How to Make an iPod Cover:

Well, you finally bought an iPod. It looks so shiny and new that you just wish it would look like that forever. At least you can keep it shiny, new and safe by making your own felt iPod cover. Just follow the instructions below and you and your iPod will be all set to go!


1. Take your iPod and draw out a template on a piece of paper. Make the template twice the length + twice the thickness + a flap. The width of the template should be the same width as the iPod + twice the thickness.

2. Cut out your template. Trace your template on felt and cut out the felt shape.

3. Place your iPod in the center of the felt. Fold up the bottom of the felt so that it covers most of the front of the iPod. Pin the felt into place nice and tight.

4. Remove the iPod and tidy up the pins so that they are all straight. Slip the iPod back in to make sure it fits snug. Be careful not to scratch it with the pins.

5. Slip the iPod out again and cut off any excess felt at the sides. Snip the corners of the flap so that they are rounded.

6. Sew the sides of the iPod cover and remove the pins. Turn the whole thing inside out.

7. Cut out a rectangle (the size of your iPod's screen), a large circle (the size of the click wheel) and a smaller circle (the size of the click wheel button) out of white felt. Stitch them into place as shown.

8. Take a snap and stitch the top half to the inside of the flap. Stitch the bottom half of the snap on to the top of the inside flap. Insert iPod.

Tips :
  • Make them in different colors and change them every few days for a new look.
  • These photos on this iPod cover are done on an iPod mini, but could be easily duplicated on a iPod Video, Nano, or other iPod.
  • These would be great gifts for the holidays.
  • For those teens who look for extra cash, especially right before the holidays, make these, and sell them to friends and family.
  • Consider using Velcro or a button in place of the snap to keep from scratching the screen/surface of the Ipod in the pouch.
  • Be careful when handling the iPod.
  • Always be careful when working with needles and scissors. Children should have adult supervision.
