Makeful Challenge: Cellphone Cases from

Stitched Phone Case

I knew right away I was going to try to stitch on my phone case. When I received the case it was just after the Orlando club shooting and it was pride month in Toronto, so I decided to go with something representative of that. I used a soldering iron to make holes to stitch through. It was my first time using this tool and it was really fun!


  • Phone case
  • Fine tip permanent marker
  • Grid paper
  • Tape
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Cotton swab
  • Soldering iron
  • Knife

How to make it

Step 1: Cut grid paper to the size of the phone case.

Step 2: Draw out your stitch pattern on the grid paper.

Step 3: Tape the paper to the inside of the case

Step 4: Draw over the pattern onto the phone case with a fine tip permanent marker.

Step 5: Remove the tape and heat up your soldering iron.

Step 6: Touch the iron to the phone case where stitching holes are required.

*iron is very hot. Do not place on or near paper or any flammable materials.

Step 7: Carefully use a knife to cut off plastic blobs from the previous process.

Step 8: Use Rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab to remove any excess markings.

Step 9: Stitch your pattern!
