iWorry about my iPod getting scratched. Instead of buying an iPod sock from apple for 30 bucks (ummm yea, I can’t even talk about that) or stealing one from a baby, I utilized my amateur knitting skills to create this sleeping bag shaped cozy to keep my mp3s warm and safe.
What you need:
- an iPod or something, otherwise this is pointless
- knitting needles
- a needle if you don’t have tiny agile fingers
I simply knit a long panel and stitched it up. I cast on a dozen stitches of wool yarn onto size 6 needles, to a length just slightly smaller than the ipod’s height when folded over. I decreased stitches at the end to make a curved top that would hook over the top of an ipod, like a mummy sleeping bag.
Stitch up the sides, flip that bad boy inside out, and slip your headphones through the yarn to plug them in.
This case does the job, but here are some awesome cases other people have made.
