Poppy Cellphone Case
To make an art picture, place a folksy flower atop an array of earth and sky tones; green brown, beige, light blue, dark blue, even reds or white.
For the cellphone case, start with 2 pcs of cardboard roughly the size of your phone and cover each pc with solid cotton fabric; hand sewn. Crochet the front cover and embellish with edging, scrap lace, beads, etc.. Crochet a separate trim pc that is long enough to cover the top and wide enough to support the cellphone, sew one side to the bottom of the crochet front piece and the other side to the back panel (like a flip phone). Then attach the crochet front piece to the designated front panel; sew on. To secure the phone, add corner elastic or use velcro.
