:: Handmade Christmas Holidays ::
My aim is for a well-organized and stress-free handmade Christmas. Some of my gifts are already made, and I hope that my head-start here will enable me to daily share a free or inexpensive gift idea with you.
Those gift ideas can be crochet patterns, knitting patterns, sewing patterns, holiday clip art, Christmas downloads, home decoration or DIY furniture tutorials, recipes or novel ideas. Daily holiday gifts making projects, from now till end December.
Feminine iPhone Cover :: Crochet Pattern
I’m kicking things off with this new crochet pattern for an iPhone cover. It makes an ideal gift. Light weight, unique, and utterly feminine and romantic.
The open-worked Irish lattice means that you can easily hear through the cover if need be. The beads at the front give luster to your cover. The OM bead is a reminder to ever be tranquil in all your conversations. You can use it to close the cover or just as an indicator to see which way is up.
Gauge is not critical as pattern is worked to the size desired for your device. Your measurements do not have to be perfect, as the cozy can stretch to fit your device. Adaptable to most weights of yarn, from roughly sock yarn to aran.
I choose thicker cotton yarn and used solid dc stitches on all the edges, for extra protection ~ just in case you drop your iPhone. There are no guarantees that the screen will survive, but at least you have a chance of it surviving. BTW. in case you missed it, here’s a tutorial on how to replace your iPhone screen.
Make this crochet cover as a sweet gift for a friend, or pair it with an actual iPhone or iPod for your teen/tween daughter. These are the best iPhone/iPod deals for the latest models.
This handmade gift is very fast to make. If you omit the beading, you can make several in one morning.
As well, you need very little yarn. Plus it’s designed in such a way, that you could easily make the sides into a different color, allowing you to use leftovers from your yarn stash for this project.
