I recently got an iPod a few weeks ago, & it's already all scratched up. I guess I'm too late in making this to save my poor iPod, but it's still great. Smiley



The front:


The back:


Opened:


Window:


Earphone pocket:


I'm thinking of adding some embroidery, but I haven't attempted that before & I don't know of what.

If you've ever seen any of my other projects, you'll know that I've come out with results that I love after making several mistakes. Well, it's no different here.

I didn't plan it out too well, so what I started out with after the cutting & sewing was a big long sock-like pocket. So, I improvised; I slid my iPod inside & cut one layer of the "sock" right above the top of my iPod, then folded & blanket-stitched (my first time hand-sewing ever) those raw edges. I then blanket-stitched the edges of the top flap & added a hole for the earphones to go in, & thought I was done; I decided I could add more. I cut out the window for the screen & blanket-stitched that as well. I then added the button on the back & ribbon for closure. As I was examining at what I had just made, I realized that the opposite side of the flap could be used as a pocket for the earphones, which is what I had been looking for before I started my cozy project, but came up with nothing suiting my taste.

I <3 mistakes.

Oooo I really like your iPod cozy! I know how you feel-mine got scratched after only a few days, I was going to buy an iSkin, but I found something very similar for $10 in a Deb store at the mall....I would totally suggest the rubber skin thing; not only does it prevent scratches, it gives it some cushioning if you put it in a purse with your stuff like I do bc I'm a student and bring it with me as my flash drive.

Again, lovely case, I might try making one myself, I love accessories!

That is so cute!  I'm in love with the fabric and the general colour scheme.

possibly-stupid-question alert:

what's a blanket-stitch?

or should i maybe just quit being lazy and google it?

-Haha, it's not a stupid question. A blanket stitch is the stitching I did around the edges of the window & the flap. I got the idea from LUBEE's iPod case (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=42994.0). & thanks for the compliments!

I like it. Super way of dealing with mistakes...making new ideas, like the earphone pocket. Good work, and it came out great!
