Our Grinch phone case is the second in our series of Christmas phone cases! How the Grinch That Stole Christmas is such a heartwarming story, so that’s the character that inspired our second holiday crochet phone case.

This free crochet frog pattern came about one night while watching The Orville. I couldn’t help but notice the Frog leaned up against the desk light on captain Ed Mercer’s desk because he always steals the scene!
