I traded in my ipod touch for an ipod nano and suddenly my ipod touch sleeve was useless, so I made this one for the tiny, tiny nano.

The image is a pattern I devised from the awesome smiley.

The clip of the nano runs through a hole in the sleeve, and the sleeve wraps around the front and is secured on the other side of the nano with the clip.  Ingenious!

There's not much room for a picture, so a simple pattern looks best; video game sprites, emoticons, and quotations all look pretty good.

Bonus: all the buttons and inputs are free while the sleeve is on, and using the touchscreen is still easy.

This is the first one I made before perfecting the design.

They're lined with some thin fabric I have to prevent the thread from fraying and to keep the thread from leaving marks on the touchscreen (not a big deal because the marks just wipe right off, but they were annoying).

Tell me what you think!
