Do you have an iPod Touch? I love mine and the cover that I made last year needed some improvements. So I revamped and made a new one. I love this new pattern so much - I had to share so you can make one too!
These would also make a great Christmas gift - and now is the time to start making those gifts!!
2 Fat Quarters of fabric. (1 for interior and 1 for exterior)
Fusible Interfacing. (I used Pellon 987 fusible fleece)
3/8 inch wide Black elastic
Closure - Either snap or velcro would work.
Step 1: Cut a rectangle 11 1/2 x 7 inches from EACH fabric and the fusible interfacing.
Step 4: Cut out the corners
Step 5: Next you will create the notch for the headphones. You will measure in 3/4 of an inch and 1/2 in wide.
To make sure you mark the appropriate place on each piece - put them RST (right sides together).
Step 6: Place your fabrics RST and sew all around with 1/4 seam allowance. Make sure to leave an opening for turning.
Step 7: Before you turn, you will need to trim the outer corners and snip the inner angles. Both shown in the picture below. Make sure not to accidently cut the stitching.
Step 8: Turn right sides out and press. Next you will stitch all around the outside using 1/8 in seam allowance. You will be closing your opening at this time.
Step 9: Take the elastic and cut 2 pieces to 3 1/4 inches each. To ensure proper placement - it's a good idea to put the iTouch there if you have it. If you are making as a gift and don't have the iTouch handy - you can get a good idea of placement from picture below. Pin in place.
Step 10: Stitch in place. Stitching through all layers. I backed up once to reinforce the stitching.
Step 11: This next step can get a little tricky. You will fold over the elastic to stitch the other side. You need to get creative to keep it in place as you try to get under the needle.
Step 12: Next you will install the closure. I used a snap. I bought these at Walmart. They are very easy to install. Follow package instructions for installation.
You can also use velcro for this step. Either would work just fine.
Step 13: Sit back and enjoy your new iTouch cover!!
