Anyway, I had been schlepping my $60 Lanikai uke all around the city for months without a case. And I was embarrassed by how badly it was banged up as a result.
Imagine my glee when I discovered a website that had a pattern for a felted ukelele case! I mean....right? The only tweak to the pattern that I made is that I felted the handle (which came out a little bigger than I would've liked) because I couldn't find any purse handles at my local Michaels.
This case may not do much to help my uke playing, but it sure does make me skip down the street when I'm carrying it.
