3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Using vinyl for mp3 player case? on: March 10, 2005 06:04:07 AM
I've got the exact same player, and the same problem - all the covers seem to be for the Ipod. I've even searched all over the web to see if I can buy one. The cover that came with the Zen is really great - but it's so boring. I've been thinking of sewing one, and just this morning went off in search of some old wool sweaters I've felted (washed in the machine in hot water a couple of times, and then you can cut it up without it fraying).

What I'm thinking is to cut off a sleeve, that way I have the cuff on the bottom. I'd use the cuff-side for the top, so the headphone jack could stick through.  Then I'd cut slits on the sides for the controls (and also a square in the front for the window), and then sew what used to be the top side (going towards the top of the sleeve - away from the cuff) closed.  Hmmm.  Then I'd probably want a strap so I could wear it across my body, but that may be hard to sew on to sweater material.

As far as vinyl, I'd think it would be a bit sticky, especially in the summertime or warmer climates. Unless you lined the vinyl with fabric, or even maybe felt?

Hope this gives you a starting point. I'm going to try to work on something this weekend, and will post pics if I finish.

Love it! So cool and creative! I just got a digital cam for Christmas, and when I can take a decent pic with it, I'll post a "Carrie" bag I made using Sublime Stitching patterns.  The clock is absolutely the best!
