A pink and brown ipod cover designed like a toaster pastry.

Materials and Tools:

(1) sheet of light brown felt
(1) sheet of pink felt
pink seed beads
scissors
pink cotton thread
light brown cotton thread
washable chalk
straight pins
sewing needle

Steps:

1. Create a pattern by placing the iPod on the light brown felt and tracing around it with washable chalk. Be careful not to draw too closely, make your outline about 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch wider than the iPod. Do this twice to create two identically sized pieces of felt. Don't worry about the chalk line being visible once the project is complete, it will easily wipe off.

2. Cut felt on the chalk line.

3. Next, place the iPod on the pink felt and using the chalk, trace a tight outline around it. Within this chalk line, sketch a curving line to create the "frosting" shape. Make sure not to get too close to the outline, you'll want some of the light tan felt to show beneath when you attach the frosting to the toaster pastry's top. Cut out the shape.

4. Randomly sew pink seed beads onto frosting, these will resemble sprinkles. Add as many or as few as you'd like.

5. Pin the frosting to one of the light brown felt pieces and, using a running stitch along the edge of the frosting, sew the two pieces together.

6. Pin both pieces of the light brown felt together. Again, using a running stitch, sew three sides of the two pieces together about an eighth of an inch in from the felt edge. Be sure to tie off any loose pieces of thread and weave them into the felt fabric. When finished, wipe away any remaining chalk lines with a damp cloth.

7. Finally, slide your iPod into your completed cozy and enjoy your favorite tunes.
