Ohmygoodness! I am so excited to be visiting here at the Polka Dot Chair. I sort of feel like Melissa and I go “;WAAAAY BACK.”; We don’;t…;Unless you’;re counting on blog years, and then? We’;ve practically known each other since birth! My name is Tauni. I host an annual event for craft and DIY bloggers called Snap and an online competition called So You Think You’;re Crafty.

Melissa is one of our stalwart Snap attendees and is helping us launch our sewing track this year, with a fun class. I can’;t wait to learn from her! When Melissa first told me about the Polka Dot Project, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. Seepersonalized teacher signs, I have been eyeing this lovely gold polka dot Kate Spade iPhone cover…;

BUT…;At about $40 I knew I could create something just as cute for 1/4 the cost! And so I did…;

To create your own DIY Kate Spade inspired iPhone cover, you’;ll need the following supplies:

I started by cutting out a quick polka dot template in vinyl on my Cricut.

If you don’;t have an electronic cutting machine, don’;t worry. You could use a small circle punch on vinyl, or you could even use the backing from a sheet of round dots or labels. Place your template on top of your phone, grab your paint pen and fill in the dots.

Once you’;ve filled in the polka dots, peel off your vinyl and ta da! You’;re done!

I had the hardest time trying to photograph the end result because the gold leafing from the paint pen is so shiny, but it looks A LOT like the Kate Spade version I almost bought in the store.

The best part? The whole project cost me under $10. Thanks for letting me share my fun polka dot projects. I hope you will come over to visit. Here are a few of my favorite posts..

Thanks for having me Melissa! I can’;t wait to see all of the other polka dot projects that will be featured this month.


To echo Tauni’;s previous sentiment, ohmygoodness!! I absolutely LOVE this idea! I had no idea that you could get a white iPhone case so inexpensively! This is so genius!! Thank you so much Tauni!Connect with me:

These are a great way to use old sweaters or revitalize an old scarf by adding pockets to the end. The pockets are great for holding keys, cell phones or just keeping your hands warm.Supplies1 old suit jacketsweatersbuttonslining fabric (I used fleece)sewing machineUse either coordinating sweaters or an old scarf. Cut off the ends of the jacket sleeves, mine average a finished length of around 9 inches. Cut them a little longer than you want so you can fold them down making a finished edge.

The Arts & Crafts movement was founded by a number of craftsmen, notably William Morris said “Have nothing in your home that you do not believe to be beautiful or useful" which was the mantra of Arts & Crafts furniture. Simple forms were used as their was no room for any additional decoration – natural materials were imperative, with their natural qualities being used as decorative features, such as the knots and grain of wood, along with exposed joints to show off the hand-worked crafts.

What better way to make your casserole dish easy to carry and keep it warm? This casserole carrier is a classic among my friends and family, and it is one of my "go to" wedding gifts. Over the years, I have used and tweaked different patterns until I now have the best yet. One of the features that I have added is being able to remove the carrying dowels because who doesn't need to wash something that food is carried in? I changed the placement of the velcro to accommodate variations in your pan size, and I skipped the quilting of the insulation to the fabric. You can also use it for cakes or brownies...anything that fits in your 9x13" pan. You can make it fairly plain (and personalize it if you have an embroidery machine) like the one shown here, or pick out any print you like. My instructions are simple, but you do need some basic sewing knowledge. A beginner should be able to make one of these. If you don't know how to sew, there are lots of online free sewing tutorials, so check them out. This instructable would be way too long if I try to teach you sewing basics.
