Felted Acorn Pencil Case Reviewed by Lana Rosen on 2013-07-29 *****
This is the perfect size for my Samsung note phone. I just added an I-cord strap to it and it works beautifully. It protects the phone as well as makes the phone easily available when I am out and about. Very easy pattern. I've made several in different colors!
