Ok. So this is the first time I'm posting anything on Craftster - but that's mainly because this is the first thing I have EVER made (and completed). I have this horrible habit of breaking everything I come in contact with, so I've stayed away from sewing machines forever. But I finally gritted my teeth and dove in and this is what I came out with!
The story behind it: I bought my boyfriend a Nintendo DS for Christmas. But he didn't want to take it around with him without a case. So I looked everywhere for a case that he'd like (he's really picky) and couldn't find one, so I gave up and made him one. Yay! lolhttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v31/kricket_usa/Crafts/DSC01352.jpg
The front - his favorite character, Toad.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v31/kricket_usa/Crafts/DSC01351.jpg
The front flap lifted up.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v31/kricket_usa/Crafts/DSC01353.jpg
The back flap. Beginning of Toad's most famous quote.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v31/kricket_usa/Crafts/DSC01354.jpg
The back flap lifted. End of Toad's most famous quote. How depressing. lol
And my favorite part:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v31/kricket_usa/Crafts/DSC01355.jpg
The games fit PERFECTLY in the back pockets (it's sticking out a little to show you, but I swear it's PERFECT. haha)
I sewed it all together and used iron-on transfers for the images and words. My printer was running out of ink, so my sister and I had to hand paint all of the letters and Toad so that the colors were right. lol Then I used bias tape to line the whole thing.
Please don't ask how I made it because I really have no idea.
Thanks for looking!
