When we got my daughter a leapster it was obvious that we needed to get her a pair of headphones. And by obvious I mean she would turn the volume all the way UP and even after repeated requests to turn it down, the volume always seemed to creep back up.  I told my husband we should get her these nifty kid safe headphones.  The volume can't go past a reasonable level even for kids' ears. Perfect, or so I thought! They work great, but had this flimsy foam around the ear parts, notice i said had. Needless to say within 2 days the foam was ripped off and she had deemed the headphones "broken".   The husband was NOT happy with my purchase and I was not happy because she was now refusing to use them.  Well, I decided to try crocheting her some covers for them. The crocheting part was easy, the fitting the covers to the earphones was the hard part. I had to unscrew 4 screws on each side and then tie the cover underneath and screw it back together. I am hoping it holds together because she is gonna need these things for the move. So here is my handy work. I used DMC thread in 2 colors and a tiny hook.






Anyway, it doesn't look great, but it'll do!

Not swearing at the machine? Not doing it right.

This is so smart! At my house the kiddie headphones are missing the foam covers too. This is a perfect solution and who knows how many your creativity will keep out of the landfills!  Smiley
