A while back, my friend Ines sent me a gift for no reason. It was so perfect and thrilled me so much that I wanted to do something for her in return. I thought about it for a little while. Ines loves her iPhone and she has very clearly defined branding for her blog, Miamism. iPhone + Miamism = tropical orange mojito phone case.
Well, in my head that all made perfect sense.
I traced around my iPhone, added a little extra for the seam and cut out my interior and exterior felt. Then I had to do a little research on mojitos to learn I needed some lime and mint in there. (I didn’t have my first mojito until later, happily with Ines!) I thought it was better to suggest the color of the drink with embroidery floss rather than colored felt, since it’s a pale drink. For a first attempt at a felt beverage, I think it went pretty well. Ice cubes are tricky!
I kept an opening in the bottom so she could use her headphones while the phone was in its case.
And the reverse side features a Miamism “M”, traced directly from the her blog.
The opening is held closed with a couple pieces of Velcro. I’ve made some more phone holders since, but I think the one for Ines was the most fun. Doesn’t it just look happy? No wonder people love Miami!
This is so cool. How special you made this for her. You are certainly the creative one. ;?)
and it’s my favorite case ever!!! my iphone feel so comfy and at home :) (you are da’bomb Sarah)
