In between some big projects, I took Piet Mondrian's Composition II in Red, Blue, and Yellow and put it on a cover for an iPod Touch.

The image has no black stitches, so the black lines you see in the image are just the underlying fabric, giving it a bit of dimension.  I was unsure what to put on the back, so I googled Mondrian quotations and found a doozy.

The whole project took me about 12 hours, which isn't too bad, but I stayed up until 4am one night working on it.  That was stupid.  I chose to go with black trim so that it wouldn't distract from the simple elegance of the image and the text.

By the way, the long, thin text is an original (I can give you the pattern if you like), and the other one comes from good natured girls book Alphabetical Order (ISBN 1-57486-752-0)

That looks epically awesome! Great job on it--did you do anything in particular to keep the edges of the fabric from fraying later?

Well, the edges of the fabric are on the inside; they do fray a bit, but I've been using one for several months now and it keeps strong.  The idea is that I stitch it closed up the sides 3 stitches from the edge, which gives me at least one full stitch width that is alright to fray and fall apart, leaving the thread 2 stitches from the edge.  Does that make sense? 

I made a tutorial for another case I made http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=356489.msg4174466#msg4174466
