I got a new iPhone earlier in the year and knowing how ‘fragile’ they can be, I bought a protective screen cover and case for it. Although this did help, I still managed to scratch the phone while it was in my bag, which I had carelessly thrown in with keys and various other objects. To prevent any further damage I set to work on creating a protective crochet sleeve.
I knew how I wanted it to look like and started to create my own pattern. It did take several attempts to get the fit just right (using the Snow White approach: this one is too small…too large…ahh just right!). I then tried various colour combinations and also included a hole for the headphones on some.
Finally, the finishing touch was to add one of my polymer clay buttons to the front, et voila! A smart, protective cover to keep my phone safe.
If you do like these and would like one for yourself/gift they are available on my Etsy shop.
