iphone case

I won a Napkitten iphone case pattern from a blog called innocentia.
This has to be the best sewing tutorial pdf I have ever received - It is very detailed & easy to understand.
I would definitely recommend a purchase from Nap kitten after trying this.
Here is a photo of my first attempt:
 I haven't decided if I want to use snaps or velcro for the closure so I have not added them yet.
Maybe on the next one I will stitch a small motif in the center panel -
We will have to see

About the blogger experiment from my previous post-
I received more negative emails than positive so I reverted back to my old layout - It seems not everyone can access the new design features - And I think every one of you is important enough to keep satisfied
I emailed blogger suggestions from comments I received so maybe they will improve the options
Enjoy your weekend 
Thanks for stopping by !!!

I can't figure out why I'm behind with my laundry...

 Any ideas?


By the way
Blogger has updated their design capabilities once again. Check out my blog to try it out-
You can view blogs in different styles -
I personally think the Mosaic is a fun option
I do not know how to add a friends list but I assure you I am still following everyone on my google reader -
(Close to 800 blogs at this time)
Update: It seems that  all browsers are not capable of utilizing the new design features - I received many emails that bloggers were not able to see photos - 
I have reverted to my old layout do to the responses I received from bloggers unable to view my blog content. Thank you for giving it a try & I certainly appreciate the feedback !!!
Have a great week
