Hello everyone!

Long time no post, ne? So I've been doing random crafts here & there but nothing has really hit me to be creative enough to be worth posting. Until this Smiley

My sister lovesssss Studio Ghibli films and one of her (and my) guilty pleasures is the oddity that is "My Neighbor Totor." For her Master's graduation present (for she is a smartie Cheesy) I decided to make her a DSi case because she was at the time using a beatup ziplock-like bag to carry it in!

The front is the Chu or medium sized blue Totoro with a flower & butterfly and the Japanese characters for "TOTORO!" underneath. The back has the large, Kaa or King Totoro looking all creepy, with a confused white Chibi Totoro & heart floating behind.

Pictures below! Enjoy & I appreciate any comments & criticism Cheesy

This is such a great present idea!  Congratulations on your sister graduating! 

Mind if I ask where you were able to find the good quality felt materials for the DS case?

Thanks so much for the wonderful feedback everyone Smiley <3

Unimatrix, I am glad you like it! Honestly, I went to AC Moore to buy my felt, and doubled it up when I sewed the case so it had some padding as well as give it some aesthetic OOMF. If you are looking for felt that doesn't fray or fuzz as easily as normal craft felt, try looking in fabric stores like Joanne's or even ordering online, like on Etsy. Hope that helps you Cheesy!
