kawaii bear cozy
Yay for pink bears! I crocheted this ipod touch holder/ cozy out of cotton yarn (for durability) in the shape of an oh-so-kawaii bear... I really like the way it turned out. I wanted something that was cute and easy to take care of, so you can't beat cotton yarn for machine washability (though the yarn and felt may get a bit fuzzy, and it may shrink a bit in the dryer). The verdict: they hold up really well and protect your ipod from getting scratched in your bag! Plus, the fact that they are bear shaped is a really big bonus; people always comment on how cute my test cozy is. I actually have a bunch of these made from a few months back (when things weren't as busy as now but still busy enough that I never photographed them all) but I wanted to make sure it would be up to the job of protecting my ipod from me (ya know, the dropping, the car keys, the heavy books, etc) ... now that it's passed my extensive and professional testing (ha ha) I'm all set to go! I only have the pink one ready for my store, but I'll soon have more bears in brown, light pink, blue, aqua, lavender and light yellow.
Speaking of my store, I've moved some stuff to clearance in my etsy; most of it is around $2 off!
