It was my mum's birthday last week and I needed a present which would post easily. I heard she was getting an ipod (she's more technically up to date than I am now!) so I thought a little cosy to protect it on the move would be a nice thing to make. We have two grey cats at home who she spoils so I used them as inspiration.

I made it using only reused materials. The spotty lining was given to me by a lovely friend who was having a sort through her fabric stash and the grey felt came from a jumper which was accidentally put on a hot wash.

For once I actually remembered to take some in progress shots however I got a bit click happy and I don't want to overload you here! If you want to see all the photos visit my blog: http://pretty-green-blog.blogspot.com/2009/09/sleepy-cat-ipod-cosy.html




This little patch is a pocket for storing the headphones in!


Oh yes that is a hand-sewn button hole you see before you! In fact I ended up hand sewing everything because seams with the felt would have been too chunky. It was a very satisfying little project and thanks to the lack of sewing machine I could work on it outside in the sun!

That little embroidered face is adorable! And the headphone pocket was an awesome idea!
