A TINY bag

Yep, I'm still a bag lady! But oh, what a tiny bag!

See how little it is!  It only measures about 4.25" across!

It's a case for a tiny MP3 player (which measures only 1.4"x2.2" itself!). It's a gift, so I don't have the player here to demonstrate... but look how monstrous my iPad charger cord looks next to it!

I wanted to make something that had pockets to keep the charger and earbud cords from tangling together. This fit the bill just right. You can sorta make out the inside pockets in the photo above. There's even a pocket on the outside in the back (see below). I guess it'd be handy for a tissue or something. :)

I found the tutorial for this here. It's actually called a Mini Wallet. It was pretty easy to make, but required some very careful sewing. I used an actual buttonhole instead of a snap, because I thought that would have a little more 'give' if the case got stuffed full. I hope it works as I intend it to... if not, I'll make something else! :)

I also made another little earbud pouch.

I thought a certain little girl might like one for her upcoming birthday. With a surprise inside, of course! Shhh... don't let her see it, Mommy!

Wow, they're almost the same size!

One zippered ear bud case, please. If you are taking orders. I have an iPod shuffle (1 inch by 1.25 inches) with ear buds ( It looks like that case would be perfect

How about a mega cabled scarf in exchange for a zippered case? Color of your choice!
