Little things

When I head to my American Legion Post, I carry a lot with me. I have a huge binder-turned-planner, paperwork, my cover bag which holds my cap, tie, medals, etc, then my normal stuff like a wallet, lip gloss, mints for the meeting and so forth.

The problem I always have is that with big tote bags, that means big, deep pockets. These pockets are not good to carry small cell phones in - you cannot find them quickly!

So, I started making small cell phone cases on clips. Any time I have to take a big tote, I clip the case onto the outside. Problem solved.

My kids liked the idea so much they wanted their own so that they could clip it to their pants or backpack.

I decided the other day to make a few and put them in our Etsy store and see what happens. They are approx. 3" x 4", stretchy, and fit most cell phones and mp3 players. So far I have listed two:

This one is done in shades of grey and blue.

And this one in bright colors.
Come check our Etsy store for more information, and watch for more colors soon!

The brightly colored one is fun-I don't carry a cell phone anymore, but they are pretty nifty!
