My little sister got an iPod from her boyfriend for x-mas and asked me to make a case for it. Here's what I came up with.



I knit the bag first, then felted this bad boy by hand. There are a few areas that didn't "felt" as evenly as the others (my hands couldn't handle the hot water, soap, and wool any longer), but it's more obvious in the picture than in real life. I've never really embroidered before and the owl turned out looking a bit cranky, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Just as I was thinking of creating a case for my mp3 player, I saw your post. Liked what you have done, and your post prompted me to stop thinking about making my own case and actually do it Smiley

I love the way it looks! The color, the bead and the owl all look great together!

What a neat little thing! I like the shape. Most iPod cozies are just a sleeve, but this looks like a little purse. Cute.

Very cute! This is possibly a stupid question, but you embroidered it after you felted it, right?

Yeah- I used a single ply of brown wool yarn (which kind of sucked because it kept breaking).
