Step 1: Suppies!
Lots of Felt! - 2 Green Sheets
1 Light Green Sheet
1 Yellow Sheet
1 Red Sheet
1 Bright Blue Sheet
1 Black Sheet
1 White Sheet (Optional)
Lots of Thread - Light Green
Sewing Machine (Optional)
Your Handheld Device
Step 2: Measuring!
I made this for my 3DS so my dimensions were about 5 inches x 3 inches and 1 inch in thickness.
Step 3: Cutting the Base Rectangles!
Take into account the thickness of your device. I find that anything under an inch in thickness, you only need to add an inch to each measurement. Anything an inch or over you need to add 1.5 inches or more to each measurement.
So! For my length, I got 5 inches. My device thickness was 1 inch. So I adjust my length measurement by 1.5 inches to make 6.5 inches!
Cut all the way across the sheet.
Step 4: Cutting the Base Rectangles Pt. 2
Again, I added the 1.5 inches to my original 3 inch width measurement to get 4.5 inches.
You should be able to get two rectangles cut from the first green felt piece.
Step 5: Cutting the Base Rectangles Pt. 3
In the end, you'll have 3 same sized rectangles cut from your two pieces of green felt.
Take the rectangle you wish to make your back pocket with and cut about an inch of the top off. This pocket can hold the charger or any games you may want to stick in there on the go.
Step 6: Cutting the Screen!
Once you have it cut out to size, grab some light green thread and sew the rectangle to one of your 3 larger darker green rectangles.
NOTE: Here is where the optional white felt sheet comes in. Instead of making a lighter green screen you can opt to make a white screen. Both look good. Even if you use the white sheet, you will still need some light green to make a button down the line.
Step 7: Black Pieces!
From this piece cut out a two thin strips (one cut in half), a tiny circle ( the button), two tiny ovals (eyes), and a small curve for the happy face.
Sew these on with some black thread. Places accordingly as shown in my picture.
Step 8: Yellow Button!
From that piece, cut out even smaller squares from each corner of it so that all you are left with is a yellow cross piece.
Use yellow thread to sew this cross accordingly as shown in my photo.
Step 9: Red Button!
Shape this square into a circle.
Place accordingly as shown in my photo and use some red thread to sew it on.
Step 10: Blue and Green Buttons!
Cut out a small triangle from the blue felt and a small circle from the light green felt.
Use the blue and green thread to sew them on accordingly as shown in my photos.
With that, the face of your case is complete!
Step 11: Pin it all together!
Take the smaller pocket rectangle and place that at the bottom. Pin it all together to you can get to sewing it!
If you have a machine, you can cheat and use that, or you can continue sewing by hand. Just sew the bottom and side edges leaving the top open to put your device into!
Another option you could consider, for those who don't like to sew, is to use fabric glue for everything instead of thread. Would probably go a lot faster!
