Mario Mushroom iPod covers
This is an iPod cover i made last year after i saw a star shaped iPod nano cover. I have an 80G iPod which would never have fitted in the cute wee star so i had to come up with something else. This is the end result, i've since made two more red mushrooms and one green for friends.

Added pictures of the 1-Up and Purple Poison mushrooms!

  • How to sew a fabric character pouch. Mario Mushroom I Pod Cozy - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut out shapes from the felt as
    follows:
    White Felt - Two mushrooms, one
    rectangle to cover iPod, one circle
    and four half circles.
    Red Felt - Top of mushroom, two
    rectangles with rounded tops for back
    cover.

    It's easiest to sketch out the shape of the mushroom on a bit of paper first and draw round it on the felt. Make sure you make it slightly bigger than the width of your iPod to make sure the iPod fits in.
