Nintendo DS Carry Case

I made this personalised Nintendo DS carry case to store my daughter Anita’s DS, recharger and games. I converted a small metal  case and naturally she totally just loves it! I used bright summery colours which totally suits her personality and am entering  the following challenges in the hope of winning :

To make the games folder I used this clear plastic pocket sheet that usually I use to hold my ATC’s. I purchased this at EB Games in Australia but you can buy them usually as a baseball or trading card holder .By adding some Velcro dots the DS games don’t fall out and as all you Mum’s out there know these games set you back a small fortune and are so small and easy to loose.This has worked out to be an excellent storage solution by being both compact and easy to see at a glance if a game is missing!

I really enjoyed making this project for my daughter and even though it took longer than I expected it is an amazing result and really cute, bright and happy addition to our home and has the added bonus for Anita & I being a little more organised !
