One of my all time favorite things I’ve made is still my first iPhone case. I had to retire it though when I got my iPhone 6, it doesn’t fit plus it got really grubby after spending a year being taken in and out of my pants pockets.
All the way back in November I bought a cross stitchable iPhone 6 case and I finally decided I needed to stop thinking about it and just start stitching. The seller contacted me and gave me a coupon code for all of my lovely readers! If you buy a case use the code HUGSAREFUN for $2 off!
I loved the triangles of my first case but didn’t want to do the exact same thing, so this time I made half the pattern grey triangles. Then for the other triangles I did a transition of rainbow colors. It worked out really nicely that each color got 2 rows of the case, the first time around the purple only got one row.
I picked up some Scotch Guard yesterday at Joann Fabrics with the intention of sealing it before I started using it, but then I realized it’s outdoor. I need to test it and do some research and find out if this will be a problem, I really don’t want to ruin this!
I’m really happy with how this turned out. It felt like it took forever but really it was just a little over a week. I’m a lot slower stitching on plastic than I am with fabric, it’s more of a battle getting the needle through and I broke several in the process.
Have you ever tried using Scotch Guard or another sealer on cross stitch? Any horror stories or advice?
