Ever since my first iPod, I’ve been frustrated with my headphones getting tangled. Recently, I had the idea to wrap them around a spool, then make a pouch to house the neatly wound earbuds. It would keep them more organized and safely stowed.
First, I selected the medium template, to try a few design variations.
But it was going to cost $140!!! So….
I chose the smaller template, and made only one design. I added a bunch of buttons and logo patches to use up the scrap material. (Because, why not?)
Then, I ordered it in felt and leather, to have an example of each material.
Overall, I was frustrated that Ponoko started emailing me non-stop asking if I needed help. Then, there was no way to get a quote for a larger quantity without signing up for the paid service. And- it is CRAZY expensive. Here’s a taste of life after ITP with no laser cutter! Stay tuned for the project arriving in the mail!
