Jogger's iPod Case



This Jogger's iPod Case from Jane Skoch is great for those who like music on the move!  It's easy to sew and even includes a secret pocket to store ID's, money, keys, and more.  This makes a great gift for a teen or someone who loves being outdoors!

  • Home dec or canvas fabric for outside, 4.5" x 11"
  • Fusible fleece, 4.5" x 11"
  • Laminated cotton, 4.5" x 11"
  • Vinyl, clear, 20 gauge, 4" x 5" (cut down to a smaller size later)
  • Knit elastic, 2" wide


  1. Cut the outside fabric, fusible fleece and laminated fabric to:  4.5" x 11".

  2. Iron the fusible fleece to the back side of the canvas/home dec fabric.
  3. Place the laminated cotton, right sides together, on the canvas/home dec fabric and pin.

  4. Sew around the four sides using a 1/4" seam allowance leaving a 2" opening for turning.  Trim corners.

  5. Turn right sides out.  Press from the canvas/home dec side, pressing in the seam allowance at the opening.

  6. You will be folding the entire rectangle in half so that the lining is on the inside and stitching it together along the left and right side.  Before you do that, add the clear vinyl pocket. You can cut your vinyl so that it fits just above the fold to about 3/4" below the top.  Mine is 3.25" x 4.25". Stitch around the perimeter of the vinyl on 3 sides.  Note: A Teflon foot or roller foot makes sewing vinyl easier. You can also use a longer stitch and help guide it through if you don't have a special foot.

  7. Cut the elastic.  Amber's instructions say to measure your arm's circumference.  Take that measurement, divide it in half and then add 2.5".   I am very fussy about how tight things are on me and had to adjust the length of the elastic.  I would recommend using the calculation above, basting the elastic into the armband and trying it on - with the Ipod in the case.  I ultimately used a length of about 9.5".

  8. Fold the rectangle with the cotton laminate fabric on the inside and your vinyl pocket on the outside.  Pin together on the sides.  Add the ends of the elastic in to each side so that the elastic is centered on the folded rectangle pocket.  Stitch through all layers on the left and right side of the armband.   Here's a view of the back.  When you stitch on either side, you have to make sure to tuck the elastic back so that the elastic is stitched close to the edge. Stitch again along the sides to reinforce the elastic.
