2DS Carrying Case

I saw that I hadn't posted this yet, so here's this!  Just a quick note before we move on, I'll be using the pics for the 3DS XL case for the putting things together part, as I goofed and didn't get pictures of the one I made for my brother.  Anyway, on to the pattern!

2DS Carrying Case

Side: with 1st or 2nd color, ch 5
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across, ch 1, turn(4)
Row 2-73: Sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn(4) F/O if working with 1st color.  If working with 2nd color, ch 1, and move on to Border/Putting it Together

Border/Putting it together:
This is a bit confusing, but I have photos to help you understand what I'm saying here.
In 2nd color, Sc the side strip to the front, F/O.

Repeat with Back starting at row 24. Then sc up the side of the flap, placing 2 sc in 1st coner, sc in next 2, tie down piece (ch 16, slst back down ch, slst back into stitch you chained from), sc until there's 2 sts left, tie down piece, sc in next st, 2sc in last stitch, sc back down flap, slst into 1sc of joining back and side.  F/O.

Carabiner Strap: In 1st or 2nd color, ch 5
Row 1-10: Repeat Rows 1-10 of Side Strip.  F/O, set aside for now.
If using the 1st color, sc up both sides in 2nd color.  If using 2nd color, just sc around the piece.
Side note: Make two of these if you want belt loops, instead.  You may have to make this part longer if you wear a wide belt.

Now's a good time to go ahead and start weaving in ends.

In 2nd color, sc up both sides of Carabiner Strap, then sew onto one of the sides of the case.  If making belt loops, sew onto the back, neer the top and evenly spaced apart.

Last bit, I swear!

At two different points on the bottom trim of the front, join 2nd color, make a tie down piece, F/O, and weave in your ends.
Tada!  You're done!  Feel free to add velcro for extra closing power!
