I know this blog needs a serious update soon, but I'm just going to make a quick post about my updated phone case instead.
Early this year I bought a case off amazon for my iPhone. The Cross Stitch Silicone Case for iPhone 4 is a rubbery phone case with a 43x22 grid on the back for cross stitching. (There is also an alternative Cross Stitch iPhone case kit on amazon that is a harder plastic with a 71x35 grid). I bought the first one because it was cheaper but if I buy a second one in a different color I'll probably give the hard shell a try.
The size of the grid is the only thing limiting the customization of my phone case. Finding patterns that are 22 stitches or less in width can be a little challenging. This little rose was the first pattern I used. Now that I think about it, I must have had that design on my case for almost half a year :\ I guess it really was time to redo it, oh well. This time I wanted to do an image that was a little more fun. I chose Spike from My Little Pony because a) he's super cute, and b) I found this picture of a perler bead project someone made which I copied to make my cross stitch chart. He's super tiny, measuring just 17x29 stitches, so he fit on my iPhone case perfectly :)
I hope all you bronies and pegasisters love it as much as I do. And if anyone knows of anything else that could translate well into a tiny cross stitch pattern then please let me know! Thanks for looking.
