Want to Mustache up your day? This case will do just that :)
So I've seen some mustache Ipod cases and wanted one. I had some leather from a leather jacket and wanted to glue it on. My glue didn't work, I could just peel the Mustache off. Maybe E6000 will work, but I haven't tried it out, you can't buy that glue here where I live, I'll have to buy it online at some point :P So I came up with this, you can just sew it on. It will take up more time but it was worth it ^^

  • How to make a phone case. Leather Mustache Ipod Case - Step 1
    Step 1

    First gather all you materials.
    You'll need:
    - A case for your mobile phone or any device really
    - Some Leather, or any material you want
    - A mustache pattern or any pattern that you want, as long as it fits on the case
    - A marking tool, I used chalk
    - Scissors
    - A needle
    - A straight pin
    - Strong thread, I used lika a kind of carpet thread, thin crochet thread will work too

    Step 2

    First, trace your pattern on the back side of you leather, I used chalk because it's shows up nicely on the leather :P

    Step 4

    If you have a good glue that works you should just "paint" the back of your cut out shape and glue it on and you would be done. But my glue didn't stick to the silicone so I used a different method.

    Now just punch holes about 1/8" appart just a little from the edge. You could use a needle or straight pin to do this.

  • Step 5

    Now just sew your pattern right on the case with a backstitch.

    Check this video to see how to do the backstitch:

    You don't have to punch holes in the silicone because they will kind of dissapear. You can just sew right through it, it's really soft and easy to sew through.

    Note: Cut enough thread so you don't have to tie on new string. And when you start sewing, leave a tail, you will tie the end tail to this tail at the end to secure.

    Step 6

    I found that if you have to get your needle up from the back to the front, it's best to first poke your needle through from the front so you can see a little mark on the inside of the case. Then you know where to put your needle in from the back, and just search for the leather hole a bit. It's very do-able :P

    You can see that little white dot on the left just above that point of stitches, that's what you'll see.

    When you're done sewing, just tie the two ends of string together and trim it down.
    Here's what the back looks like.
