Christmas Crafting: NES phone sock

It's always the case around Christmas that I make up for my lack of crafting during the rest of the year (I've got out of the habit with a heavy workload and poor health, unfortunately), and it's no different this year. Thankfully, I've got an accomplice in the gamer, who I've recently infected with the crafting bug - I can't stop him coming up with t shirt designs now.

I made this NES phone sock for his christmas present (we traded a present each early, so no worries about spoilering him). It was made with the use of basic hand stitching, my glue gun and a lot of curses and time. I hate stitching on felt and I'd have fixed things if I had more time (it took longer than anticipated), but he assured me that he loved it. We also made some Mario themed baubles together (and have plans for death star and pac-man ones), but I won't post that until we've completed the set.

Finally, I'm back to knitting - this time a scarf for my uncle. I love the pattern I'm using, and the wool is wonderfully cosy and soft. Photos when finished, though it's not quite as exciting as this phone case.

Anyway, that's the last of this quick post, so hoping all your crafts are going well too!



  1. That's a wonderful gift! I wish someone would make me something for a gift. It automatically lets you know that they actually put time and effort into thinking about you. On that note, I haven't heard of good old phone socks in heaps. All everyone ever talks about these days are IPhone cases.

    1. Making gifts is always the best way - I tend to make fudge, peppermint creams and bottles of infused olive oil for people at Christmas (along with scarves, artwork and other various things). It's far more meaningful and also lets you avoid the holiday rush.

      Blegh, bloody iphone cases. I suppose the advantage of them is that you can see the screen, but I love a good phone sock. :)

  2. wow you are the best friend ever! that looks like it took forever!

    1. Aww, thanks! It did take longer than I thought it would, but eh. Worth it to give something special. ;)
