This may look familiar, why that is you ask? I had previously used embroidered patches to make a tassel phone case for my iPhone 5s back then. With embroidery taking the world by storm today, it wouldn’t be wrong to bring it back for a part two. So for those of us eyeballing some beautiful embroidered work what is the solution? Patches of course. Good news is that they are dirt cheap and can elevate just about anything (hint try a couple of them over a cross-body bag) And come spring, who doesn’t like a good dose of flowers? Speaking of all things floral have you downloaded the free iPhone wallpaper that I posted couple of days ago.
Now without a further adieu, let’s dive into this super quick DIY that you can whip in no-time.
- Transparent phone case
- Craft paper
- Embroidered patch
- X-acto knife
- Super glue
1.Outline your phone case on the craft paper. Don’t forget the camera and flash hole
2. Cut out the outline section.
3. With the help of an x-acto knife carefully clip the camera hole. Make sure you are doing this on a curing mat or surface that you don’t mind getting it scratched.
4. Insert the cut out craft paper into the phone case and adjust for any mismeasurements.
5. Next, flip the phone case and apply generous amount of super glue
6. Now, place the embroidered patch carefully on the back of the phone case such that it covers the surface well.
Give it some time to dry ( about an hour ) before use. The lilac craft paper was a good match for the more vibrant purple embroidered patch. You can choose to not place a craft paper backing but I think it accentuates the embroidered patch and makes it complete. Try this trick of placing pastel shades of color and match them with darker shades embroidered patch of the same color family. Note that before making your purchase, the patches are the exact same measurement of your phone case or you might have to trim the excess which will make for a messy job.
