Iphone cases from bike tubes

Inspired by this Ipod nano case, I decided to try making a case for my iphone out of scrap bike tubes and/or tires (every bike store seems to have tons in back). Here’s my favorite version: the tube goes in the tire, just like on your bike:)

That version’s a bit bulky, so I typically use this slightly svelter sewed-together affair:

    even though I am no fan of “i” anything, that case just doesn’t suit the relative beauty of the phone.

    Is this a joke?

    It is, without doubt, the least skillfully made item I have ever seen on your site.

    Beat me to it. Is Make really so desperate to blog about ipod cases made out of bike tires and old juice boxes? You’re getting pretty lame, guys.
