Could anyone point me to a good tutorial on cross-stitching? I've never done any and I'd really like to train to make me this awesome case aswell..

If the tutorial could be in french, it would be even better, although my english is good, it's the kind of things that would be easier in french  Grin

Has anyone successfully made this with a size 7 grid? Thats all I can find. If so I'd love a tutorial!

I just need to glue in my felt and velcro, then attach the cover, and mine will be done. And yes, it's on size 7 grid - I did have to change to pattern.

SO amazing! I wonder if I could tweak the measurements to make an ipod case for my special someone for Christmas? He just got a Wii and is a bit nintendo obsessed at the moment. At least all his Zelda playing leaves me plenty of time for crafting!

I want a Wii.  My husband broke his PS2 over the holiday weekend (eh, second one he's destroyed due to his own negligence Lips sealed ) and he says he's too lazy to play games on the Wii.  Said he'd have to move around too much LOL Ah, maybe him breaking his PlayStation was a blessing in disguise.  No, wait...it wasn't.  He spent his entire Thanksgiving break playing some James Bond game on my little brother's PS2.  Undecided

Anyway, yes you could definitely use the dimensions of any object and make a case using plastic needlepoint canvas.  That's what I love about the stuff - it's so versatile and easy to use.  Oh, and word to the wise...use a metal needlepoint needle and not one of those plastic ones designed for children.  I went to use my plastic needle (that came with a knitting kit I bought awhile back) and it ripped the plastic line between the grid squares everytime I ran it through.  I switched to the metal needle and had no problems from there.  Also, I was able to make the entire case using only one standard size plastic canvas and still had some left over.  Smiley

a little late to respond, but this is amazing. it's almost a metaphor on life and how even in older things, lessons, people, we find inspiration... yadda yadda

I'm almost done with one on a 10 point grid & a famicom style on the 10 point grid.  I'll post pictures and measurements soon.

I second this request. I can't seem to find a good tutorial (on Craftster or elsewhere) for using plastic canvas. The only ones I can find are basically up one hole, down in the next, repeat until finished, but all the pictures of the completed projects show lots of the plastic canvas in the end (like every other bar) and it doesn't look like this project works that way.
I am definantly interested in doing this because my bf just got a DS lite for his b-day and a little birdie told me there will be one waiting under the tree for me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
