Lately my daughter and I have been making books and booklets, among other things. We even started a little DaWanda shop to sell some of the booklets we make. It’s called “Morgan Le Fea’s Trinkets, after my daughters second name.
Making these booklets is very relaxing and leaves room for all sorts of creativity, as I found cruising the internet. So much creative people out there, it’s amazing, and, as I found, many blogs reside here on blogger (or blogspot, whatever it is called). So I thought I would start a blog here as well.
I do have another blog on lifejournal (also called Morgan Le Fea’s Trinkets), that is more focussed on making victorian clothes and unmentionables (another one of my interrests). As time goes by, I might transfer all the blogposts and photo’s from lifejournal to this place, but for now I will leave it as is, as the corset making community on lifejournal is a very active one and I would like to keep in touch with what happens there.
Anyway enough ramblings on my part, on to the pictures of my new Victorian style Steampunk iPhone case.
Made to acompany me when I go to the Elf Fantasy Fair in the Netherlands, dressed in victorian gear (ehm clothes). I can now use my iPhone, while still appearing as a victorian lady, reading a book …
The iPhone compartment was cut out of the bookpages using a craft knife, and then glued together. I put a ribbon underneathe the iPhone for easy removal, since the compartment is really snug. I did end up putting a cover over it, just to make sure the Phone would not accidentally fall out should I hold the book in a funny way…you never know, right?
I used the free downloadable set printable papers from Jodie Lee Designs, some freebie printables from Cemerony and some Alfons Mucha pictures. I folded some envelopes from the paper and added some lace, embellishments and clips. The lace and ribbon were grunged up using distress inks and some glimmer mist. I kept the book rather simple, because I will need to be able to carry it with me thoughout the day.
