DIY Cross Stitch Cell Phone Case (and I don’t mean DIY after you BUY the kit to cross stitch your case). This is a tutorial for those who don’t want to buy the kits to do this. Easy (for beginners - she even tells you to get the 14 count plastic canvas) and you can use it for all types of phones - not just the iPhone. Tutorial from weelittlestitches here.
