Bit Bead iPhone 5/5S Case: Personalize it Bead by Bead

by Lambert Varias

We’ve seen a couple of iPhone cases that can be personalized by cross-stitching. Ross McBride’s Bit Bead case for the iPhone 5 and 5S has a similar design but it uses fuse beads, making it easier to customize.

The Bit Bead kit comes with the case, a pegboard, three frames and 1,000 heat-fusible beads in 16 colors. Ross set up a web app that contains a virtual Bit Bead to make it easier to try out your design. One of the downsides of the case is that its 13mm thick, nearly double the thickness of the iPhone 5S. The other downside is of course that it will probably be incompatible with the iPhone 6.

Melt a bead browser and pledge at least £20 (~$34 USD) on Kickstarter to get a Bit Bead kit as a reward. As for me, I’ve relied on accidentally dropping and scratching my phone for years to give it a personal touch.
