When it comes to cross-stitch and embroidery, I’ve always been drawn to geometric and repeating patterns, especially those found in styles like laid work and blackwork. I love how, when joined together, even the simplest lines and shapes can create rich, vibrant textures on an otherwise unremarkable surface. (It’s kind of like quilting in that way: you piece one quilt block at a time, then those blocks seem to magically transform into something completely different when sewn together in a finished quilt.) I really like the idea that surprisingly intricate designs can be constructed by combining individual elements in predictable yet creative ways, and that’s exactly what I had in mind as I designed this geometric color block cross-stitch iPhone case pattern.
When stitching my case, I used my favorite primary color scheme: blue and red. Not a fan? Don’t let that scare you away! You can always customize the colors in the pattern to fit your own personal style.
