Handmade Highlights is a new bi-weekly series that I’ll be doing to showcase some of the best iPhone and iPad products from independent artists, crafters, and designers, who often don’t get the recognition that they deserve. There are some great mainstream cases out there, but often, if you want something unique and a bit different, handmade is the way to go. This week, I’m sharing these ridiculously cute owl cases from Etsy seller Ohmycake, who is a talented lady indeed, and definitely knows the secret to selling products - but a bird on it! Each of these cases, which can be purchased for the iPhone or the iPad, is hand cut and hand sewn from felt. This talented craftster can make one of these sleeves for any size iPad or iPhone, and she’s even able to accomodate one of Apple’s Smart Covers or other similar thin device covers. iPad and iPhone sleeves from a different Etsy seller, which are priced between $69 and $76. The fox sleeve looks meticulously crafted, as does the penguin. In my humble opinion, no manufactured sleeve looks even remotely impressive as these designs.
