Felted phone case with vintage rosary bead chain ~ on Sale in my Etsy Shop!
iPhone case! This was great to create. The base is an old wool blanket. Using my Embellisher, I used layers of FiberFusion, lace from an old 1950's dress and then some of my hand-dyed rayon ribbon, to create a flower. The case is finished with a 1950's glass bead earring "flower center" with a brass filagree bee, that was once a brooch. I've added vintage copper rosary bead chain for a purse strap. The case was designed to accommodate the size of an iPhone 6S. One-of-a-kind, small "statement" pouch, on sale at my Etsy shop - RibbonSmyth.
