Granny Square iPod Case

This is my new iPod case, that I have been working on with my 20 minutes of crafting a day. I seem to have gone a bit mad about granny squares, they are so easy and so addictive. The lining is some fleece that belonged to some of the babe’s jammies that she no longer fits in. I am always a big fan of practical and pretty and I’m pleased with how this turned out. My next project to work on is a little something for two of my kiddos that are restless sleepers. Yesterday was full to the brim of baking and cooking with lots of help from my little ones. I’m excited about sharing the recipes with you soon. Even though it is not planned, it seems as though Monday ends up being our big baking/cooking day as we seem to run out of things over the weekend. Do you guys have planned baking days, or do you just bake throughout the week?

    I love it! The colors, the ribbon…….lovely! Now if only I knew what an iPod was 🙂 No rhyme or reason to my baking urges….whenever the mood strikes or the occasion deems a baked good is necessary, I go for it!

    Fabulous! I love the colors. One of my resolutions for this year is to learn how to crochet granny squares. Dreaming of a big snuggly granny square blanket…

    And I know just what you mean about running out of things over the weekend. Really looking forward to the recipes!

    Very cute eyeglass case. I can see why your pleased with it. I bake when the mood hits. For instance, this morning….I craved homemade orange cranberry scones…so I baked some! My recipe is in my sidebar under baking and recipes, if you’re interested. Looking forward to seeing some of your yummies!

    I love your iPod case. I have been thinking about making one in felt–but I like yours even better! Too bad I don’t crochet.

    Monday is my housecleaning day. I guess Wednesday and Friday are baking days. I’m not always good at keeping to a schedule, though!

    Lovely granny squares! I’d be interested to hear more of what you’re baking….I seem to end up baking on nights during the week when a craving seizes me!

    Cannot crochet, so very impressed at your case! And if the baking isn’t done on a Monday or Tuesday, we’re sunk till the weekend as I work the other days.

  9. That is soooo sweet. The colours are very pretty and the ribbon just finishes it off. Fab.

    I love your ipod case! Great job…..I need to get better at crocheting! I try to bake a loaf of bread every morning…..but since our remodeling began I’ve been slacking in the kitchen!….still having home cooked meals every day….just no bread!

    Lovely case!! Very cute
    Baking gets done at the weekend, I have no time during the week for that kind of thing unfortunately! Unless there’s a birthday of course!

  12. Jennifer says:

    Thanks everybody, I really like the way it turned out. Mostly I bake bread as with six of us we go through a lot. We do make the occasional cake or sweet treat though.

    Super case, love the colours! I’ve started learning to crochet Granny Squares this week, there are some fool proof instructions over at Meet me at Mikes. Perfect for a beginner like me!

  14. This is great! The first thing I knitting for my husband was an ipod case…he loves it and uses it daily!

    This is awesome. In addition to wanting to make one for myself. I want to get my grandmother an ipod, so she can have a granny square ipod case too.
