Alicia's Dino Phone Pocket

First off, Happy National Craft Month, everybody!

To kick of the month, I thought I'd introduce my friend, Alicia. She's a good friend, a baker, an animal lover, and a loom knitter. :)  Alicia is actually the one that introduced me to loom knitting, as well as participated with me on pledging beanies for head huggers.  She has probably made several dozens of beanies since she started loom knitting.

Here is one of Alicia's latest projects.  She calls it the Dino Phone Pocket. Isn't it cute? She used the blue knitting loom, while holding 3 yarns (red heart).  She started as if she were making a small beanie, then whipstitched the bottom close.  Small bits of yarn were threaded on the yarn on each peg and tied in a knot before removing the yarn from the peg.  That created the top fringe.  The dinosaurs were then added as large buttons which fits in the large button holes from the top row.  It took her about an hour and a half to complete this project.
