Title: TUTORIAL FINALLY ADDED!!!Happy Star Felt iPod Cozy For 3g (Super IMG Heavy)
Post by: moxie_d on November 08, 2007 08:57:55 AM
EDIT: I'm finally done with the tutorial!! Yay!! Thank you to everyone for all of the wonderful compliments and for being so patient with me  :-*


So I got the new nano for my birthday in October and found out that no one makes cases for this model yet :( So like any good craftster I took matters in to my own hands..

This is a lot of firsts for me...first post , first felt project, first iPod cozy....
I'm so excited with how it turned out that I had to share! I haven't picked up a needle and thread in years so please be kind on the stitching mistakes  ;D










Hope I did this right!

TUTORIAL

Before we get a move on with this, I wanted to let you know that this version is a little bigger than my first one. I wanted to solve the problem of storing the earbuds inside the pouch.



Problem solved  :)



So it's just a matter of preference. For larger go with the 1/2 inch measurement, for the smaller the 1/4 inch.

I use the white glue to tack My knots so they don't come unraveled  :)

You will need:




2 Pieces Yellow Felt
1 Piece Pink Felt (or scraps for cheeks)
DMC Yellow #972
DMC Pink #603
DMC Black #310
2 Black Beads or Buttons for Eyes
Embroidery Needle
Quilt Batting
White Glue
Scissors
Pencil
Painters Tape
Straight Pins
Your iPod or Mp3 Player you would like to use
Paper
Ruler
2 Snaps
50 Cent Piece
Star Shape

Edit: If you are making this without the aid of an iPod the 3g measurements are as follows-

Height: 2.75"
Width: 2.06"
Depth: 0.26"

Screen- 1.25" H x 1.75" W
Wheel - 1.10 x 1.10 (I noticed that if I placed a quarter flat and traced around it with the pencil straight up and down it was the right size if that makes it easier  :) )





Creating Your Pattern:

Print out the star shape and using you iPod/Mp3 player make sure that it is the right size. Be sure you have a minimum of 1/4 inch to a max of 1/2 inch clearance at the bottom and top 2 corners of your iPod



Use your 50 cent piece to round off the corners and cut out the shape







Trace your iPod/Mp3 face down on a piece of paper




Using your ruler, extend the top by 1 inch and sides by 1/4 inch. This will be your back flap. Cut out shape.




Place your iPod/Mp3 Player in the center of the paper star and mark the bottom edge. Lay your back flap on top of the paper star carefully lining up the bottom of the back flapapproximately half way between the mark you made and the bottom of the star.





Tape in place with the painters tape and flip over.  Use the edges of your star shape as a guide and trace along the corners of the rectangle sticking out. Cut off those corners.



Yay! Now you have a pattern  :)

Putting it all together:

Using the pattern that you just made, cut out :
4 Yellow felt stars
3 Quilt batting stars
2 Yellow felt back flaps
1 Quilt batting back flap



Center your iPod/Mp3 on one of the yellow felt stars and tape down with the painters tape



Flip over and trace the screen and touch wheel with a pencil. Cut out openings. Repeat this on one more yellow felt star and one quilt batting star.



Take the 3 star pieces that you just cut the openings in and stack together with the quilt batting star in the middle. Using 3 strands Of DMC yellow #972, Whip stitch around the window openings.



Using your iPod/Mp3 as a size reference, cut a rectangle out of your yellow felt that is the same height but 1/4 inch wider on each side.



Pick which side of your star has prettier stitching and mark that as your top with painters tape. Flip over and and place the rectangle you just cut out over you window openings. Line up the top of the rectangle with the top of the screen opening.and tape in place.



Stitch down each horizontal side only going through 1 piece of felt and leaving about 1/8 of an inch between the stitching and the window openings.  Slide your iPod/Mp3 in to check fit and set piece aside.





Take your 2 yellow felt back flaps and starting with either left or right side stitch up, across the top, and down the other side leaving the bottom open. Leaving your needle and thread attached insert your quilt batting back flap.



Take you star piece with the window openings and center the back flap over the windows top side facing the back flap. Be sure to leave enough space between the edge of the star and the flap for your final edge stitching. Stitch together only going through the top layer of felt.





