Despite the newfangled challenges
iPhones appear to pose, I've wanted one for weeks.
But before I throw down all that cash, I'm going to make a carrying case based on the one for iPods in Susan Beal's new(ish) book Bead Simple
(The Taunton Press, 2008.)
Beal, a Portlander with PDX Super Crafty
, was previously a subject of the cover story "Crafty Bitches."
An easy-to-understand pattern is online here
. And the designer of the project, Natalie Zee Drieu, tells me it should be easy to adapt the pattern to the dimensions of the iPhone.
Best of all (unlike the gadget): The pattern is free.
