Touch wood, it’s been two years since my last drowned/saturated in Nando’s hot sauce incident with my mobile phone. I may ‘reward’ myself with one of these delightful (you know I’m all over the owl one) handmade phone pouches by London based textile designer Chloe Owens. Made from felt and appliqued and embellished with vintage and vintage inspired fabrics, embroidery, and buttons, they epitomise the retrotriffic style I love her work for – have you swooned at her owl soft toys yet?) My only fear is that it will catch the eyes of my owl and iPhone loving children. Â£10-Â£15 each
They’re also an ‘alternative’ less obvious gift for a new mama.