Center one half of a snap over top of window and sew into place. Repeat with other half of snap on back flap.



You have finished the back half of your star! Set it aside and lets get the front done  :)

Cut 2 small circles from pink felt.



Take one of your remaining yellow felt stars and place your eyes and cheeks where you would like them to be and mark your places. Use a small amount of glue to tack down your cheeks.



Using 6 strands of DMC Pink # 603 such your cheeks into place.



Now sew on the eyes and mark the outline for your mouth with a pencil.



Stitch your mouth using 6 strand DMC Black # 310



stack your pieces in this order-
back piece with flap side down
plain yellow felt star
2 remaining quilt batting stars
face star with face side up



Pin together ad starting right above the outside edge of the inside pocket stitch all of the way around to the bottom half way point of your star. insert you iPod/Mp3 and check where your earbud cord placement.





after checking placement, continue stitching around the star point stitching together the top side only.



Continue around to the other outside edge of the inside pouch. Leaving thread and needle attached sew in snap. Continue sewing the edge the rest of the way around but make sure that it is only the face side leaving an opening for you to insert your iPod/Mp3 into the case.



Finish by going back and sewing remaining edges at the top and earbud openings.





Now after all of that work insert your IPod and enjoy!!!!! :D :D :D

I'm sitting here going, "Oh, oh, oh, oh...."  I just love it so much!  :D  I, too got an Ipod for my birthday last month...I have the same problem...need to make a cover!  ;D  This is so adorable and functional at the same time!  And what stitiching mistakes?  I sure didn't notice any.  Fantastic work and I'm sure you'll get requests from other Craftsters for a tut, or just requests from others about where they can buy this!  :D

*ps: what day was your birthday?  mine was the 8th  :)

Yay! I can finally post pics hence the edit and thanks so much for the compliments guys!

oooooo!!  soo creative and soo cute!!..it reminds me of the mario stars!!.. :D
I've been kind of Mario obsessed so his stars were totally my inspiraton..and I think I might try a cloud or mushroom next...and if I get really crazy maybe yoshi

I'm sitting here going, "Oh, oh, oh, oh...."  I just love it so much!  :D  I, too got an Ipod for my birthday last month...I have the same problem...need to make a cover!  ;D  This is so adorable and functional at the same time!  And what stitiching mistakes?  I sure didn't notice any.  Fantastic work and I'm sure you'll get requests from other Craftsters for a tut, or just requests from others about where they can buy this!  :D

*ps: what day was your birthday?  mine was the 8th  :)

lol I'm glad they don't show as bad as I thought they did! I litterally sewed and re-sewed that back flap on 4 different times trying to get it right.. I'm sure there must have been an easier way to do it...but I can never seem to do things the easy way ;D

*I was the 2nd but one of my best friends was the 8th*

That is so cute!  You should submit a picture of it to MacLife magazine, they give out prizes for the best Ipod cover every month.  I think you'd win.

Post by: Eliea on November 08, 2007 11:35:57 AM
the stitches are nice and neat! I'd never have guessed it was hand sewn by the stitches. Your attention to detail is awesome!
And I love how if fits. I personally dislike the plain "rectangle" cozy's and as such have never made one. Yours is great! I totally am inspired!
Since my mp3 player is a sansa I have yet to find a case for it. :)
Now what shape or critter do I need? lol!

Now you've got me contemplating making a happy little star to carry my phone in!  I only use the walkie talkie part, so it could work!

I think it's adorable!


Title: Re: Happy Star Felt iPod Cozy For 3g
Post by: moxie_d on November 08, 2007 04:08:02 PM
Holy Crap! You guys are awesome and thank you SO SO much...I ended up on the hot new projects and even got a "thats cool" from my totally uncrafty B/F  :D

I have to go out of town tomorrow, but I'm going to make another one on Monday so I can add a tutorial to this. I was trying to come up with one earlier, but I made this in such a random way and with so many re-dos that it didn't even make sense to me any more ::)


Title: Re: Happy Star Felt iPod Cozy For 3g
Post by: The Muffin on November 08, 2007 04:14:41 PM
Oh! This is so awesome. I'm totally stealing the idea and making my very own felt ipod holder (I have a mini).


