Altered Felt

I received my felt piece from Liza Yet of Artzdescrap last week for their 6x6 altered felt challenge. I had several ideas on my mind but I ended up making this:
It's a case for my ipod shuffle. I found it in my bag & it didn't have a case. Since this gadget is so small, it's quite difficult to search for it inside my bag. That's when I thought of creating the case which was perfect for the challenge. Since the felt is limited to 6x6 inches, a small ipod case will be just right. I stitched two colors of felt together (pink for the front & purple for the inside). I also added a felt flower with a button center & a musical note as embellishments for the inside. The front is embellished with white felt which I cut into a rectangle (with the sentence "I love music") and another one shaped into a circle to make it look like the ipod. I also stamped green flowers on the purple felt which aren't quite visible in the picture (hehe). I stitched the velcro snap ons on the strap of the case. Here's the front view of this project:
