I embroidered this up on a whim, basically just because I love old cassette tapes. But now I have no idea what to do with it. It looks kinda boring in a frame or hoop and I don't know if I need another zipper pouch. Help me out please?!

How big is it? I think it would make an awesome iPod cover!

I've got two thoughts if you want to display it and don't mind adding more embroidery.  Since you've already got the cassette tape, you could add the ribbon tape and make it more interesting.

Ideas:

I love your work so far though!  Hope that helps!

Oh oops, I forgot to say, it is about 4in x 6 in. So too big for my iphone and too small for my kindle. :/

You could use it as a patch on clothing or on a bag.
Nice embroidery job!

Oh I especially like the idea of using it as an applique! I don't know why I didn't think of that. Maybe I will make a bag to put it on.

You could make a cute wallet out of it? the holidays are coming up and it'd make an awesome present Smiley

I was also going to suggest the bag applique idea Smiley you could even applique it onto a tshirt and add stuff which goes beyond the outlines of the fabric to encorporate it into the tshirt a lot more and make it look like less of an add on Smiley
could do rainbow ribbons etc coming out of it like suggested before
would look cute ^.^
