iStitch

There's a place where craftiness intersects with technology. And that place is my hand, y'all.

Cross-stitch iphone case

Like my new iPhone case? I stitched it up myself.

I am a fan of monograms and initials. So I decided to do a fancy-schmancy "K", taking inspiration from Felicity Hall. (BTW...she has some fab patterns for free here.) For the rest, I just winged it. Needless to say, I'm pretty pleased how it all turned out. And unlike most of my projects, I will get to use this one on a daily basis.

It's like carrying a little bit of craftiness wherever I go.

Oh, I got my cross-stitch case from Connect Design. There are also some available at Purl Soho. So go ahead and stitch one of your own.

Your case is BAD*ASS! I hadn't heard of such a wonder as a cross-stitch phone case prior to reading! Leave it to the crafting community to come up with something as cool!

Sweet! I came across those and had thought about doin' one up myself. But I was working with the donkeys at that time and thought it would just get filthy. You'll have to let us know how it holds up. :)

That is absolutely fabulous! I know this is nowhere as creative as your iPhone case, but my friend gave me a key chain tab she had sewn for me and I use it all the time. It makes me very happy. I also knitted a cover for my Nook that I adore. Personalizing things you use every day is brilliant.

Stop it! Does your craftiness ever end? I love this! I will have to draw the line at the toilet seat cover though.

So cool! I love it! I wonder if they have one to fit my phone. I haven't done cross stitch since I was 12.
