Sock it to me

A month ago I spilled coffee all over my iPhone. To replace my old phone, I thought the process would be simple: i.e. walk into store, purchase new phone, and walk out. Let's just say that I couldn't have been more wrong! Without ranting too much about the mishaps, my new phone needed a new case, since my old case didn't fit anymore. Scouring the shelves of the Apple store for something at all pleasing was a task without success. That's when I decided to make my own case.






Then a friend of a friend, Melissa, saw my case and wanted one for herself. Here's the one I made for her in olive color, which came out a little nicer than mine (the grey). I used a double layer of felt instead of wool, which ravels a little. Clio (the cat) seemed to care more about her nap inside of the lamp than the case, but I think it turned out pretty well!





One of the main reasons I like this case opposed to the cases I've purchased before is that it polishes the phone every time you slide it in and out.
It seemed almost impossible to keep my phone free of prints and smudges before. Plus I made it so it fits snug so the phone doesn't slip out, which has also happened to me several times with a leather sleeve.

Who knows... may be this will catch on and I'll get more orders? Thanks Melissa!
