Smartphone Wristlets

Posted in Sewing

I posted last time on the awesome cheetah suede cloth I found over the summer.  I’ve been using it for making smartphone wristlets locally and online.  I thought you might like to see how the fabric works up in a wristlet. I’ve included some of the wristlets I’ve made out of real suede as well.  Suede is thicker and in my opinion much hard to sew.  But I love the final product and the velvety softness.

This wristlets can hold smartphones, iPhone 5 and of course iPhone 4.  They are perfect for those days you don’t want to lug around a big purse but still carry your essentials – cell phone, keys, money, credit cards.

 

Cheetah Suede Cloth

Posted in Sewing

Back!  Life has a way of piling one thing after another around here!  New pets, family,  home repairs – the unplanned kind, wholesale orders, customer orders…ah  the usual!  : )   Now back to blogging!  I’ll be mixing it up with art, paintings, sewing, and my photography.

I wanted to share this awesome fabric I found this summer:cheetah suedeclothIt is a soft suede cloth cheetah print. It has a richness of browns and caramel tans as well as being soft. Suede cloth is a synthetic fabric that has a velvet-like nap finish and an easy care fabric.  I enjoy sewing with it and love the way it looks in a  finished item.

To make it more fun, animal prints are big in this season’s fashion and accessories.   I’ve been using this fabric in local sewing, as well as in my Etsy shop.  It’s been a big hit sewn as smartphone wristlets locally at Nich.  I have used it for some items in my shop with more to come.
