I simply folded over 20cm (8 inches) and sewed all around the outer edge and then straight up the middle to make a split pocket for the front. Next measure up another 15cms and cut off the remainder of the case, fold a length of ribbon over the (cut) top edge to enclose it and sew the ribbon in place.
I could have stopped there, but don’t you agree it was really in need of some crochet love?
So using 2 ply crochet cotton I blanket stitched around the edge, then added a row of single crochet. On the next row add a picot edge that goes like this – single crochet in the first stitch, skip 2 sc, 6 double crochet in the next stitch, skip 2.

Adds a little sunshine to my housewifely duties. Now enough blogging/crafting, it’s time to go and do some work…. but shhh I’ll let you in on another secret… while I’m writing this my husband is clearing up dinner, and getting the kids in the bath 😉
