Makes me think of cotton candy

I have 3 iPhone sleeves done all using my turquoise felt and 3 in progress using the charcoal grey felt. I got a little crazy with the turquoise felt! The final sleeves make me think of cotton candy - pink and turquoise with mauve stitching.

I started by putting some designs together in Illustrator...

Then I cut out the felt and added the felt applique designs...

Next I added a back pocket for business cards...

Then I used stitch witchery to iron the outside to the inside. I'm using a black inside for all of the sleeves. After the stitch witchery, I stitched the edges using my sewing machine...

Finally I hand stitched the sides...

Here's iPhone sleeve #2...

And iPhone sleeve #3...

Once the iPhone sleeves are complete, I can work on coffee sleeves or Xmas stockings. This is the pile of stockings I have to work through... Cutting fabric is uber boring. That is one part of the process that is not very inspiring!
