WONDROUS > Best new agents ever!
BF5 - DEC 15
It really is tough being a girl sometimes, especially when it comes to fitting out your gadgets with suitable attire. I’m specifically talking about the tortuous effort I went through to try and find something that a) wasn’t boring b) made of wetsuit material c) only comes in black or d) ridiculously overpriced and made of designer leather, that would fit around my iPad and keep it snug and safe whilst I carry it around. What with it being a portable device and all, this is quite important.
You can buy me (the Chanel number above) for $1555! Woooooot?!
I became so frustrated over the lack of iPad cozies in a style that I liked I even considered crafting something myself. And that’s when I realised…CRAFT! I hopped on Etsy and scoured the handmade market for iPad cases and discovered something wonderful.
The Woolly Avenger.
A felt designer who makes a whole manner of gadget cases, from Macbooks to iPods to Mobile Phones Cases, all designed and made from Merino wool, using a great combo of colours, materials and fun characters. Now it’s not be to everyone’s taste (but that’s just the point), I discovered a squirrel design (I love squirrels), called “Snickers”. It was a cozy made in heaven just for me. And a few emails later with the lovely designer En I had in my hands and around my iPad my dream cozy. I can’t tell you how happy I was. After all that searching (it was a long time).
Snickers the Squirrel. What a cutie!
En (aka the Woolly Avenger) has a whole host of other designs on her website, and she can custom make designs to order. If you’re looking for a cute, well-made and unique gadget case then look no further.
After owning it for a few months now, the cozy is withstanding a lot, as well as surviving a trip to Vegas. It’s handmade and well made, and I’m madly in love with it!
I was emailed this at work today - a wonderful illustrated version of the really sad and iconic Bowie song Space Oddity. I have never really visualised a song in this way before or thought how songs could be transformed into books. I love it!
