This cell phone cozy is super-soft, as its made from a felted 100% lambswool sweater.
This larger cozy was designed to accomodate the iPhone.
This dia de los muertos themed cozy is one of my favorites to stitch!  I never know how its going to turn out -- I just randomly choose colors and designs.
This little pouch has a tiny felt piece of cheese on the back.

I made these cell phone cozies from thrift store sweaters that I felled. The appliques are made from new acrylic felt (mostly scraps!) and stitched with new, but rescued-from-the-thrift-store embroidery floss. These cozies also fit many mp3 players and ipods. I make some to fit iPhones, as well.

I already have quite a stash of felted sweaters waiting to be made into cozies -- my favorite thrift store had sweaters for less than $1 each last May!
