TARDIS iPhone Case Cross-Stitch Pattern

TARDIS iPhone Case Cross-Stitch Pattern | The Zen of Making

I’ve been on a huge Doctor Who kick lately. So, when I ordered my new iPhone a few weeks ago, I knew that I needed to make a seriously geeky case to celebrate my love for both David Tennant and my shiny new phone. So, I did what any reasonable girl would do: I bought a cross-stitch iPhone case and designed a TARDIS cross-stitch pattern!

TARDIS iPhone Case Cross-Stitch Pattern | The Zen of Making

Here is an up close look at the detail work in the pattern. Please note that some of the lines in the windows, the sign, and the “Police Box” lettering are stitched off of the grid and create extra holes in the case. (The case is soft—you can stitch right though it.) If you don’t want to alter the case, you can replace the lettering with white Xes and move the window lines and sign lines to fall over existing holes.

**Please note that this pattern was designed for the Taylor X Stitch Case for iPhone 4 and 4S, which has a 22x 43 grid. Because this is a silicone case, you can stitch through areas outside of the grid. This may not be the case with other cross-stitch iPhone case brands.**

  1. This is very, very cool. thanks for sharing it. I have saved the pattern and hopefully I'll have a reason to use it when I have a chance to update my current iPhone.

  2. I just completed mine! Thanks for the amazing tutorial. I have 1 question, (this is my first cross-stitch attempt) My case is warped now, it's not laying flat & has rippled a bit. Any suggestions? Did I do it too tight? 


  3. I'm glad you liked the pattern! As far as the warping, it does sound to me like it's a bit tight. You can try stretching it a bit by running a mild detergent and water over it, rinsing it completely, then pressing it flat. (If you have something heavy to keep it flat while it's drying, that's even better.) Good luck!

  4. Thank you thank you thank you!! I got a new phone too and I’m stitching this wonderful pattern right now! Thanks so much for sharing it, I love it to bits. (My message ringtone is the tardis appearing sound, and imagine the effect when my phone is in this case!)

  5. I adore this so much! I just bought my frist iPhone cross stitch case & I’m planning to use your pattern for it. Can you tell me the specific floss colors you used?
