Well, this is the height of joblessness. I asked a couple of stores if they had a cover that would fit my phone and all of them seemed to have only those leather covers which serves no purpose really. (And I hate it when people put that pouch through their belts. Not very convenient if you ask me.) Thankfully, most of my trousers have a cell phone pouch inside the pocket so that your phone doesn’t fall out.
I am sure it’s available in some store somewhere. Maybe I should check out a few cell phone stores and also Odyssey and Mercy.
In the meantime , I thought I needed a cover for now. So I decided to make my own cover. After a bit of thinking over what material to use, I narrowed down to the cloth you get with your shades/spectacles. These are really soft and hence will not scratch you phone. I have a couple of them that came with my shades, but I was not going to use them. So I decided to go purchase it from a shop. Read about that in my next post.
Hand stitched Cell Phone Cover:
Firstly, I know it’s not great. Maybe it’s not even good. So save the ‘it looks lame’ comments.
Anyway, here’s the end product. I stitched it myself (I learnt stitching when I was in boarding school. 🙂 ) and intentionally used a thread colour that stood out. (I did have the same matching shade of yellow thread as well. ) I wanted to use twine actually, but then didn’t find a big enough needle at home.
Other Future Refinements:
Right now this is meant to protect the phone when it’s not in use from dust and scratches. Later on, I think I’ll add a window for the screen, the buttons and the camera. That way I can have it permanently on. Or, wait I could actually buy one by then. 😀
