Lanyard iPod pouch

And new iPod cases for Isabella and Liam. At Christmas Dean got a new iPod and I got a new iPhone after my contract expired (and my phone was deciding who I was and wasn't allowed to receive calls and voicemail from) so the kids got the old ones. 

Very rough instruction on how to make these up:

Cut 2 outer fabric, 2 thin batting and 2 lining fabric all measuring 4 1/4 inches wide x 6 3/8 inches high.

Baste the batting to the wrong side of the 2 outer fabric pieces with a 1/4 inch seam (quilt if desired, I used diagonal stripes on Bella's and straight vertical lines on Liam's)

Right sides facing together of the 2 outer fabric pieces, sew using a 1/2 inch seam the two sides and bottom together, leaving the top open
Right sides facing together of the 2 lining fabric pieces, sew using a 1/2 inch seam the two sides and the bottom, but leaving about 2 inch gap in the bottom for turning, the top should also be open

Turn the outer fabric pouch right side out and iron flat, and place inside the lining fabric pouch, right sides facing each other and sew with a 1/2 inch seam around the top.

Turn the right way out using the gap at the bottom of the lining fabric and stitch the gap closed. Stuff the lining pouch inside the outer pouch and iron again, top stitch the top if desired (I didnt).
Then I put a punch and rivet in that the lanyard could clasp through on the back.

I hope that makes sense, it is very basic construction really just a simple lined pouch.
