I saw the nice leather iPod cases on the Apple but they only have them for the iPod Classic, so, i went about making my own, i spoke to my colleague at work whom used to work in a leather shop, and it turns out its alot easier than i thought.
Here's what you need.
- Some leather, the thicker the better. I got mine off ebay as a bag of scraps.
- Some nice thick thread
- Card, glue and tape
- A pokey thing (awl)
- a good sized needle
- a blunt metal object
- A nice sharp knife
Step 1: Creating a Familiar,
So, i called upon my trusty gmjboard.
Place your item on the card, and roughly trace it, work out an approximate depth, then build up as needed, due to the curved back of the iPod, i shaved off the corners using a stanley knife.
You don't need to make it spot on, but try to get it close enough.
Once you have your shape, i then suggest wrapping it in tape, i used brown parcel tape for mine.
