Designer phone case inspiration...

You will love this new stitching die by Papertrey Ink that allows you to make phone cases and iPod cases! It's so much fun! I've made two so far...they are easy and quick to make...and would be fun for craft fairs or quick gifts!

The new Phone Case dies and the Phone Case Details dies were used to make this stitched heart phone case with a coordinating card. I cut the front from white felt and the back from Pure Poppy felt, but before I stitched the front and back together, I die cut the stitching holes for the heart with the Phone Case Details dies and stitched little X's with red thread.

The large felt heart is just attached with twine through the top right hand side of the stitching holes. It can be taken out, since it's separate from the stitching I used around the edges. If you sell these at craft fairs, you can easily hang a little tag with your name, price, etc!

On the back, I folded up the headphones that go with my iPhone and hot glued a strap on the back to tuck the headphones in. (Strap is from Tag Sale #11.) It's very secure, and the headphones won't fall out. You could always velcro it instead of hot glue on the ends, and that way you could pull the strap as tight as you wanted it over the velcro ends to hold the headphones in. So many ways you could hold the headphones. I'll show you another way at the end of my post.

DIES: Phone Case, Phone Case Details, Tiny Tags, Tag Sale #11

This card coordinates with the phone case above. Couldn't help myself, had to stitch another one of those hearts! This time on paper, a ticket that I die cut from Big Ticket Basics. You can certainly use those Phone Case Details dies (heart, chevrons, etc) on paper too.
Just love that font in hello from Big Ticket Basics Additions.

And one more phone case...I actually made this one first before the heart one. When I first received the phone case dies, I immediately thought of answering the phone...we all say, "Hello?", right? My mind went to the "hello" in the Quick Stitch Sentiments dies, so I used that die to create the stitching on this phone case. I also used the Stitching Lines dies to create the lines for the hanging hearts and cut some hearts from Tiny Tags.

On this case, I stitched the sides closed with twine, and it has a Raspberry Fizz felt back on it.
The new Tag Sale #11 die was used to make a pocket on the back for the headphones, and I stitched a little music note with tiny hearts as the circles on the music note. The tiny hearts are cut from the Tiny Tags die (center of the one rectangle tag.)
