In anticipation of PAX East this coming weekend, I decided I needed something to protect my 3DS XL when it’s in my bag. I had seen this pattern  for a laptop case before and I really liked it, so I decided to modify it to make a case for my 3DS.

I really like how it came out! It’s actually slightly larger than the 3DS XL, which is too bad because I had been hoping it would fit more snugly. However, I can probably insert something into the case to make it tighter around the 3DS.

The buttons on this case are actually from a collection of my great-grandmother’s buttons, which I posted about here :)

I really, really like this pattern, so I’m thinking of making a purse or something larger. Once you understand how the pattern works, it’s not too hard to modify!

If you want to make a 3DS XL case, here are some basic instructions I wrote up modifying the original pattern here.
