make THIS: iPOD HOLDER (FOR EXERCISING)

Photobucket
We saw this tutorial online where they created an iPod holder for exercising out of a t-shirt. We loved the idea but wanted to change some things to make it extra durable.

Photobucket
Cut a piece from the shirt that is 2 inches longer than the circumference of your arm. Mine was about 17 inches long and 14 inches wide.

Photobucket
Your piece should look like this.

Photobucket
Fold the piece in half "hamburger style".

Photobucket
And stitch the edges together on the one side.

Photobucket
Turn the material inside out.

Photobucket
It will look like this.

Photobucket
Fold in half "hot dog style".

Photobucket
Sew 4 lines across the layers. The two lines in the middle should be far enough apart to put an iPod (or whatever music device you use) between them. The two stitched lines on the outside will hold the material together.

Photobucket
Turn the holder over and stitch velcro on one end.

Photobucket
Stitch the opposite velcro on the backside of the holder. We put two lines horizontal so we could adjust the size.

Photobucket
When you velcro it all together it will look like this!

Photobucket
This is the front side where you insert your iPod.

Photobucket
With the iPod in it...

  1. This is such a good idea, up to now I've had to run wearing a hoodie, but as they weather is getting hotter I need a t-shirt, but had no way of carrying my music, so this is genius!

  2. Omg! Thank you so much! I was deciding on buying one of those straps from the store but they're a bit pricey. I've been using my sport's bra's pocket in front to store my ipod but it gets annoying sometimes. Thanks again!

  4. I was wondering, when you run with this iPod holder, does it stay put on your arm? When you run does it slide down your arm? That's one problem I always have with these kinds of holders.

    Thanks!
