But just think of all those electronics that need some protection. Just slip your GPS/PDA/cell phone/etc. into a nice little cozy. Yeah, with all of that super soft minky lining…..your electronic will love you.
So necessary, right?
Would you like to make one too?
- scraps of cotton fabric
- scraps of minky fabric
- sewing machine, scissors, thread, etc.

(By the way, the construction of this is exactly like the diaper case found here. If those directions were confusing, I demonstrated the process here a little differently but it’s made the same way.)
Cut out a front and a back piece out of the cotton and the minky. Measure how big you’ll need your front and back piece and then add a 1/4 inch to all sides for a seam allowance. Make the back piece about 2 inches longer so that it can flap over the front piece to close. I made my front piece 4.5 x 5.5 inches and my back piece 4.5 x 7.5 inches. So if you’re making a cozy for your Garmin GPS (standard…not widescreen), these dimensions should work great.
Then sew around everything again with a zig-zag, just to reinforce it.
Then slide in your GPS/PDA/cell phone/etc.
Enjoy your weekend.
