Found a stitch-your-own cover for iPhone 4 and this is what I did with it. Smiley

Cap and Iron Man come from here: (http://dorkstitch.blogspot.se/2012/05/cross-stitch-pattern-fun-with-avengers.html). I altered the patterns slightly for size and color, most notably I removed a row of stitches from Cap's shield and changed Iron Man's eyes.

The heart can be found here: http://www.craftdesigns4you.com/learntostitch.htm

The case is made of silicone (or something like it) and quite easy to stitch through, but it does put a lot of strain on the thread. So after I made Cap's outline (black on black, such a joy) I started using much shorter strands of floss to prevent fraying. Smiley

Now, I'm cursing the fact that none of my friends have an iPhone. Seriously, hand-stitched iPhone cases would make a perfect Christmas gift. *grumble*

I love it, what a great idea! Where did you find the case? Stony is nice, but I may have to make myself a Science Bros case, lol. Smiley

This is my signature; there are many like it, but this one is mine.

Thank you. Smiley

I picked the case up at a local home textile shop of all places (Hemtex if you happen to be in Sweden) but according to the box it's manufactured by Leese Design. I think it's a Korean company (at least it says Made in Korea on the box) but if it's available in Sweden it should be available elsewhere. Smiley

I really kind of want a million of these with different designs. Maybe that way I won't cry when I inevitably put it down in a puddle of coffee. Cheesy

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
