Here are some pictures of one of the cases I made with your tut:





I ended up making this one with elastic over the game slots.  My daughter had an issue with her games falling out of the slots.  I'm hoping the elastic helps hold them in.

Thanks again for sharing the tutorial!

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

Beautiful!  You did a great job on it.  We too are having trouble with games slipping out.  I ended up handstitching the pockets so that games would fit snugger. Hope the elastc works! Glad the tutorial is still getting used!

Added: OMG Luckdragon, I just realized the change you made to the strap - one instead of 2 - and hooks, what a great idea!  Now you can have the strap or not have the strap, love it!

I am so excited to have found this tutorial. I have some pokemon fabric that I have been wanting to turn into a DS case for a little friend. Thank you so much!

Note to anyone making this; I and others have found that the game pockets are not tight enough, so to make them snugger, I suggest maybe sewing two seams between each of the pockets approx 1/8" appt, or maybe using a zigzag stitch to make the pockets themselves a little smaller.  My daughter's games were falling out all the time, and I hand stitched an extra seam to snug up the pockets (since I did not want to rip it apart) and it really helped!  Smiley

I made one of these for my little sister (she's in 5th grade). I left out the straps because I want it to be more like a clutch plus she doesn't take it anywhere because she'd lose it. I also called a ceasefire with my machine because it kept wanting to tie knots in itself during the top stitching. And I'm not motivated enough to do the topstitching by hand. So the one side is sealed, but the top stitching ends on that side. Being 10, I doubt she'll really notice or care.

Also, I used magnetic flap closures because I had a couple spare from my purse projects.

Do the magnetic closures cause any problems with the DS?  I tend to avoid them around electronic equipment, and was wondering if it's ok after all.

I still don't know what the verdict is on magnetic closures, but as a rule I avoid them too when its for electronics, I'm not willing to risk it. A button(s) could work instead of the snaps.

The magnetic closures you can get for purses and things are not strong enough to effect electronics. They need to be very strong to do so while the closures are just strong enough to hold together.
