Oooh, I do like the holster idea... must think on this.

Bumping because I have a similar problem.

I carry my iPod and my Palm PDA with me at the gym (the Palm has books on it for entertainment on the bike/treadmill machines), and am trying to figure out some sort of *sigh* fanny pack thing to hold the two.  Problem being that my sewing machine and sewing stash are kaput and not fixable any time soon (long story), so sewing a bag is not an option.

Does anybody know of any knitted/crocheted patterns out there that might be similar to a fanny pack that I could make?

Who's seen ipodjewelry.com? I am drooling over that work of art the artist made out of that iPod shuffle.

I now want to do something similar for my 15G. I don't know how well it'd work for a piece of jewelry because it's a little large for that, but I'm thinking of decorating one of my old cases with some beads or something. I've got a DLO Action Jacket (from everythingipod.com) I don't use too much because I got it for the armband and the armband's too big for me, and I think I could stick a needle through it to do some decoration...

Ooh. I just had a weird idea. How feasible do you think it would be to make an iPod holder into a hair barrette? My case has little backpack straps on the back, after all... Might be a bit too heavy on the head to wear with the iPod inside, though.

There's a book called Knit and Crochet With Beads that you can look for.

I found a book, Knit and Crochet With Beads, that I was flipping through in the store. The quick and dirty way to add beads is to just take the intended stitch off the needle, slip a big-enough-hole bead over it, then put the stitch back on and knit as normal.

Definitely helped to keep track of which row I was knitting/purling after I started putting the beads in that..

(Edited to add: Never mind, figured out how to solve the problem myself.  Doh, it just won't work on the upper arm!)

Okay, here's try 3.0. Still a little gapey at the sides, but oh well, still more secure than the other one (which is starting to get a bit shredded).

I tried to make an armband for it, but it didn't work out too well, so I ended up doing this with what was left.

This originally started out as a Berroco Andy tank top, but with the big needles it came out a bit more...holey...than expected. But I worked with it, and decided to add some blue and purple beads into the front of the tank. It came out very interesting, and lord knows nobody else is going to have something like this!

Here's a closeup of the beads.

Since it's uh, rather see-through, I have a shirt on under this so you can see how it looks more clearly.

And here's how I'm going to wear it, with a purple tank top underneath.
This is my first knitting project (finally finished!), and I'm amazed it's done at all!

I read it and Knit Lit (too) and loved them both. The stuff in there is so unique!

kdka, might I just say THANK YOU for the pattern instructions for your crocheted iPod? I saw yours and fell in love with it and decided to do one for my beginning crochet class, but uh, the one I tried to figure out by myself didn't come out so well. (I figure this will give everyone a laugh...)

My second version on my own actually sounds very similar to your instructions because I tried to do a tube, but evidently I didn't figure out how to size around the wheel too well- I left too many stitches open, I guess. It works, but the buttons are kind of blocked off and the holes are as wide as the iPod itself and it's also rather amusing-looking.

Anyway, attempt #3 will hopefully go better now, eh? Smiley

As to sewgeeky, I think I'll be attempting your furry iPod when I get done with my knitting class projects. So funny!

(Edited to add that I came home and took pictures of attempt #2 here:)
