I’ve been on vacation for the past week, and thoroughly enjoying myself. But on Thursday, I somehow through my back out while doing some cleaning, which left me on the couch for the rest of the week.
In order to keep myself from getting bored and spending too much time on my phone playing World at Arms (which is really addictive!), I decided to work on some of the crochet projects that I’ve been wanting to finish for the shop.
One of these projects is a new product that is actually a set and perfect for those on the go. For example, I live about 18 miles from work, which isn’t a long haul, but it means if I forget something I can’t go home to get it because it’s 30 minutes each way. This set keeps me from losing anything and makes it easy to carry everything without having to carry more than one bag. My husband called it the “on the go” collection.
The set includes a water bottle cozy, an ereader cozy and a cozy for your smartphone. The smartphone and ereader cases have a button closure. Here’s my set:
My favorite color is blue, and this color is called marine. The pictures don’t really do it justice!
Here’s a few other images of the blue set. If I had been able to find dragonfly buttons, I would have used them, but unfortunately, I was unsuccessful. 🙁
However, these buttons are genuine wood and really add an earthy feel to the set, I think. The brown looks really good with the blue.
I also made a pink set with butterfly buttons. The pink set will be up for sale in the shop on February 22nd. These sets are available in just about any color, including a few variegated ones.
I’m also working on a yellow set, but I’m not sure I’ll get that one done until later this week. Here’s another look at the pink set:
The water bottle cozy for the pink set is a bit different than the blue one. It’s an open mesh design instead of a solid top and bottom with mesh in the middle. I’m not really sure which one I like better!
The point of these sets is to make it a bit easier to carry those things you need with you all the time. I’m constantly afraid that my Kindle Fire and Windows Phone are going to end up with scratches on the screens, so these cases help to put my mind at ease. They fit in my purse easily and don’t take up a lot of room. The water bottle cozy has a handle on it so that it’s easy to carry when you have your hands full, which I do every morning when I walk into work because I’m always carrying my protein shake, black tea, purse, keys and water.
Unfortunately, the yarn I’m used for the blue and pink set as well as the yarn I’m using for the yellow set has been discontinued, so I’m unable to make anymore. But future sets will also have a cord case for all your charging cables as well as small pouch for feminine products or anything else you can think of.
