I love making these!  Cheesy Still figuring out how to handle the bias-tape the best, but it`s getting better with each item...

Fabrics are from my Amy Butler stash, you don`t need that much of it, so it`s great for using scraps.







Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

Nice! And I like the fabrics. Great way to use up some scraps indeed. I keep seeing cool Touch cases and now I really need to either (a) get a LOT better at sewing and make one or (b) give in and buy myself one. Wink Everyone is making such neat styles, I love it!

Love the fabics and such a good way to use up every bit. It looks like you are using ready-made/packaged binding but if you wanted to make your own out of fabric Heather Bailey has a tute. It wouldn't really work for the ready made stuff unless you ironed it flat then folded it in half. But making your own would be easy enough - particularly since you only need small amounts - and would also use up scraps.

those are fabulous.  how about rounding the corners?  bias tape is designed to do curves well, then you wouldn't have to mitre the corners.

did you use a tute and if so, would you share?  i probably have enough various scraps to make enough to have one for each device for each day of the year (yeah, i'm one sick bitch).

Thank you all!  Cheesy

@elijor: great link, thanks! But to be honest, most of the times I`m just too lazy to make my own band. But I will definitly try it out.

@helenleeks: Rounding the corners would be a great idea. I will try it out today. I haven`t used a tutorial, but I can make one, if you want. I tried different ways of putting them together, until I finally came up with these. So I guess, after gettin so many great inspirations here on craftster, I could give something back  Grin

@phoenixfiredesigns & TwizditBlood: Thank you!

Ok, so I made another one today and took pics along the way - but watch out, it`s piczilla  Grin

First of all, cut out your pieces, one fabric, one lining. For the ipod cozys I used 33 x 13 cm, but you can just make that fitting for your cell.



Attach the soft side of the velcro on the good side of the lining:



Sew the pieces good sides together. Keep the short side where you`ve put on the velcro, open and sew the other three sides.



Now cut out your batting, slightly smaller than your fabrics: (Don`t mind mine, it`s wonky Cheesy )



Now take the batting and put it on the pieces, you will be turning it inside out now.



You should now have something like this:



Attach the other part of the velcro and fold the piece into the size you want it to be:



Cut out two pieces of bias tape. One for the short side and one for the whole thing (plus 4 cm) (I did not meizure that out, just layed the tape around the cozy and added a good piece)



Attach the shorter bias tape:



Attach the rest around the cozy, and voila, you are done!



Hope  that was clear (sorry for the bad pics, my hubby promised to get the frekkin camera fixed this week) , if there are any questions, just let me know! And I would love to see your finished results! Grin

Thank you! And it is. The only hard part is getting the bias tape on without making it look wonky.  Grin
