If you were the happy owner of an Android HTC Evo 4G, and were looking diligently for a cute phone case, you would very likely be frustrated. Because there aren’t any cute ones–at least not that I could find. The iphone seems to have a tight grip on the market for cool cases, apparently we Androids aren’t worthy of all that awesomeness.
My sweet hubby bought me one when I first got the phone, but (for some reason) I wasn’t entirely bummed when it (mysteriously) broke a couple months later (jk Allan, Twinkle really did break it). While looking for a replacement I decided that modge podging was my only real option. I bought a cheap, white, hard case as well as 1/8 of a yard of a Kaffe Fasset stripe. It was a mess, and at first I didn’t think it would work. But then it did, and I liked it.
In a few words, here’s how it went: I cut the fabric larger than the case, modge podged it on, and smoothed it over all the curves. I then let it dry completely, then exacto’d around the edges and holes. After that I just slapped on a few more coats of the good stuff and that was it.
I think it will hold up nicely, but it has kind of a scratchy texture that I don’t love. I have a thing about that…I also don’t like the feel of my callused heels on expensive sheets. Give me lesser-thread-count sheets or give me death!
