I couldn’t find a perfect case for my iPod so I did it myself. I’d like to share it with all of you. You can download the DIY instructions and diagram as a PDF. Have Fun!

The DIY case works best with the 20GB model.  I tried it on my 10GB and I had to trim it numerous times to get it to fit right.  A shower curtain works really well, IMO.

This is just like what I’ve been looking for! An incredible idea!....But one problem, the link to the download doesn’t work. :(

A fast and easy case for the 4th generation ipod nano is an altoids case.  Punch a hole in one end, and put a little foam in the bottom, and you are good to go.  It keeps it really safe, at a small accessibility cost.
