, and my Kindle would have slipped into the wrong section, I'm sure!
