Halloo there!

So, I just finished making my fourth iPod case.  I had made the other three for friends, relatives, etc. but I wanted one myself.  California Poppies are my favorite flower, and my name starts with 'A', so what better case to make than one with poppies and an "a"?

Here are some pics to show you the full case, flower detail, etc.  I was going to add a silk poppy to the front, but I decided it would be better to make one out of felt and sew it on.  I built the petals gradually by cutting out triangles, crazy stitching the end, and then sewing them onto a common center.

(Sorry the pics are a bit fuzzy!)
