Keep it covered

Regular readers may recall that my birthday present last year was an iPhone and that I quickly delighted in the opportunity it provided for sewing.

A case to keep it dust free and safe - a necessity when life includes long periods spent rattling around in a handbag full of pens, lipsticks, hair clips, lolly pop sticks, bits of Lego and a big old jangling key ring containing at least one of those keys that you have no idea what they actually unlock but dare not throw away.

That case has worked perfectly and I am glad of it on a daily basis. The original case was re-worked in order to accommodate an iPhone bumper case and there really is not a day goes by that I do not smile at my little phone case. I never seem to tire of that combination of linen and Liberty.

I was recently asked to make one for a friend and seeing her case in daily use made me smile even more.

So I thought it was about time I made some for my Handmade at Poshyarns shop and because this case really does make me so very happy I want to make someone else smile too, so I have one case to give away. Just leave a comment on this post by midnight on Thursday 27th January.

They are lovely but don't include me in the draw because I don't have an iphone either!

Oh I have to comment and keep my fingers crossed.

After I saw your original I tried making one myself. It was OK. But yours is lovelier by far...

Fingers crossed!

They are so lovely, I bet they'll sell well.
Don't include me in your giveaway as I don't have an iPhone either :(

Nice case! I've been keeping it in my coat pocket (a pocket in which I put nothing else for fear of scratches) and that works fine BUT. When summer comes I will need a new solution, as I will no longer be wearing a coat (impossible as that seems now).

Love it! I hope I am lucky one. I would smile every time I'd open it up. If I win, it just might inspire me to upgrade to the 4g.

If I don't win, I'll buy one. Lovely case (and I made up my mind to get an iPhone after your post on yours).

I am hoping if I a lucky enough to win, my husband will buy me the iphone as I am feeling left out on the technology front in this house. At the very least your giveway has tempted me out of the shadows and to leave a comment on your lovely blog.

Ooh, I'd love one - it's just what I need. I've been meaning to make a cover for my iphone for all the reasons you listed and I just haven't had the time to finish it.

I just had a iphone a month ago, and the association of linen and liberty is perfect.

Please don't put me in your draw - haven't got an iPhone and no desire for one - but just wanted to say your cover looks lovely!

Your covers are gorgeous! Love that combination of fresh linen and colourful pattern :) Would be just the thing to show off on the morning commute when I have to go back to work!

It looks beautiful. I would be very happy to buy one too, if I'm not the lucky one selected, as an old friend could do with a treat.

They are so nice, I like the flap fastening. I have an Ipod touch which I got for christmas (I think it is like an Iphone without the phone bit!) and I love it so much!

I got an iphone two weeks ago and was just thinking I really must try and protect it - your case would be fabulous.
Chanel is my favourite lipstick too - they somehow feel so decadent!

Your case is far superior to my knitted one, Rebecca. I love it!

I LOVE this and would buy one right now but I have a Droid X (5.02 x 2.58 x 0.39)... this would be too small, wouldn't it? :(

I have a blackberry which I suspect wouldn't fit so don't add me in the draw, but your covers are beautiful.
