1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / iPod nano Felt Case with Beautiful Katamari Damacy Motive (lotsa pictures) on: May 11, 2008 01:35:46 PM
Hi everyone,

I was one of many who got inspired by moxie_d with her genious Happy Star. The very first iPod case I made (for my bf) then was Blue Slime:

The stitchings were very simple. All in all the case wasn't so convienent to use. I improved my style and tried out one for myself but this time with the Blanket Stich. (I figured it out by myself after lotsa tryings before I found out about it and its name here on craftster) The much beloved Totoro!!
I almost finished it but I wanted to make a better one for my bf first. The new dimensions are smaller. I suggested Katamari Damacy as the new motive. That's a video game character we both enjoy. So here he is:
No stitchings - still in progress With stitchings

Finished looks:
Front (I wanted to make a rainbow too - but it turned out nah. So I removed it again. Guess, that's why it looks so fuzzy already)

Green Back. Hmmm... fuzzy already?! Guess this pic was taken later.

I used moss for strengthening between the felts. For the front one I cut out a little circle where the skip button lies behind. This way you can easily skip on your iPod without open the cover.

For the green and blue blanket stitches I used thread made out of 100% viscose. This gives it the shimmery look. And it's also easier to work with the felt. The felt don't pucker. I found out by coincidence. I have a huge shop here for sewings. I was just looking for the right color and happen to also found the right material. I used in each case three threads. But be careful. Or this thread can be a good example for Murphy's law. And it's not suitable for the sewing machine.

Hope you enjoy Cheesy

PS: I will change my Totoro one and adapt it to the new dimensions I came up with. Will post pictures then.
