Crafted Gifties

I made this a while ago for a friend of mine. He wanted a crocheted cell cozy with a diamond embroidered on it. Sounds simpe right?
Diamond Cell Cozy
Wrong! I tried, tried and tried to embroider that f***ing diamond on it, but it just didn't work. So finally after a lot of trial and error I sewed on crocheted chains in shape of a diamond. Kinda worked. In the picture my phone is in the cozy, and mine is a bit bigger than his, so the cozy is a little too stretched.

The same guy had a birthday. Well actually his birthday is on monday, but we celebrated last night. I made him a simple black tote bag with the heart&dagger embroidery on it. The heart&dagger embroidery is from sublime stitching stitch-it kit. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the whole tote bag, I totally forgot to take it.
The birthday-boy loved the gift, and the party was fun. Today I've been recovering from it by watching dumb TV-shows and eating greasy foods. Mmmm..sundays.
