Simon has had his new phone for a few months now but has been using his old knitted (or actually, my old knitted) phone cover which wasn’t quite long enough. So, for our anniversary, I decided to surprise him with a new custom made one.
He’s been asking for me to knit a cover with an android logo on it for a while now but I’m afraid I wimped out and went for the trusty felt and cross stitch option instead:
This is my little graph paper plan of the Android logo.
I then cut out cross stitch fabric according to my pattern. I pinned and tacked the fabric in place and then cross stitched my Android according to my pattern.
The lining I’ve used is actually an old pencil case that I ruined by leaving it on the windowsill next to a candle… I cut out two rectangles the size of simon’s phone and used running stitch to attach them to the felt.
I then made sure the phone fit inside the case and sewed both sides together leaving a .5cm space along the edge for blanket stitching.
