iCrochet

Last week a friend asked me to crochet her an iPhone case (she used the word "commission" - how posh!?)

Well I had a 'Google' and eventually looked on Ravelry for some inspiration and here's the final piece...
My friend loves purple and it really didn't take much wool to make. A large glossy button finished it off.
I used this pattern to start off with and then busked the top bit where the loop is. I used 4.5mm hook and chunky wool - keeping the stitches tight. 

It came together very quickly.
This idea could be used for so many modern gadgets even a cushion cover!

  5. I love the colour. You have inspired me to make a replacement for my phone. My Mollie Makes phone cover has seen better days from too much use!

  7. That works really well. A nice cosy pouch for the phone and like you say it can be adapted for other uses.
