Thank you so much! I appreciate the compliments. Y'all just made my day! Grin

They are actually Nintendo DS cases that I made for SMLounbury's kids.  This is what they look like on the inside:





Please ignore the messy stitches at the bottom of the Batman case- I had to stitch it up by hand because my machine refused to do it.  I think it was due to the fact that I had to use Batman flannel because I couldn't find ANY Batman cotton.  I was so disappointed, but I think it turned out alright anyway.  As far as the snaps go, my husband helped me.  Cheesy

Oh wow, those are AWESOME.  Look at all the pockets for games!  And the stylus!  I made my son one out of felt with elastics to put the games in, but this is waaaaay better.  He takes his DS EVERYWHERE.  I might actually have something I can make him (he's 14) that he'll use and that won't be so uncool he'll get called names at school.   Undecided  Thanks for the inspiration!  We need a board just for crafty gift ideas for men and boys...maybe I'll start one, or maybe you should, with these!

Did you use cardboard inside the fabric, or just heavy interfacing?  And what kind of snapsetter?  I bought the little blue one from Joann's and dritz snaps.  Crap, let me tell you.  I don't know if it's the setter or the snaps, but I ruined every set trying to get it to work.  I really want to find a way to set snaps, so any help you can give will be deeply appreciated.

There is a thread on here for gift ideas for men in the Occasions and Holidays Board If you look at Misc. there are people talking about crafts for boys/men.

I can't get that blue snap setter to work either  Angry  Buuuut I recently had a friend give me one of the plier styles. If I remember I will try that one out tonight and tell you how it went.

LOVE the Hello Kitty DS case!  I would have one on my list if my daughter didn't already have a case.

Thank y'all so much  Grin

I used this tutorial:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=304534.msg3517609#msg3517609

But I didn't add the straps to make them into purses and I didn't had the little wrist strap.  It was SO simple to make and her directions are very easy to follow.  I used a light weight pellon (iron on interfacing) and then fun foam for the inside.  I got the fun foam at Walmart for like $5 for a package of 12 legal-sized sheets.  You can probably get it individually at a craft store.  For the snaps, I used pearl snaps and I didn't buy the little tool kit.  The tool was extra and the box had directions on the back. 

This is what we did:

1. marked where the top (pearl part) was going to go and pushed it into the fabric. 
2. then took it's other half (the female part of the snap) and pushed it down on top of it with the fabric sandwiched in between.
3.placed the strap where the pearl side was facing the table and put fabric underneath it so it wouldn't crack and beat the other half with the rubber end of a screw driver.

For the male half of the snap:
1. we left an opening in the ds case and pushed the male half onto the fabric first
2. then pushed its other half into the other side of the fabric.  (on the inside of the ds case)
3. we took a thread spool (because of the little hole) and stuck it on top of the male half to keep it steady
4. then beat the top of the spool with a hammer. 

I hope my directions make sense.  It took a couple of tries for us to get it right.  I think we ended up breaking 2 or 3 before we figured it out.  Just make sure that you have plenty of padding underneath the pearl part and it shouldn't break.  Smiley
