Traditionally, kimono-wearers in Japan carry medicine inside an inrou, a small lacquer box that hangs from their obi sash. Dangle an inrou inspired MP3/ipod case from your purse, backpack, or belt loop. Can't sew? Fake it!!! Simply add buttons and a handle to an MP3/ipod "sock".
Feel free to experiment and tell me how everything turned out. I'd love to hear your comments.
