So, my daughter got a Nintendo DS for Christmas.  A few days later we were out shopping and she begged me to buy a $20 case for it.  I really wanted to make her one, but since I had returned another item for $20 I caved.  That very night she left it on the back porch, when I left the dogs out in the morning they decided it was a fun new toy.  They tore the handle off and made a big mess of it, but somehow the DS and games survived.  (Good thing)

Anyway, I got to make her one like I originally wanted to.  I borrowed the idea for the game holders from here. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=252889.0 (thanks Jilden)  The yellow fabric and zipper came from a terry robe that was my grandmothers.  I didn't have any other yellow that I liked.  Oh and I didn't applique the owl it was already on the fabric. shhhhh.

the back


the back pouch opened with all of the cool little pockets to hold games


inside with room for DS and charger and perhaps a few more small items

Thanks for your nice compliments.  She loved it.  She managed to stuff a digital camera and (pretend) cell phone in there too.

This is so much better than the store bought one.  Do you still let the dogs play with the other one?  I would.  Love the owl!!!

Funny, but the dogs aren't interested in the other one anymore.  (Maybe if I put it back outside they'd want it.)  Guess they already had their fun.  Now they are stealing boxes of nails off the shelf and scattering them all over the porch.  Labs are great! 

I love the owl too, wish I could claim it as my own work, but this was so much easier!

This is so lovely !!! I like the back pouch with all the little pockets ! What a clever idea!

The dogs found the good use for that bag you bought !
