Most of them are available from arts and craft, homemade goods site etsy.com and of course the favorite homemade Android item of the year from Androidswag.com So Check em out
Because Androids need cozies, too! Designed with input from a T-Mobile G1 user, this gadget cozy features the adorable little Android robot in green felt on a green felt-lined white cover with contrasting stitching. Android robot is stitched onto a white accessory pocket, perfect for carrying your ID or cash.
The artist uses eco-friendly felt, made with recycled post-consumer plastic bottles. The felt is available in the colors shown in the last image; click on the image to zoom in and see your color options (image #4 shows an example of a recent custom case made with lime green and magenta felt). If you do not indicate alternate colors, your case will be made using white and lime green felt, as shown in the first 3 images.
Example shown was made specifically for the T-Mobile G1 and measures approximately 3 1/4 by 5 1/4 inches, but please note that covers are made to order. The artist is able to cases for any Android device. The artist also says it takes an “evening or two” to make these custom covers so order early for the holidays.
This custom made pillow is large enough to rest your head, or be a throw pillow. It’s small enough to pack in your suitcase when you need your Andy fix.
This is a 100% handcrafted, 12″x12″ square pillow, made with the softest fleece and the fluffiest polyester filling, making it firm yet springy.
The artists shipping policies say they ship within 4-7 weeks except for the holidays but do ship quickly. Please go to their etsy page and send them a message before you order to make sure you get it in time for the holidays!

The artist, Maggie, has hand crafted this Red Angry bird based on the character from the Rovio Smash Hit Angry Birds. This Angry bird is 5 inches round and made of wool. It’s stuffed with quality stuffing and made with “love”. Maggie doesn’t say how long it will take to ship, so again make sure you contact the seller to guarantee delivery by the holidays.