Title: Re: Happy Star Felt iPod Cozy For 3g
Post by: KiwiDragons on November 08, 2007 04:15:01 PM
OK, now I totally need to get an iPod (or something like it) so I can make one of these to put it in!! It's so cute-and I'm all about the Mario, so that makes it extra special in my book!

I love this idea. The basic idea could be transferred to a ton of shapes too - a skull, heart, cloud, a balloon (with the headphones as the string)! I can't wait for a tut.

Also, it's a simple, cheap, GREAT idea for stocking stuffers!

Wonderful.

Very thoughtful design! I need to make one for my phone, all my cozies so far have been the take-it-out-to-use-it sort and I'd love to try a proper cozy-with-holes-for-screen/wires one. :) Would you mind elaborating on the flaps and openings? It's so clever. :D

good lord, if i had an ipod nano, i would probably want to make this.
the cuteness is just too much.
fairly neat, too, especially for a first project like this.

but alas, i don't like ipods. :/
might have to make one for my creative zen, though, but i'm hoping that it'll die soon so i can get a zune. XD

That is possibly the cutest iPod cover in existence. Seriously, you did an amazing job!

I'm going to beg my mom to make me one of these once you finish the tutorial! :) I'd do it myself, but, well, I'm, well...let's just say that I'm sewing-impaired.

Go figure....I can do all kind of crafty stuff they never even thought to teach in Home-Ec, but the one skill that I had to take THREE different classes on, I still can't do XD

Nice job, and super cute idea!

i got a nano in october? and mine sadly has scratches all over it, and i really wanted a case and all the new cases are like 25$.
so, im on my way to making one of these, i just need to buy some quilt batting.

This is my first ever post! I've never sewn anything in my life and tried this pattern and it worked great!
Mine's not as cute as yours though because I just worked with what my sister had instead of going out and buying pretty colors.
Oh and I skipped the batting too, the fleece I used was pretty thick.

I made one too!  I only used two pieces of batting - on star shaped on the face side, and one on the back flap, because it was very very thick quilting batting.

I love your star!!!  I have a question, are the earbuds and the ipod in the same opening?  or are they separated?  I was inspired by yours, here is what I came up with ...https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=98749&ppuser=90264

My stitches are definitely not perfect, this was my first real hand sewn attempt  at anything!!  And my first display here of anything I have made.

OMG!  :o That is cute! You did a great job on him!

To answer your question - it's not a separate pouch necessarily but they are behind the inside pouch that holds your ipod in place if that helps...

My daughter is running around getting the stuff together because she MUST make this immediately.

Still at the pattern stage, but I'm thinking about using fusible interfacing on the back of the star, mostly to stabilize that tiny strip between the screen and the dial.

Done!

I machine stitched mine using a blanket stitch.  The dark blue is a stiff felt with glitter embedded that gives the cover some body, but would be scratchy against the ipod.  We (dear daughter and I) decided to make ours able to open up flat.  It is stitched across the bottom to make a hinge.  The cord hole is just a slit cut in the felt.

I had to line the back pocket so the ipod wouldn't scratch against the dark blue star...the layers of the back are (from the inside out) light blue star, batting, dark blue star, light blue rectangle the same size as pocket, but stitched down around all four sides, dark blue pocket.

Ooo, this is really neat. I was looking at it thinking, "ooo, I almost wish I had one of the newest nanos so I could make this!" I've got a first gen video so I think making this exact pattern would be way too big. But this tutorial is really good so I think I could use it to make a different shape. my old iPod case is getting really boring. lol

I love your star!!!  I have a question, are the earbuds and the ipod in the same opening?  or are they separated?  I was inspired by yours, here is what I came up with ...https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=98749&ppuser=90264

My stitches are definitely not perfect, this was my first real hand sewn attempt  at anything!!  And my first display here of anything I have made.

Yeah, that is really cute. <3

OMG!  :o That is cute! You did a great job on him!

To answer your question - it's not a separate pouch necessarily but they are behind the inside pouch that holds your ipod in place if that helps...

