It became winter today! Loads of snow (falling horizontally), pretty cold, but you know what stayed cosy? My iPod.
I followed a tutorial by julie ree and sewed this little cosy. I made the 3"-by-4" inch size. Well, first I tried to make a smaller one to fit the nano size, but it turned out more like a chapstick cosy. So then I made this one, which is a little big, but the band of elastic holds the iPod inside. I had to stitch around the top by hand, and then I did some stitching within the diagonal lines to hold the layers together, so the lining wasn't just floating around in there. Technically, it's a bit of a mess, but it does the job (the important job of a cosy, that is) and it makes me happy every time I pull it out of my coat pocket. It's a genius little design, and Julie's how-to tutorial has clear instructions and photos.
Look at your iPod. It looks a little chilly and naked now, doesn't it?
