I've been having technical difficulties lately. A few weeks ago I had some issues with e-mail and for the last month or so I've had issues with my phone.
I finally gave in and purchased a new phone and case (the old cases never fit new phones).
I wanted the sturdiest cover available but all the cases avialable were B-O-R-I-N-G. Even the flimsy cases were boring. I went ahead and chose the sturdiest case and on the way home I started to think of ways to personalize it.
After a couple of test covers, I came up with this.
I couldn't think of a better way to enjoy my Etsuko Furuya fabric!
I guess a purple background wasn't the best but you get the idea.
I love finding ways to use the salvage.
The front cover of the flip case slips into the fabric pocket just like a book jacket and the back is held secure by the phone after the it's snapped into the case.
It's a little loose when the cover is open but at least it hides all the black. The fabric jacket is a great place to tuck a few business cards or some mad money.
One thing's for sure, I can spot my phone from across the room and it will never be confused with any other phone.
I had so much fun making it that I just might have to make a matching laptop cover!
What have you personalized lately?
