11 Cross Stitch Phone Case

Cross Stitch Phone Case: I freely admit to being one of those people who stands on the street corner with my iPhone, checking emails, looking for the closest Chinese restaurant, and calling my mom… all at the same time. But as a crafter and general lover of all things homey and handmade, Ive longed to somehow make this sleek plastic piece of technology fit into my aesthetic worldview a little better. So, when the Leese Design Cross Stitch iPhone Case arrived at Purl Soho I could feel my crafty fingers just itching to give it a try. I couldn’t decide if I wanted a modern, punchy and fun design, like the iPhone’s , or if I’d prefer an ironic twist, juxtaposing four year-old technology with centuries-old craft. So, I made two! The Bird in a Tree version of the iPhone case, features a pattern from Caroline Vincents Sampler Workbook: Motifs & Patterns, an expansive collection of cross-stitch themes from the 17th through 19th centuries. The historical Autumn Tree Pattern is a classic design with a fresh and modern edge. I worked this pattern in Sajou’s Retors du Nord, a lovely collection of 4-ply embroidery floss. Sajou uses vintage reproduction thread cards to wind their floss, so it felt totally natural to use their beautiful Retors du Nord for this traditional pattern. For the striped design, I turned to the classic 6-ply DMC embroidery floss. With hundreds of colors in the DMC spectrum, including fluorescents, narrowing them down to twelve was both a pleasure and a challenge. I loved experimenting with different size stripes, mixing and matching the order of the colors to create both subtle shifts and sharp contrasts. Freeform cross-stitch is rare, so it was fun to design a project where I could really indulgemy creative whims! (via Purl Soho)

15 Book Laptop Case

Book Laptop Case: Make an original laptop covering using a discarded hardcover book and a long zipper found at any Dollar Store, you might even have all the materials at home already! I created a book-styled cover for my small netbook and turned my boring computer into a netbookbook! After seeing ChrysN’s Wood Kindle Case I wondered if I could make a fun cover for my small netbook. I’ve already made a laptop tripod which allows me to use my computer when I’m moving around in one area, but I wanted something to cover my netbook when I’m not in the Lab or when I’m out having a coffee. I found this vintage hardcover book with a bear attacking frontiersman, perfect for my netbookbook. This tidy cover can cleverly conceal your netbook to look like any other book in your library, here’s a short video showing the cover in action: I know you … (via mikeasaurus)

Upcycled Denim Phone Case: This got featured on Gizmodo !! Click here to see it Over the summer holidays i’ve been doing a lot of stuff, and like a real man, i wore jeans. However the things i do are so awesome the jeans couldn’t take it any more and big holes appeared at the knees.Usually this would be fine and i would just keep wearing them, but for some bizarre reason all the silly kids think its cool to wear pre-ripped jeans, so not wanting to look like lesser men i went out and bought some new man-jeans. So i decided to put my old jeans to a good use and make an iPod case, i wanted to keep the coolest part about jeans which is the leather label on the waistband. Now like most guys i don’t know a whole lot about needles and sewing so i decided the easiest way to make … (via =SMART=)

Needlepoint Phone Case: September is always teeming with gifts to give: another cousin headed off to college, a friend to thank for watering my cactus while I’ve been away, a birthday to celebrate in a family strangely full of autumn birthdays. I always want to give each and every one of these people a thoughtful handmade token, but with so many gifts to make, time is certainly of the essence! So with efficiency in mind, I used Leese Design’s iPhone Cases to stitch up this classic pair of Needlepoint iPhone Cases. They make the perfect last minute gift that college-bound cousins and little brothers will love just as much as that cactus-care taking friend! (via Purl Soho)
