DIY Chewbacca iPhone Case
I’m finally starting to get back on track with everything. It’s been such a crazy couple of weeks, but now that I’m some what caught up, I have a lot of projects to share with you. Starting with the case I made for my iPhone.
SUPPLIES
  • black/brown phone case (you can get them for $5 at Big Lots or 5 Below)
  • dark brown felt
  • light brown felt
  • grey felt
  • scissors
  • super glue
I don’t have any step by step pictures, because honestly it’s pretty self explanatory. However I do have two methods of doing this. There’s the way I made mine, and then there’s the way that I think would be much quicker and easier.
What I did was trace my case onto the dark brown felt, then cut it out to glue on the back of the case. This proved to be a little more difficult than I imagined since felt tends to stretch and pull as you work with it so it took me a while to actually cut out a piece that fit nicely onto the case.
What I think might be easier to do is super glue a big piece of dark brown felt on first then trim around the edges to fit. I can’t say for sure this will work, but in my head it seems like an easier solution.
Once you get that piece cut, the rest is just cutting and gluing the remaining pieces on. I didn’t bother measuring anything to be an exact size (obviously), but feel free to do so if you want a cleaner look.

Then snap it on and show everyone just how much you love Star Wars.
