We started sanding it， initially thinking we would just give it a fresh stain， but Ireallywanted to paint it a fun color. After we sanded it downdecorative pillow shams， removing the worst of the “；burned”； finish， we tested out some stains. Even Joe， who was really determined to stain the natural wood wasn't super excited about how the stain options were looking， so I suggested painting it again. And this time he agreed! Needless to say， I got in my car within 5 minutes of the decision being made so that I could grab some paint ：)personalized gifts for her

Many times, I just need a small container for my phone and my ID, and it has to be able to go through a little wear and tear. ?Looking through the remnants section of my local fabric store, I found some teal poly vinyl so I decided to make a waterproof pouch for my cell phone and the few cards I usually carry. ?I first made an unlined version (https://www.instructables.com/id/Cell-Phone-Pouch/), and then I decided to take it up a notch with a second version and added some medium weight cotton lining.I hope you find this helpful! ?All of this tutorial can be made on a standard sewing machine, but for ease, I would suggest making this version on a walking foot industrial sewing machine.I made this at TechShop!TechShop Pittsburgh: http://www.techshop.ws/pittsburgh.htmlTechShop homepage: http://www.techshop.ws/
