The place that I currently works allows us to listen to personal music players whenever we want. When my ear buds died I found a pair of bright pink replacement ones. I decided that since they were already an attention grabbing color I’d make them stand out even more.
This ear bud cord cozy was quite simple to make. Some fun fur along with a strand of #10 crochet thread single crocheted around the cord. At the Y junction split into two and continue crocheting however far up you want.
A simple weave in of the ends and you’re done. Simple, easy, and gets lots of comments. Most people think it’s cool (at least that’s what they say to my face). I originally made it with the thought to use up the fun fur in my stash (it’s not that much stash but it’s hard coming up with projects to use it in so it’s been hanging out in there a long time).
It’s actually proven to be kinda useful as it
cuts down on eliminates the weird cord rubbing against clothing sound these things tend to produce. Also it’s softly fuzzy against my skin (I can’t be the only one who runs the cord down the shirt to the ipod in the pocket, those cords can be really long, and it just needs to be out of the way).
Anyway, like I said, it’s simple, easy use of the horrible horrible fun fur.
