Tips & Tricks: Do-It-Yourself Vinyl iPod Case

Norbert S. emailed to share with us his DIY vinyl iPod case plans:

“Needing a case, I was inspired by John Corbin’s PodPac, but thought that
the price was a little out of range for what I would get. After looking
closely at his design, I made one myself and think I made a few

It was such a success that I’ve made a few for some friends and wrote up a
pattern that everyone can use to make their own vinyl sleeve for under one
dollar in about 20 minutes.”

Note: Acrobat Reader is required to view the DIY Vinyl Case plans.

Download the pattern with instructions…
