DIY iPod MP3 case

Found this adorable DIY iPod case instructional.  This iPod mp3 case is the cutest one I’ve ever seen and it’s homemade!  Looks like a fun project to do.  This nano case would be a great stocking stuffer for the holidays and even more special cause you made it.

It’s time for a new winter outfit for my MP3. Woohoo!

Cut out 2 same size felt sheets for each – front, back and cover.
(Pic showing back, front, cover.  I used different color for the back)

Front: Put 2 sheets together and do a buttonhole stitch
(stich only on the top part and around 2 open windows – just like the pic!)

diy home craft project
Put 2 back sheets together with the completed front piece then do the
buttonhole stitch all around it except for the opening where the ear piece
inserts below & the sides where the sheep ears will be added.

The cover piece, put on a sheep face and apply the lolipop decor…

diy holiday gift
Attach the sheep ears.  I decided to stitch in the
black cat instead of a lolipop piece.

Whoah…sweating!  Gluing on the cat would’ve
been easier but prettier if it’s stitched in.

Add the eyelets!  Love these little things. :)

I insert my favorite green leather string through the eyelets & secure.
Oops, forgot the pic – buttonhole stitch the cover piece to the main
case at the very top (see the darker top stitching in the last pic?)

pretty mp3 case
Attach a little plastic snap button for closure.  A hook might work too.

You can also attach an ear piece wire holder on the back side…genius!
(stitch in the bottom part & add the snap button at the top for an easy open/close)

Use the sheep ears to hang the ear piece…heeheehee…so cute! :)

    Do you have patterns for this project? I’d like to make this for my friend as a Christmas gift but I don’t have an Ipod to do the measurements! Also how’d you make the sheep’s face…its soo cute!

    awesome- thanks for sharing!

    a friend just bought one of these ipods for herself yesterday- any chance you could share the dimensions that used- so I could make it for her without having to measure it?!

    thanks!
