I should have taken WIP pics, but I couldn't find my camera until after I had finished. But I basically took my headphones and knit the long cord into a rectangle for my shuffle. I had to add an extension to make it long enough- you can sort of see that along the side. Then I sewed up the sides with speaker wire- and viola! All in one!

I was inspired by an art project I once where someone had knit clothing from speaker wire. I wanted something that would be a bit more functional for my walk to work every morning- so this is what I came up with. I would like to buy more extension cord and make an actual bag eventually I think.

Edit- I added more pics and tried to get my cat to pose- but he didn't want to co-operate at all. Wink

That's awesome, I never would have thought of that. It looks cool and unique and also seems like it would do a good job of keeping it safe, much better than the flimsy fabric ones I have seen, anyways.

I wish!

No, that's just gold speaker cable and the gold plug on the extension part. But that would be sweet. Hmmmm...... Wink

They used to make gold/copper colored minis...they were kind of ugly so maybe that's why they don't make them anymore.

I'm constantly fighting with all that extra cord from my headphones - this is such a great idea for getting it out of the way.
