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
- Rubbing alcohol
- Cotton swab
- Soldering iron
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!
