Over the summer holidays i've been doing a lot of stuff, and like a real man, i wore jeans. However the things i do are so awesome the jeans couldn't take it any more and big holes apeared at the knees.
Usually this would be fine and i would just keep wearing them, but for some bizarre reason all the silly kids think its cool to wear pre-ripped jeans, so not wanting to look like lesser men i went out and bought some new man-jeans.
So i decided to put my old jeans to a good use and make an iPod case, i wanted to keep the coolest part about jeans which is the leather label on the waistband. Now like most guys i don't know a whole lot about needles and sewing so i decided the easiest way to make it was just to cut a strip out, fold it over and sew it together. Turned out pretty easy, however i did plant the needle under my nail a few times which really really really hurt.
Why you should make one now:
- Has a built in belt loop
- School is starting, you need a case.
Mine is made for an iPod Touch, the case will work for many gadgets though
Check out the pictures below, it looks awesome and you wont find a manlier case until you make one out of stone (or fire)
Step 1: Get Jeans
Otherwise get some cheap ones from:
- Thrift Store
- Charity Shop
- Goodwill Shop
- Craigslist ?
Step 2: Cut Fabric
You will need a ruler, pen and some hefty scissors for this step.
Remember you need some space on either side to sew on and some space at one end for pop-buttons.
Your fabric needs to be about 10 inches long and 3 inches wide.
