Christmas eve my little one was off with her nanna and I had this sudden *bright idea* to make her a little wallet for her NintendoDS games. Truth be told, I had tried to purchase something similar and found nothing! I asked her current fave colour (it changes ever few mins Wink) as she walked out the door, and I got the reply I expected, pink  Roll Eyes I walked in to look at all my fabric and spotted this ugly pink, stripy and spotty fabric that she chose when fabric shopping one day. Seemed like a good time to use it!

I did kind of draft this first, meaning I measured how big I'd need the pockets, roughly how much gap between, and how much for a flap, then added those measurements. Had I been thinking ahead I would have allowed some storage for a spare stylus or two also (the pens).

My daughters remains unfinished as I can't find my basic snaps! I didn't plan ahead with hers very well. I was sooooo proud on Christmas morning when I gave it to her, unfinished and all, and told her what it was and she started pulling all the games cartridges out of the cases and putting them into the little wallet. She makes me so proud! After I sew on the snaps I have some ladybug buttons I'll add to the top for a bit of fun. She is only 5! Smiley

We do christmas with my close family, and my cousins 10yr old got a DS too, so I asked if she'd like a wallet for her game cartridges. Her reply was a very bland "umm. yeah. ok". I made it anways. Now, someone please tell me how to do bias on corners, cos I just tucked and folded it and you can tell it's not right! Her case came together easier, but also cos of the bias there was no folding right way out involved like with the first one. There is so much more I could have done, and probably will next time, but for my first 2 completely winged attempts I'm pretty pleased!

My daughters NintendoDS games wallet being held closed with a sewing pin.. yet to be finished

You can see how rushed it was, and I didnt allow enough room after turning out so added twill tape! haha

Holds 12 games, and if you put one in the wrong pocket she gets mighty upset!!

For my cousins little girl. See my bad bias corners? EEK!

Both together. They fold quite flat which is great!

I bet you wanna know how I made clear pockets? I cut up one of these!!

Fabric details;
Sorry people! Both fabrics were purchased at Spotlight (australia) and the Cherries one is a quilters cotton, the ugly pink one is a dress making fabric of some description (I'm not so knowledgable with fabrics) it has a paper sound to it but is quite thin. Neither selvages have any details.

Can't sleep. Must craft.
