Because I've seen so many people doing it lately, I thought it might be good to post a little warning about this.

Be aware that using fleece as the interior layer for a cover for any laptop or electronic device can cause major issues. It can create static electricity and elicit a charge that can seriously injure your MP3 player, computer, etc and the information you hold dear. This is true whether or not your laptop is on! It also conducts heat, which is never good for electronics.

In addition to this, ANYTHING that can cause a static charge, like putting your laptop on the carpet to use, or laying your iPod on a fleece blanket etc, can do the same.

Many commercial bags and cases use fleece, so a number of people think that it's okay, but it *is not* and can completely ruin your stuff.

maybe stupid question, but does that apply to cellphones cases just the same?  i imagine it does... (>_<)

Wow, I did not know about the fleece lining problems... I should probably switch to flannel or something? I've had my laptop in a fleece-lined case for AGES and never noticed any problems, and my ipod has been living in one of these for quite some time as well. Huh.

And yes, I did make up my own pattern... lots of guess-and-test. Wink

hey i don't know how common it is to find it in stores, but there is a kind of 100% cotton fleece... isn't it called French Terry or something?  probably it's not common because it's not stretchy like regular fleece, and because it's heavier when wet... but maybe you could find something made out of it to cut up.

I know that Better Homes and Garden has a similar tutorial.  It is at  http://www.bhg.com/crafts/sewing/accessories/diy-ipod-case/.  I just have never tried it.

Those are cute. I'd consider upgrading to a better closure though. Velcro picks up all sorts of stuff on the bottoms of bags and set in snaps look a lot more professional.

They're adorable. I LOVE the outside pocket for headphones. I would add a stretchy pocket with mesh for my SD cards, though.

They're very cute.  I've been wanting to do one forever, but I want one where I can use the spin wheel & buttons while it's in the case.
