This was a perfect Saturday afternoon craft and excluding the drying time, took only 30 minutes to make. The design options are endless and I chose two fairly classic designs, but I'm definitely trying some more, so may update this post in the near future!
What I Used:
Clear iPhone Case [99p, eBay]
White Pleather Material [£3.99 for 1/2m, Dunelm]
Gold and Bronze Dylon Fabric Paint [£2.99 each, The Range]
Scissors / Paintbrush / Pencil / Hole Punch / Craft Knife
This pvc 'pleather' is so versatile: durable, flexible and very easy to work with - perfect for this project.
Using my case as the template, I traced the outline and camera lens on to the back of the material:
...the material is easily cut with scissors, but for the more tricky area for the camera lens, I used a craft knife and then neatened the edges with small fabric scissors [thanks to Claire!]:
Next - although you could leave the cover as it is - on to the decoration. I decided on classic and simple for my first attempts - stripes and spots, both created with the help of my washi tape. Sticking a length of tape onto my cutting board, I used my ruler and craft knife to create some stripes:
...and sticking my tape onto some card, used a hole punch to create my spots [washi tape removed
to be placed on my case with the help of my craft knife to separate the card and tape]:
around 10/15 minutes of drying time in between to ensure the paint didn't come away:
Before gluing, make any final sizing checks and trim any excess if needed:
I didn't go right to the edges with the glue, as this would escape between the case and fabric as
soon as I applied any pressure and cause me a whole load of bother I definitely don't have time for:
