Uhm, the pattern calls for a 3/16" hole punch, but that is mighty big, should it be 1/16" like the template shows or is the template labelled "actual size" off a bit?

I'm just confused.  I got a 3/16" hole punch but it would only had room for 7 holes across the top.  But if I used a 1/16" punch I would probably have room for the called for 13 holes across the top.  I also made the vinyl a little bigger because I have a 5thGen Ipod....and it still only had enough room for 7 holes on top.

Did I not read something right?

It seems like that the pattern is wrong saying that it should be 3/16. I used a sewing tool that punches holes in fabric for buttons (I forget the official name for it) and the size came out perfect.

EDIT: this is what I used

Here's the thing. I bought a hole punch marked 3/16. Spent three whole dollars on it. It's huge, much bigger than the holes on the page. I should have actually measured the thing before buying the hole punch, since the paper template is clearly labeled "actual size". It's 1/16 of an inch. I either have to get back to a craft store soon, or my husband was going to plug in a power tool and drill the darn thing. I have a new iPod in an old broken JamJacket from the old iPod, so I really want to make this project!

I finally broke down and went to buy a 1/16" hole punch....worked MUCH better.....now I just need to figure out how to adjust the pattern a smidge to fit the Video Ipod.

Panda, the pattern we're talking about is in The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller.

I have concluded that the gods are conspiring against me. After far too long, I finally had a sheet of vinyl perfectly cut and perfectly perforated. You know, it's not a good idea to walk around with a small clear piece of vinyl around a messy house while one is doing the mommy multi-tasking thing. Yep, I can't find it. And my house is a giant mess; it's like a needle in a haystack to find it at this point. Well, at least I have more vinyl.

Thank you.  I just recieved my Happy Hooker this week.  Working on one project now.

Dominique,  I made one up the other day but it didn't fit my Ipod as I knew it wouldn't, so I tossed it.  But it worked up in about an hour and ahalf very easily and that was WITH distractions.  So go for it! 

Panda, beware that there are other projects in the Happy Hooker that will suck you in, too! Smiley
