For Tom's Christmas present I thought I'd make a little case for his iPod (it's the same size as an iPhone I think so this would work well for those too!)
It's pretty simple, all you'll need is:
White & grey felt and blue felt for the back
Needle & thread (black and white)
Sticky velcro pieces (optional)
Firstly measure out your iPod/iPhone/MP3 device. I initially measured mine out too small in the sketch above, and had to re-do it to allow for a bit of room round the edge.
For an iPod touch the final measurements I used were: 8.2cm wide by 14.5cm deep (including the room for ears!) for the grey piece and 8.2cm x 12.5cm for the blue fabric on the back. Draw a rectangle this size onto both the grey and blue fabric. On the grey piece (front) cut out some ears at the top (about 1.5 cm deep).
Next cut out 2 white circles for the eyes and a big one for the tummy. Sew these onto the front along with the nose, mouth and whiskers. I used a black pen to do the dots for the eyes! Now sew the front to the back using blanket stitch. Finally if you want to secure the top just use a piece of sticky-back velcro. You're done! (Note, felt isn't the strongest fabric so you may want to use something a bit more hard wearing if your iPod gets a lot of rough & tumble!)
