TGIFF - Can You Hold My Phone?

Happy New Year and welcome to the first TGIFF of 2020! I hope that the year has treated you well so far and that you've had some time for sewing already 😊

I have been doing quite a bit of quilting on my Hollow Jewels quilt this week. The pattern is ready and I just need to get the quilt finished for its cover photo so I can release it. Hopefully that will happen in the next week or two. In the meantime, I have a small finish to share today, which was my last project of 2019.

Do you ever get the urge to make something you can finish quickly? That was how I was feeling between Christmas and New Year's. Since I sometimes watch things on my phone while I'm quilting or cooking and I find myself wishing I had something to hold my phone, I chose this tutorial from Michelle at Factotum of Arts and pulled out a fun blue/green/purple fabric from Island Batik.

I cut out the pieces and was ready to sew the first seam when I realized it's such a quick project, I could easily make two and give one to a friend. I paused long enough to cut the second one out and had them sewn them up a couple of minutes later. Seriously, that's about how long it took, lol. The only part of this whole project that took any amount of time was stuffing them, and that only because I cut up batting scraps again, which takes longer than just pulling stuffing out of a bag. It takes longer, but I sure do love using up those batting scraps!

A few minutes of hand stitching later, I had two finished phone stands 😊 I love making quilts, but a quick-finish project is wonderful sometimes, too.

I had to borrow Zach's phone to have a phone in the picture, since I use my phone to take the pictures, lol.

So, what have you finished already this year? Or do you have some secret gift sewing you can finally share? Link it up! Be sure to visit some of the other links, too, and help them celebrate their finishes.

  4. Hi Leanne! What a great, quick project and so useful too!! AND the batting stuffing!! Brilliant. I'm going to do that myself - while watching TV during the evening, just clip away on some batting scraps. Thanks for the idea. DUH, I say to myself. ~smile~ Roseanne
