I made this case for my friend's iPod nano, and as a going away present since he was leaving for Japan. He asked for something very plain, and in grey and white so this is what I made. He likes things to be very simple and modern. Surprisingly he didn't want any bird embroidery or anything like that. (or, as Bradley just pointed out, a robot! who wouldn't want a robot?) There's just no accounting for taste right? I was happy that it fit, since I don't have a nano to test it with so I was working from a tracing I took of his.
And for all you fellow crafters out there, I know what you're thinking. I have someone who can buy me Japanese crafts books! That's right, he's offered to find some books for me. I've been choosing what I'd like from all the great pictures my fellow bloggers are taking. I would love to get some of the pretty fabrics I'm seeing too (see these pictures), but I wouldn't know where, and I suspect that might be pushing my luck. But if anyone happens to know...
In case anyone out there is wondering what I'm talking about, here's a great site to introduce you to the wonderful world of Japanese crafts books:
These are the ones I think I would like:
