The phone case is beautifully made and the fabric feels nice to hold - different than most plastic or rubber iphone cases.

About

Fabric iPhone Cases: Textured, Colourful and Organic

Whats Modish Laundry?

My shop name comes from my process work. When I bring home fabric scraps, often times they are in bad shape. I would wash and iron them, trim bad portions off and fold them nicely. I felt like I was doing laundry.

Fabrics are from a very old kind of art. To make them part of a phone case, a progressive product, was an interesting idea to me. Modish is an old English word for stylish or trendy which I thought was very appropriate for the combination of materials I was working with.

How did I start?

When I graduated from school last year I had a bunch of leftover fabric pieces from my days as an interior design student. These upholstery scraps were so pretty and well made, I wanted to use them for something but didn't know what.

At first I made them into bows and flowers to wear but it didn't feel as though I was using the printed patterns as they should be seen. To make the flowers, I had to cut up the fabric into little pieces to sew together. In the end I couldn't see the patterns that I had admired in the first place. This was when I decided an iPhone case would be a good way to display the beautiful fabric swatches. Every case would be a different fabric scrap that I had found.

Where do I find my fabrics?

It depends on the season. Sometimes it's an upholstery showroom or the back room of a fabric store. My collections range from large discontinued samples to bolt ends to garment factory remnants. Once in a while I will buy fabric when I see something cute.

Where do I make them?

I work on a table beside my bed. It's not a large area but it is cozy and I can work in my PJ's when I feel like it. My bedroom has always been my art studio since I was little and I find it calming and assuring to work surrounded by all the important things in my life.

How do I make them?

Every case starts as a thin clear case which I mold a piece of fabric on top of. After folding down on the sides and letting it dry, I get to work on trimming all the edges. I seal all free edges to prevent fraying of the fabric during use. I finish off with a spray silicone sealant as protection against minor liquid spills.

Why do I craft?

When I was small, art was always a huge interest for me. However, with the pressures of school while growing up, I did not get the chance to practice like I wanted. In my last year of high school, I was overwhelmed with academic expectations and made a u-turn toward my first love; art and design. When I finally picked up a pencil after all these years with the intention to create art, not to crunch numbers or proofread an essay, I drew amazing things as if I never stopped drawing at all. I made a late application into design school and received early acceptance. Imagine my surprise!

Art school turned out to be tough and traumatic (think angry critiques) and nowadays I'm making a recovery through crafting. It's simple and therapeutic; a way to practice art and design while making a productive escape from my day job as a drafts person.

    I dream to one day own a brick and mortar shop. I'll just start here with a teeny one on Etsy. My first step of many.
