Super Mario Star iPod Case

How-To: Make Your Own Mario Star Nano Case

I've featured some cool DIY projects, as well as some interesting iPod cases on the site before, but I don't think I've ever seen anything like this mashup! I caught this How-To on Crafty Crafty yesterday morning, and thought that if you were as much as a Mario fan as I am, that you'd flip over this adorable Mario Super Star Nano case, too. Although I've yet to try my hand at the project, I've certainly got it on my to-do list for the next time I'm stuck indoors, and will be keeping an eye out for some bright yellow felted fabric on my next trip to the fabric store!

Thankfully, the crafty maker posted a super in depth how-to on Cut Out + Keep so we can all get our sew on and keep our precious iPod Nanos nice and warm!

that is SO cute. I think i will make one for my ipod, just for the fun of it. I do think it will only look best with a Nano though :( but will still be worth trying i suppose.

This makes me wish I had a nano. If I made one for my ipod touch, I think it would be the most impractical thing ever.

that's cute. though really impractical. also it is NOT a mario star...it's just a random star shaped case.

This is adorable but i agree with TidalWave, why make something you bought bc of its small size, bigger?

that is adorable. but extremely unfunctional. i hate all the cases. the whole reason why i bought a nano is because of the size! putting it in a case twice it's size just seems silly. i'd rather just make a little star pillow :)
