With a bit of time and materials, you can make your own custom iPod carrying case... for a fraction of the price found in most electronics purveyors shops.With prices of iPod accessories so over-inflated, you could sew up ten of these for the price you'd pay at the electronics store.

The sewing level required is average to experienced, but a beginner could do this with a bit of patience and perseverance.

iPod and MP3 players vary in size and shape, but the general instructions would apply to any roughly rectangular shape.

Things you'll need:

- Fabric scrap
- Iron-on patch or mending material
- Needle and thread
- Sewing machine
- Iron
- 1/16th. in. ribbon
- D-ring, key ring, or similar for attachment point

Step 1: Step 1

Measure your ipod's dimensions and add half an inch. Alternatively, you could just wrap the cloth around the iPod and mark an extra inch all around. Cut the material to size.
