Embroidered iPhone Case


I made this little iPhone case as a birthday prezzie for my friend Angie. My embroidery stitches aren't amazing but at least I can say it has a certain "rustic" charm. I used unbleached calico for the outside and lined it with a super snuggly layer of flannel to keep the phone warm in its bed at night.

  1. Considering the number of times my brother has dropped his (the screen has a crack in it now!) this is a great idea! Especially if you put a couple layers of batting underneath for padding and quilted the layers together!

  4. So cute!

    Off topic, but might I ask, where did have your clothing labels made? And are they soft or scratchy? I would love to find some for my homemade pieces and yours are so pretty!

  5. Thanks everyone!

    Taylor, if you google "sewing labels" you'll find a plethora of online shops who make them. Mine were from Woven Labels UK. They're the kind my mum used to sew into my school uniform with my name on! I wouldn't call them soft or scratchy - somewhere in between...

  6. i love your soundtracks. that's gotta be one of the best blondie songs-- you should tell your friend, her phone wants that ringtone to go with its snuggly case :)

  7. What a fun gift! Speaking of embroidery, I have my Sublime Stitching winnings all laid out and ready to go. It was fun figuring out which of the beach babes should go where. I'm planning on taking the project on vacation with me to help the time pass on a long airplane flight and during quiet evenings.
