Andy the Android Hip Pack

Andy the Android Hip Pack

Andy the Android Hip Pack
My third Android crochet creation, inspired by Twinkie Chan's Cutetility Packs, I've created my own "Hip Pack". I don't want to look like a loser with bulging pockets, so here's a cute way to tote around your Droid X, your lip gloss, some money and your ID, while looking HIP!

Here's the pattern, which is absolutely free :) Or check out my step by step Instructable:
