3 gifts from fabric scraps

Today i am going to share with you 3 things i have made from some small pieces of fabric scraps.  Each project took less than half an hour and i have to say i'm quite pleased with how they turned out given i made two of them up...
First item is this phone holder which i made up as i went along.  It was really easy and if anyone is interested i may try and do a tutorial for it.
This owl fabric is one of my faves at the moment.

I used fusible interfacing on the back of the lining and the main fabric to give it a bit of stability and attached a key fob as i am always losing my phone so now i can attach the case inside my handbag.

The next two items i made using some Amy Butler scraps.  These are a present for Mr G's Auntie who goes nowhere without pocket tissues and a chapstick!!

For the tissue holder i followed a tutorial over on skiptomylou. If you haven't visited Cindy's site go and look straight away she has so many fab homemade gift idea's and tutorials.
This chapstick holder i made up as i went along using a similar process to the phone holder but i didn't use interfacing. These projects were so easy and only took scrapos and very little time so i'm probably going to make a bundle for pressies.  They would make good Mothers Day gifts for starters..
