We didn’t need much evidence to see that my sister-in-law needed a new case for her phone. While she partied with us this weekend we put our heads together (I see a three-bodied, one-headed monster) to come up with a wallet/case for her. I have a pattern for a phone/wallet pattern and tutorial available for the iPhone 4, but we decided ad-libbing would be more fun for her slightly-different-dimensioned iPhone 5.
I didn’t make a pattern for her (I kinda wish I did, I love how it turned out). We ended up wrapping the leather around her phone and punching and sewing as we went.
We used a large leather scrap scored from an upholstery shop years ago. It’s thin, but stiff. Perfect for a durable case that will hopefully last years.
The rustic styling and minimal details play into Brooke’s style well.
I love the simplicity of this case.
And the one line of stitching down the side is a really neat detail, IMHO. ;)
Our little “experiment” was a total win. I couldn’t help but get even more excited and anxious to get my new phone and case!!
