My mum got a DS for her birthday in late november and wanted a case for it.  I didn't find anything pretty in shops and i left it a bit late to order off t'internet so i made one despite not having done any sewing except turning up trousers (badly) since i was about 10.

It's grey felt lined with dark navy fleece with a bit of turquoise ribbon stuff. Oh, and lots of buttons!

The process went something like this...
1. wrap around DS to measure the size
2. sew on lots of buttons
3. sew around it inside out, with pocket piece in between the felt & fleece layers, turn right way out
4. sew up rest of it, add in bits to make DS pocket and sew on ribbon edging
5. attempt to iron the seams using hair straighteners because i don't own an iron (i'm a student, it's perfectly acceptable hehe!)

It wasn't a very precise project  Tongue

Here's the pictures
