« on: December 27, 2004 10:18:20 AM »

I got an iPod for Christmas (woohoo!) but I already managed to get it dirty, heh.  I put it in my backpack without even thinking of colored pencil shavings so now there's a really light blue mark on the ClickWheel.  It made me think though... why don't I dress up my iPod with stickers (or something removable).  When I asked my mom and sis they thought I was crazy and now I'm discouraged. 

So, am I crazy?  Is there a reason not to decorate it?  I don't think I'll ever sell the iPod or anything.  Or maybe I could make a cover for it that I could change out and it wouldn't leave a sticky residue.  However, I do not want to knit a cozy or anything (although I got a Learn to Knit kit for Christmas as well), it has to be something I can draw all over.  I was going to draw on a sheet of sticker paper and use that because the stickers would have to be a certain size to fit on the small spaces not dominated by the ClickWheel.  I can sew reasonably well, except for vinyl (that was a horrible experience Tongue).  Help me figure out what to do please!

Has anyone ever decorated their iPod?  If so, show pictures!  Even the knitted cozies, just show whatever embellishments you did on your iPod just for fun Smiley.

I saw - somewhere - that they now make stickers to cover your iPod. Like Avery, or one of those companies - you design them and print from your computer and it wraps around the iPod... maybe you could just get those and then color however you want...

Thanks for the tip lizajane73.  I googled for iPod stickers and some neat stuff came up.  However, I ran across a website that actually tested out one of those stickers and the iPod was pretty gross looking after taking the stickers off.  I think I'll go some sort of cozy made out of clear vinyl or something.  It'll be less damaging and I can draw on it with a sharpie.  Thanks for your help though!

I use a silicone cover on mine. It's a little bit on the thick side, which gives me an added sense of security. I haven't tried drawing on it, but I think that a sharpie would work really  well. You can buy them with a clip kit for the back of the sleeve and a cover for the screen. It keeps everything from getting scratched and filled up with backpack detritus. www.xksn.com

I blinged my earbuds with itty bitty flat Swarovski crystals.

Can't you find something constructive to do?

Thanks so much for that link, candysniper.  It's awesome and affordable as well!  I'm so glad you gave me the link to that website because I was about give up and make my own cover which would've been too much hassle.  Your iPod cover looks so cool and I absolutely love the crystals you attached to the earbuds Smiley.

This site customizes your i pod with crystals, but for me it's inspiration to do the same thing myself. I'm not sure if it's exactly up your alley or not but I thought it was pretty cool to look at.

HP actually does a sticker skin/cover for new iPods.

Go to www.ipodlounge.com they have tons of accessories.  Apple actually have iPod socks, which I guess you can actually knit your own.

i made this one for my mini it was pretty easy and totally removable it just slides off the top or bottom, but i dont know if i would work on a regular ipod. its worth a try, considering its so cheap. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35505.0

This is a bit late, but by doing such permanant things apple will not take your ipod if something is wrong with it. It's just a forewarning.

a civil world like this it always sells itself.
