Guest Post! -- The Letter Four

Hey there! We're excited as ants on a cracker to introduce ourselves here today on Faith's blog.
We are The Letter 4. A blog of 4 sisters with all different talents and tastes. We grew up so close to one another and our blog has been a way for us to feel close to each other again despite living far apart. The oldest is Julianna, who likes to craft and cook. Next is Jade who is our expert chef. Then there is Jamie who is the designer/printable maker of the blog. And last there is the baby of the family, Janae. She is our style guru and is always sharing hair tutorials. You can link up your style related posts to our What I Wore Link Party every Wednesday.


Today I wanted to share with you a project I did to help me with my "problem"
I have a serious problem. I never ever ever can find my phone. If I can go the entire day without looking for my phone it's a good day. And actually I don't know where my phone is more days then where I know it is. And yes they have that app where it will locate your phone but it's just so much easier not to lost it in the first place, right? I tell people (ok lets be honest my sisters are the ones who call me so I told them) that I can never find it cause I am always walking around the house in yoga pants and a t-shirt and have no pockets to hold my phone in. Insert, the iphone pouch necklace.....
This was one of those projects that I wasn't sure would work out, but I desperately needed something like this so I attempted it and quite frankly, I'm in love!
So how I made it was I took some white fabric I had traced out a piece of fabric that was twice as long as the iphone and then some for some seam allowance. (say hello to me in the phone!)
Then I took some painters tape and made my triangles making sure to press the tape down as flat as I could so the paint wouldn't bleed.
Then I sponged on some paint and let it dry! When you are painting it be sure to just touch the fabric rather than sweep it, again avoiding bleeding.
The next part I cheated. I used a lifeline known as "my sister Janae will sew it for me." I cannot sew for the life of me! But she simply sewed a hem at the top and then sewed up the sides! Then Janae also so graciously let me use a chain off of an old necklace that she had and I glued it into the sides on the inside and then hand stitched one of the links to make sure it would stay.
Done! Now I have NO excuse not to have my phone on me anymore. And I love love love this thing. It's been a week and I have not lost my phone once, that's kind of a miracle in my life. My sisters are thrilled they can get a hold of me!
Hope that inspires those of you that have my same "problem"!
Be sure to stop by our blog and say hi!
 Thanks for having us today Faith!!!
