Sweet Zune Sleeve/Case

Make an awesome functional zune case/sleeve out of the useless one in the box.

If You have a Zune, You are wise. If you have a Zune original, you are very wise. There is a cool bag that houses the zune in the zune originals package (others as well?) I just figured that it could have more use than sitting in the box after it was opened.

If you're reading this and you don't have a Zune, Get one already!.

Step 2: -

Before anything else, Cut off the drawstrings and pull them out. Yep, It's about as easy as it sounds.

Use your marking pencil (or alternate) to mark the INSIDE of the sleeve where the logo is. This ensures that the logo makes it on to the final product and is centered.

A good way to do this is to get the pencil inside the sleeve and push the tip into the fabric so you can see the bump but it isn't marking. Then center it on the logo and push harder (of course) to make the mark.

Step 3: Position in the sleeve and mark.

1) Slide the Zune into the inside-out sleeve and position where you want. Putting the dot over the touch pad seems to work well. You want it where it isn't poking out and where the drawstrings won't restrict the headphone wires.

2) After its where you want it, pin around it so the fabric doesn't slide around. Make sure to pin outside where you will be marking and sewing.

3) Grab your fabric pencil and mark out where you will be sewing. Give yourself some leeway. You can always cut more off but you can't attach more on. At least easily..... Well, maybe. hm....

It will want to move around as you mark so HOLD 'ER DOWN!

My 30 gig zune that I got in November of 2007 works like a charm and looks great too. Even though my Zune came with a bag that was brown and It fit the zune EXACTLY, Its actually a tight fit, I really dont need it though cuz I spent like 25$ on a leather case.

yeah zunes rock! and i even have an original 30g and therefore this bag... ill see how this instructable works...
Everybody in my family has a zune (4G for the children, 80G for the adults ). At first, I loved it. Now, we have encountered quite a few problems. On my zune, the trackpad won't work if I have the zune on for more than 20 minutes. My mom's 80G wouldn't hold a charge. We thought it was just a defect, so we sent it back and got a new one. The next one did the same thing. If the can overcome the technical problems, Zune would definitely sell more than I-Pod.

My case is soo not the size of that one, it's actually a little too tight... lol well it fits but it's got no use for modding.
Yeah, I love my Zune to pieces, man :D I put 15 full length movies on there and it STILL has room for more :D I just wish they would allow AVI format on them though : ( Good instructable !

Totally, I have a buddy with the halo edition, it's pretty rad. Though, There isn't cool versions like that for the 2nd gens yet. So I'm guessing that the bag only comes with Zune originals? sounds like it. Thanks for the comments everybody!
AWESOME. Zune RULES. I really wish I had that Halo 3 version, the black one.. those are awesome. Great Instructable, unfortunately I have an iPod Video. That is kind of broken.

Hey, I bought a Zune 80 and got no case. Must be because no Zune Originals. :-(
