I bought an adorable little iPhone case for about $8. As cute as it was, it didn’t last very long at all..
The decorations wore off super quickly and eventually the only thing left was the plastic white shell 😦
It made me think about it, though. Why not add my own decorations?! Duh
So I grabbed my fabric, hot glue gun, a few more crafting supplies and had at it! Here’s the final result!
It’s pretty easy. All you will need is:
-an old iPhone case
-fabric, embroidery thread, felt, and whatever else you would like to decorate the fabric with
-hot glue gun
-scissors, and x-acto knife
Simply cut the fabric out so that there is plenty of room to wrap it around the outer part of the case, decorate the fabric however you would like, and then hot glue the fabric to the case.
I used the Mod Podge to harden the fabric that I was using, esp around the edges before I detailed them with an x-acto knife. You may not need to do this, depending on how well your fabric holds together.
I did go around the very edges and hot glue a nice layer so that they wouldn’t come loose very quickly. Remember, the shell that I was using was white, so I touched up with a little black paint so that this part looks perfecto for me 🙂 You do what you need to do here, depending on your project.
If you’re looking to add lettering like I did, I suggest making a quick template on some durable card stock. Pin that to your fabric and start tracing the letters with a back stitch. I also added a cute little felt heart, just because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I’m honestly just a little excited about it 🙂 Feel free to ask any questions in the comment section below!
