DIY : MYO : Brush Up on Your Craft Skills
Make Your Own from: Knitting | Felt | Duct tape and other adhesives | Paper
We are collecting patterns, tips and ideas from all over the world. Make your own covers from a range of materials.

Of course, this one is actually an iPhone replacement, filled with foam, but I can't see why you couldn't just pop your own iPhone into it instead?
