We’ve featured a ton of cases just for the iPhone 4. Some of them provide extra protection, some of them add functionality or power, while some are just plain fancy. But I think it’s safe to say that many iPhone owners buy a case for its looks or design, or at least to personalize their gadget. If you’re one of those people, you should check out the Neostitch case.
Made by Connect Design, Neostitch cases have patterned weaves in them, just like the aida cloths that are traditionally used in cross-stitching. In fact, that’s exactly what you’re supposed to do with the case – cross-stitch on it. It even comes with a needle and three threads so you can get started right away. There are even sample patterns on its product page so you can start stitching even if you don’t have an idea for a design yet.
You can order the Neostitch from Connect Design’s online shop for only $18 (USD). That’s a low price for what is practically an infinite number of designs. There are only two things that will determine how long you’ll keep using the case – your creativity and the compatibility of the case with the next iPhone model.
