Free Pattern! Summertime Fishy Phone Case

Rain, rain, go away. Come again some other day. LOTS of rain here in Texas lately. Secretly I LOVE it, but warm days and buckets of rain just means swarms of mosquitoes, my sworn enemy. They love the flavor of my blood. 

Let's pretend its sunny, with a warm breeze, and you're packing your bag for the pool.

When I thought about what I could crochet for a day at the pool, a cute bikini wasn't the first thing that popped into my head. Eh, no, something a little more practical came to mind. How would I protect my phone from cannonball splashes and sunscreen fingers? A cute fishy case with a handy clip to attach to your favorite tote bag will hold your phone, ipod, or you could even use it to hold your ID and credit card.
