DIY - Bohemian iPhone case tutorial. How to create a beautiful iPhone case from a small piece of leather and some crocheted lace. @ By Wilma

I finally got an iPhone last week. I love what I can do with it. The pictures are so much better than the ones I took with my old (just a few months) smartphone! I really like to keep it that way. That’s why I decided I needed a really cute and functional iPhone case. Of course this would work for any phone. This cute bohemian style iPhone case is made from a small piece of leather I had lying around. You could use some leather out of an old bag or clothing item.

Learn how to make this cute bohemian style iPhone case after the jump. . .

What you need for this bohemian style iPhone case

– pieces of leather
– one piece of white crocheted lace from 6 1/2 inch long

How to make this bohemian style iPhone case

1. Decide on how big you want your iPhone case to be and cut out two rectangle pieces of leather in that size.
2. Put the two pieces of leather on top of each other and use your Cropodile to punch holes at both sides and the bottom of the case.
3. Use your yarn to stitch through the holes all around the iPhone case.
4. Cut a piece of leather big enough to be the closure. You have to be able to fold the leather behind the button so the back of the button will not be visible. You need to be able to fold it until it reaches the top of the iPhone case. Make two small holes with your Cropodile and put one side of your magnetic button  in. Glue the folded leather on top of each other with the fabric glue.
5. Because my leather already had a hole in it I decided to do some stitches on top of the closure. You can do this by making holes with your Cropodile. Stitch with the white cotton yarn. Glue the closure on the back of you iPhone case with your fabric glue.
6. Put the other side of the magnetic button  on the button that’s already on the closure and push down. Now you should have a small imprint where the button should go. Make two small holes with your Cropodile and push the button through it. Glue a piece of fabric on the back of the button to make sure that the button won’t scratch your iPhone.
7. Use the fabric glue to glue on the cotton lace.
8. And your Bohemian style iPhone case is ready to use!

    I’ll NOT be making use of lay a way at Walmart. I want to buy what I want and not really need to fret if it meets a 15 dollar minimum per item. I would prefer to shop for my Grandkids. Pajamas etc. If I buy PJ’s a
    robe and slippers, that is way a lot more than 15 bucks per gift.
    So I’ll store Sears or Kmart if I will need a layaway. Kmart has it On the internet. It is possible to Shop online, spend on the internet and then select up inside a shop.

    I had no clue that temporary tattoos could possibly
    be used for things other than skin! I believe it might be enjoyable
    to add them to tile.
