You consider your phone to be an on-the-go command center: It schedules your appointments, logs your notes, reminds you about your to-do's, and notifies you about missed calls and text messages. It's entirely customized to you. So shouldn't your case, charger, and other extra accessories be personalized as well?
Give your gadget a handmade makeover; starting with a perforated case, print out a pattern. (You can also print a blank grid template and create your own design.) Then, try backstitching or cross-stitching.
