I recently found Craftster.org in an attempt to find others and swap ideas on homemade Nintendo DS Lite cases. This is my first posting and I hope there are other folks out there who can provide feedback and share their ideas on the personalized case thing. I was at my mom's and didn't have access to a sewing machine, so this is very low tech: two layers of velux blanket material (available in small squares at Michael's), coordinating pink and purple embroidery floss for blanket stitches around the edges, and a shiny glitter button on the top flap to act as tie down for braided floss ties. The dragonfly was a shiny object that caught my eye at the checkout - its just a pin-on for added flair. Please send any/all ideas for upgrades for the next gen (two friends want one for Christmas). Thanks for your input!

This is very minimal (holds the console, extra stylus, a few games, and a USB charger).

Very cute!  Smiley

 I'm sure your friends will love getting one.  I haven't worked with felt, and can't offer any new ideas, but I'd bet if you searched through this forum, you'd find some!

I also made a DS case! I knit it though, and it's more of a cozy. The only pictures I have also include a picture of an ipod cozy and a teeny little vibrator cozy, so you've been warned!

Thanks - I love Velux and have always wanted to make something kitschy with it - this was the perfect target.

Creature,
Fantastic cozy handiwork!  I LOVE the fact that you made them for all your critical home electronics.  Is that the cool lipstick-lookalike vibe I see?  You are very talented and ever so twisted - nice job!
