New and Improved DS Case

February 13, 2008 at 7:50 pm (Sewing)

After being inspired by this thread on craftster.org: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=227105.0;all

I decided my DS needed a better case where the games would be safer and more secure. After about three hours, I had my final case, and I’m pretty pleased with it.

Here’s the design stage, ready to be cut out—-

Here are all of the pieces cut out and ready to go—-

Some half done pieces—–

And we’re all done!
Here’s the front:

Here is is open and laid out. That bottom flap folds upward to close

And here is the back—-there’s a pocket for all of your essentials (or the manual in this case)

I didn’t use the good fabric on this one because I didn’t think my first attempt would come out good at all. But I like the way it came out, and I’m going to use it for now. If I were to make it again (with the good fabric), I think I would make the body ever so slightly smaller, add some felt for padding in the front and back (just to secure the DS a little bit more), and I’d round off the bottom of the front flap, just so it mimics the overall shape of the bag.
I haven’t added a handle onto it yet, I don’t know if I even will—lets just see how this works for now.

    Wow! I love the DS case. I came across your blog trying to help my ten year old daughter, who is learning to sew this summer, find a way to make a case for her DS. She has even purchased fabric already! Yours looks perfect. Have you written a tutorial or are you will to share your measurements and such? Thank you. Kelly

      Unfortunately, not yet—-I always meant to reconfigure it, but never got around to it!
