Tutorials - Earbud Round-up!


Back in the day, it wouldn’t be uncommon to see a teenager walking down the street with a cord hanging from their ears to some kind of musical device. Technology has certainly changed things. Now I’m seeing more and more women and men (my age and older) walking past my house, waiting for a bus, and even strolling through the grocery store with that same cord connected to their ears! 

Now that most people have smartphones they can be listening to everything from music, to podcasts, to audio books. Yesterday I was in WalMart and an older woman, probably in her 70’s was listening to something with her earbuds. I was so tempted to ask her what she was listening to, but I didn’t.

I carry my earbuds in a little zipper case that I made (last tutorial down) in my purse, which keeps them nice and tangle free. Here is a nice little round-up of some very different, fun, and free tutorials to keep your earbuds neat and tidy.  

Here’s a cute one that has been knitted.

Do you like to work with leather? These look pretty simple and cute.

How about this folded flower. I love the use of the KamSnaps with this one.

Are you not a fan of sewing? How about these cute cases made from mint holders!

This one is too cute for words. It’s a felt owl. The tutorial calls for wool felt, but I would use my plain old acrylic. I think it would be just as cute.

This cute floral earbud case doubles as a business card holder too!

Don’t forget mine! This is one of my older tutorials, but still useful! It can hold other things such as sweetener packets and even coins.

  1. There are so many cute accessories for the ear buds today. Since I am always home I don't have a need for them. How fun to see an older woman with her ear buds! I wonder what she was listening to too.
