I made this as a gift to a guy. Hopefully it's manly and he'll like it.
How do you think, is it manly enough?  I haven't send it out, if it's not good, I still can make another one.
Your comments are really appreciated.

I uploaded more picture in my blog, http://yimi-handwork.blogspot.com/2008/05/black-and-white-ipod-cozy.html
thanks for looking

well i love it but im not a guy Smiley and for if it is manly enough for a guy? it depends. i know that my husband would not use it. but i also now some guys who would use it with pride. So i think it all depends on the type of guy. I hope that was not offensive in any way. not meant to be. just trying to explain that it kinda would depend on the guy and his style. Assuming you know they guy your are sending it too. Im sure it is going to be perfect for him. Hope that made sense and was helpfull. i love it tho

My husband wouldn't use it either - too flowery for him. It is gorgeous though - I would use it - if I had an ipod.  Okay... I would find a use for it since it is so sharp!  I personally love it....  but I know my husband would think it was too flowery. Undecided
Your friend might just adore it - I agree - depends on the guy.

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

I think it's a gorgeous ipod cozy.. But as with the others, not sure about if it's right for your guy. Black and white can be good choices for manliness, but the fabrics to have a lot of swirly-ness to them, which i find is typically more feminine. I really like it though, I hope that counts!!

Thank you all to let me know your opinions. Smiley Lexie123, it's not offensive at all.
Actually, when I looked at this, I had that big doubt: is it manly?  Now, it's clear, I added too much my own taste on it.

I always try to send out gifts that can be used, especially my handmade things. It's lucky, I didn't just send it out, but posted it here first.

And thank you for liking it, maybe I can give it to a lady friend Smiley I only need change that button with his initial

I find that when dealing with men its best to use solid colors.
Its a gorgeous cozy I agree but flowery and swirly
why not try using just black- guys always appreciate something black dont they?

Thanks for the comments and suggestion.
Do you mean just solid black, nothing else?

Even if it isn't necessarily 'guy friendly' - it is gorgeous.  You do great work!!

How about you use solid colors that represent his favorite Sports team, assuming you would like to use multiple colors.

not manly.  VERY nice, though.

you could use a variety of solid colors, like a few shades of black and grey...  i think if it looks like a shirt or pants that he would wear, it could be ok.

creative criticism always appreciated!
