Start Over

Today, I found something out.  Always plan!


I thought a good idea was enough to get started...after many mis-measured pieces, I've decided to start over.  Making this should not be a puzzle...ahg!


Measure twice, cut once!!!
Well, it is a good thing.  Now that I have decided to plan the Droid case out, I figured out a better way to make it.  It is still going to be fuzzy inside to keep the screen clean, but will also have a zipper for holding money or cards.


Back to work.

Droid Case and Fuzzy Paws

One of my coworkers came into work recently with a beautiful new Droid HD.  Even though she had only had it a day or two, I noticed a lot of smudges on her display.

When I told my husband, the eternal geek, he said, "Yeah, she needs to watch out for smudge attacks," and proceeded to explain that someone even more geeky than him could steal all the information from her phone using the smudges.   Whatever the case, I decided that she wouldn't want smudges on her beautiful screen and set out to resolve her smudge problem by making a soft case and fuzzy paw to wipe the screen clean.

It is still a work in progress and I haven't decided on which button to use to close the case.  Here are a few pics and maybe someone can help me decide:

Fuzzy paws and unfinished case.

Trying to decide on the buttons.

Jeff thinks this one is more functional...

I think this one is cuter...
Hopefully, I can finish this up soon, give it to my co-worker, and have a new design for my shop.
