i-Touch Cosy

After nearly ten years of regular use, my personal CD player decided it was time to stop working two days before Christmas!
It was too late for a lovely replacement for Christmas or birthday from hubby so New Year saw the challenge to find something else.
I thought that perhaps I ought to drag myself into the 21st century and look at a Nano or i-touch player. So I treated myself to the above.
As is often the case, despite paying a tidy bit for gadgets like these you rarely get a case with it or you have to buy one separately.
Ahh, but this signals a crafty chance to raid the stash pile and make something original.
I have had the above fabric for a while. It was intended for a dairy cover commission but an alternative fabric was used.
I decided to lightly quilt it and lined it with the same fabric. I love buttons and this sparkly one just bounced up and down in the box saying "me! me! Sew me on!", so of course I did.

A simple quick fastening means that I can include the earphones and if needed the charging cable as well, plenty of room inside.
The top flaps over and the loop secures around the button. I have been able to put the i-Touch upside down and wear the headphones while it is still in the case! I did not want to mess around with holes to attach the earphones through, difficult to finish it off neatly.
I am really pleased with the way it turned out and I even had some fabric left over.
Want to know what I made with it?
Pop back to see tomorrow.

It's a beauty! I love that it is large enough to hold the earphones as well as often they get put elsewhere and subsequently lost!

I do love my i-Touch - one of the best things I bought. I'm sure you'll love it; and that cover is so pretty. x
