Testing the Waters

Dear Reader,

I have a secret.

I want to start an Etsy.
A really bold move, I know. But it's true. 
I would love it so much.

So this is the start of what I hope turns into a little crafty business. Eek! I'm so excited :)

This is what I've been spending my week on, perfecting and tweaking. And (I think) it's absolutely perfected! I'm so excited to share this with you all!

Owl Phone Cozies!

For those of you who know me, you know that I'm almost obsessed with owls. If it made any sense at all to own one, I absolutely would. But since it doesn't, I had to settle for creating one. After several different little mini-models I finally think I've found the one I want! There's even a little pocket on the back side so you can slip in your headphones, license, etc. The poor middle guy there was all sewed up before I realized it would be smart to add a button on the inside so you can keep your iPod or phone all snug and secure. I'll probably give him a snap or something.

And there it is! Big enough to fit an iPod touch, phone, camera, etc. And roomy enough that a pair of headphones in the back pocket doesn't really make a difference.

So. My fingers and toes are all crossed. Here we go!


  1. OMG! Soooo cute!!

  2. Is there a tutorial for how to make one for my poor iPhone?My email

    1. I don't have a tutorial yet; I haven't decided how exactly I want to write one up! Hopefully soon I'll have a pattern ready to go that I can share!

  3. These are really cute! I've been looking into starting an Etsy shop as well. I still have a ton of questions though. Check out my blog (also fairly new!) and maybe shoot me an email sometime! I'd love to chat about what you've found with your adventures into Etsy!

  4. I too have an owl obsession and I absolutely LOVE these little guys! Good luck on your Etsy venture..I would buy one of these!

  5. Lovely! I will also keep my fingers crossed for your success at etsy!
