An iPod Bag

Well this old lady has finally gotten into the modern era and gotten an iPod.  Now mine is one of those that has everything but a bathroom, but the only thing I use it for is to listen to books.  While I was in the hospital I really got hooked on audiobooks.  A friend of mine, Shirleymac, got me interested in a very special place called Librivox.  They have a gazillion books and they are all free.  She has also read for them, they ask for people to help out all the time.  Now that is something I would love to try,  but with my southern Texas accent I don't believe they could use me. 

Anyway, the post today is about a very simple little case I crocheted so I could carry my iPod with me, plus there is room in there for my electric plug to hide. Jay laughs at me because it has a pedometer, an alarm clock, a video camera.....but what do I do?  I listen to books.  The worse part is when I go to bed and listen I make it through about 20 minutes of the story and then I am sound asleep.  So why do I even download the whole book?  I should just do about 3 chapters.

So anyway, here is a photo of my case and all I did was crochet a long piece then fold the bottom up and stitch the sides then fold the top down to create the flap closure.  Trust me this is not rocket science.  I will probably make another one in the camo yarn for one of my grandsons, he thinks since his Dad is in the Air Force camo is the only true color there is.  Anybody out there wanna swap g-kids????


  1. Adorable!! You might have read of my troubles losing my ipod on my blog (along with a slew of other items). I have actually lost it again....and this time I think it might be for good!! :( If you can design a carrier that will beep so I can find it....I need the pattern!!!! Have a wonderful day!

  2. Your new iPod bag is really CUTE Molly!.. I have a little MP3 player, but it's strictly music so far! I never heard or thought of audiobooks on it! Very interesting!.. Hope you're enjoying this beautiful first week of Summer! ~tina

  3. Love your bag...I did the same thing but do alot of yardwork wearing my Stetson, so I designed a bag that will hold the iPod and is attached to the headband...makes yardwork so much easier!...come visit when you can...

  4. This is a really pretty pouch, so bright and colorful. Lovely! I enjoy listening to audio books/stories as well and like you, it doesn't take long for me to fall asleep at night when I listen to someone telling me a story ;-) Must be a habit from back when I was a child.

  5. Thanks for the tip about Librivox. This has been something I have been meaning to try. Off to check it out

  6. Awww... I love the color you choose for your bag :D
