Cell phone cases

My dh needed a new cell phone case so I thought I would give it a go. This one doesn't look too bad but it ended up too small. I think it shrunk a little in the molding process. I also used a piece of pig skin to line the inside so that the metal clip would not scratch the phone and that made it hard for the phone to slip in and out. Things to know and avoid for next time.

This one fits the phone better as I molded it around the phone and attached the clip with a second piece of leather. It is not without issues but is functional. In the picture the uneven bevelling really shows,  in real life, it isn't that in your face. Hand sewing is not my most favourite thing so I hope to see a leather sewing machine in my future.
