The SC & more: Telephone

This week, the theme Isabelle gave us was: desk/office accessorise. I decided to make a phone for my children. There are many things I could need for my own desk, but somehow I could not think of any at the right time!
I saw a few "retro" phones on Pinterest and decided to let them inspire me ;) but I drew my own pattern, I did not copy anyone's.

Getting the plastic insert ready
But then I had to fold it back to get it in

As soon as the children got home, the phone started ringing. So I take it they liked what they found on their little desk.
The whole phone was rather easy to make, the crocheted part took a little too long for my taste though and was rather unpractical, the electric cord should have been attached at the back of the phone, but I remembered about it far too late. Nevermind, it still works ;)

Don't forget to check out the others' creations!

    1. I wanted to give it a 70's style, the colours are chosen on purpose to look "horrible" ;)
