Retired - Beaded Stars Cell Phone Case

PROJECT C1026
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
The whole surface of this iPhone case is covered in shimmering, tiny beads! Give your phone a lux, eye-catching look.
Instructions
While the technique used in this project is relatively simple, keep in mind, it is a very time consuming process.
  1. Before you begin, watch the instructional video: How to Stitch a BeadlePoint Cell Phone Case. This video will demonstrate the technique used to stitch the beads onto your case, and how to start and end your threads.
  2. This project uses the "Rock Star" pattern from the BeadlePoint template booklet. Instead of using the colors listed in the booklet, I've chosen a silver lined dark aqua for the background that matches my light blue case. I'm using a shiny white instead of matte white, and a pretty silver lined purple instead of matte lavender. When following the pattern, simply substitute your colors for the ones shown.
  3. Using the technique demonstrated in the video, start at the top left corner of the case and pattern and fill in according to the pattern. As you work, you'll need to tie off and add new thread as shown in the video.
