I was thinking of purchasing a cute case from Etsy but I have a hard time buying things I could probably make myself, especially since I already had the necessary fabric to put it together. I am not a great seamstress but I can get by and sew simple things. So when I saw this tutorial by Tammy over at Not JUST A Housewife it was just the inspiration I needed to finally make my case.
The tutorial is easy to follow and the case went together quickly. I used some Amy Butler fabric I had on hand along with a plain pink cotton to finish it off. I added a giant ruffle across the back and since it was the first time I ever attempted making a ruffle like this I am fairly pleased. It is just slightly off but not enough to make me want to go back and fix it.
The really cute pink case that my iPod is in is a Speck Candyshell Case and I loooove it. It does not slide off at all and has a great rubber-ish protective lip that sticks up a bit off the top of the screen to give it a little bit of protection since we know how sensitive the screens are.
