Here’s a fun project I did over the holidays. As a gift I received a do-it-yourself iPhone case made to be cross-stitched with your own design—how cool is that? It's basically a plastic case with a grid of holes for stitching.
People who know me might know that I have a penchant for big old sailing ships, the pirate-y-er the better. So here's what I made:
I made blank grids as a template for myself so I could sketch out the design. After a few iterations, I was happy with it and got stitching.
There's something about the Christmas holidays that just makes me crave a needlework project! In fact I am pretty sure my in-laws assume I am cranking on some project at all times...While I wish I were that industrious, it's just that we mostly them on the holidays, they almost never see me without a needle in my hand. :-) In any case (oops, no pun intended), it was a perfectly-timed gift!
