3DS XL Carrying Case

Whoot!  A new post already!  It's kinda a re-tread of the last pattern I posted, but I wanted to share this with you anyway!

3DS XL Carrying Case

H hook

Back + Flap:  with 1st color, ch26
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across, ch 1, turn(25).
Row 2-24: Sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn(25)
Row 25: Dec, sc to last 2 sc, dec, ch 1, turn(23)

Row 34: Repeat Row 26(15)  F/O, set aside for now.

Front: with 1st color, ch 26
Row 1-18: Repeat Rows 1-18 of Back + Flap, F/O, set aside for now.

Side: with 1st or 2nd color, ch 5
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across, ch 1, turn(4)
Row 2-61: 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 18. 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.
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!
