A duct tape protective case for the iPod.
I needed a cozy for my ipod because I am always just throwing it into my purse witch contains everything but the kitchen sink so the screen was starting to get scratched. I wanted something durable but that didn't cost a fortune. I was looking at your site and saw the duct tape wallet project and it inspired me because I had just got my daughter some colored duct tape for a school project. I found a template for the case on Martha Stewarts website http://images.marthastewart.com/images/content/web/pdfs/pdf1/blueprint_ipod_template.pdf but I had to modify it quite a bit because it was for sewing a suede case. I had to trim the sides down because I didn't need a seem alowance and I added a flap that would cover the screen to prevent the scratches. I also cut out a square on the top to put the earphones through. I did the whole thing in pink tape first and then covered the outside with camo tape. I then cut out a star design from the camo on the front revealing the pink underneath. This was a really fun project and it only took about 15 min. It is also very thick durable and looks better than it does in the pictures.