Post by: KyotiUtsukushii on January 25, 2008 08:39:15 PM
WOW!  This is such a neat case, I knew I needed to have one as soon as I saw it.  I don't have an iPod, but I did just get a new cell phone.  I modified this a little to make it fit a cell phone (a nice, thin Razr so it's not too bulky like my old phone would have been), with the flap opening so I can see my screen when someone calls and a small loop at the top that I attached a clip to so I can hang it from my purse.  My first one didn't turn out that great--it was my first real crafty project--but I'm working on a second one now that is coming out much better.  This beautiful cozy also got me obsessed with stars, so now I'm finding a way to work stars into just about all of my projects!
Fantastic idea!!  One of the best projects I've seen on all of Craftster, and a very thorough tutorial!

Thi sis a freaking SUPERFANTABULOUS tutorial! And the idea alone is awesome! I've been looking for a case for my new iPod as well, but they either cost too much or look really cheap.

I have a bunch of fabric so I will mix things up, but the idea and how you put this all together is fabulous!

Update on the blue star:  after a week of use, we start to see flaws in our mod  :)

I need to add either  another snap, velcro, or a flap to keep the ipod in the pocket.  Now I see that on the original design, the headphone holder snaps across the top of the pocket to keep the ipod from falling out.  (Smart)

The two stars tend to squish apart.  I think this is going to create a great deal of strain on the tiny little snap that is supposed to hold the whole thing together.  Velcro?  Bigger snap? 

I do like the stiffer felt, however.  I was able to leave out one layer of batting in the construction.  For me machine stitching was the way to go.

OMG what a cutie.  Do you have to have a special needle for felt and even when you sew with a machine, does the felt make your needles dull?

Felt is EASY to sew.  The decorative stitches sit on top nicely.  I didn't get any fluff.  I probably used a size 14 needle, but I don't think it matters.  It's not hard on needles, even with the glitter.

im trying to make one for a regular ipod for my boyfriend. its kinda big, but he really only uses his ipod in the car and needs something to cover it so he can leave it in there but not have people steal it, so i think it will work well for that.

Thank you for this tutorial and the huuuge inspiration!!! That really rocked the Casbah. You inspired me to made my very first felt cozy for my bf for last Christmas. Since he is a gamer geek I created for him Blue Slime (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/Blue-Slime-mittelmittel.jpg) and here (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/Open-for-craftster.jpg).

The stitchings were very simple. All in all the case wasn't so convienent to use. But at that time I was pretty impressed by myself that I could do that. Before that I never made anything like that. Almost all my big sewing skills were back from my elementary school time (almost two decades ago...). I used moss for strengthening.

You can find my second finished and much improved iPod case with Katamari motive (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=132666) here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=245407.0)

For a long time I was needing a good ipod holder for my new nano, but I didn't like the ones at the store (or most of the prices). So when I found this tutorial I was so excited and ran to Michael;s to get some felt. It took me about four hours to make and I am so happy with it. Thanks for this get crafting idea!

okay I read through the 24 pages of comments...
and didn't see my question so
What if you don't have quilt batting and no place to find it?
Could I use some fleece too? Or a pillow stuffing, but that would make it bumpy...
Or a pull-over?

I'm making a blue star shaped one for my creative zen one (I love my mp3player and my music!)

I'm sorry I didn't get you your answer sooner, but it looks like it came out great!

You know, I'm all about experamenting, so I would say use whatever you can find that would work - shredded shopping bags, material or yarn scraps, recycle a pillow, Cat hair...no really, I have three and they produce alot of hair.... ;)

It's all about finding what works for you  :)

I LOVED doing this!

https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=286849

Because my Ipod is a nano, I had to re-interpret this tut and play it by ear.

The quilting I had was very thick so I removed the back flap batting and the extra star batting. I added a ribbon for hanging. I also think I did something wrong with the orientation of the ipod so I added a slot at the bottom for the earbud cord.

I also changed the mouth to chibi (SO CUTE :3 )

Finally, I'm considering adding a small pouch for the earbuds themsleves.

This is a great tutorial, thanks for uploading it!
