  • How to sew a fabric character pouch. Monster iPod Cosy - Step 1
    Step 1

    Sew the sticky side of velcro onto the top left hand corner of a sheet of felt (about a half inch or so from the top and an inch from the side).

    Put the matching velcro (soft part) on the sticky part, but leave the tape on!

    Put the ipod on the felt again and pin it tightly against the base of the body. Make sure you have the velcro on the INSIDE of the cozy at this point!

    Uh-oh, don't panic! If it doesn't fit snugly, just keep sewing it until it does, like I did on the left side.

    Cut it out! Make sure you leave a long flap to work with.

    Flip it right side out and take the soft velcro off. Make sure your ipod fits well before you continue.

    Step 8

    Figure out where you are going to put the soft piece of velcro. This might take a bit of sticking and re-sticking.

    Sew the velcro in place and trim the flap so it is rectangular looking. Cut a small hole on the bottom right for the earbud jack.

    Feel around the middle of the button. Using a stitch ripper, cut the felt above the button.

    Step 11

    Cut a small circle to get a feel of where you actually are seeing as every part of the button is pushable.. turns out I was a little high on estimate, so it's good that I didn't cut a bigger hole.

    Step 12

    Cut the hole a little bigger every time, until you get a perfect circle. Okay, it's not perfect, but it doesn't matter, because that's where the teeth go anyways.

    Get some other coloured felt and draw a circle a little bigger than the one you cut for the button. This is what you will cut the teeth out of.

    Cut out the teeth as close to the circle you drew as possible.

    Cut a circle out of another colour of felt to fit over your *teeth*. (I used the base of the serger thread spool in the picture for my circles).

    Cut a *mouth* out and place it over top of the teeth.

    You get the point. Hand stitch hands and legs to him (or her). I added some angry eyebrows too, as I'm sure you can see. Oh, and the mouth. Can't forge the mouth.

    Voila.
    Easy Peasy.
