Make Over – Meat Boy Case

Howdy, y’all!

Today’s Make Over is about the Meat Boy DS case I made a while back. To refresh your memory (since it’s been almost 2 years!), here’s a picture of it:

Meat Boy DS Case

I originally made this to cover my 3DS but I never really liked it that much (let’s be real – it’s a little weird). So, it was placed inside my small box of finished items that I tend to forget about.

UNTIL NOW!

My husband was actually the one to remind me about it. About a month or so ago he picked up where he left off in Pokemon Blue (Or was it Red..?). Not important – but it’s from when he was 18! Anyway, since he was playing a  Gameboy game, he needed to use an older device. He didn’t want to carry around the massive OG Gameboy so he settled for the Gameboy SP. He realized that he doesn’t own a carrying case for it and asked if I had anything available or if I could make him one. Then he remembered I had made this wonky DS case and he wanted to see if it fit (width-wise, obviously). So, we journeyed to the Island of Misfit Toys – I mean, the box of crap – I mean, the box of finished items! and pulled this bad boy out.

Since the case was much too long for an SP, my husband suggested I tear out half of it to get to the appropriate size. He also requested that I have the button on the backside so the front just had Meat Boy’s cute little face.

He also suggested I make a Bandage Girl for our other SP! Haha!

Are you interested in seeing the play-by-play? No? Tough! Here it is anyway:

First off, I needed to see just how much needed to be removed. It was a good 2-3 inches!

Next came the unraveling!

Ewwww it looks like braaaaiiiiinnnsss!

Next, I made the loop on the front side instead of the back and attached the button.

Annnnnnnnnnnd all done!

Perfect fit! And Meat Boy looks much better! 🙂

What do you think? Better, right? His face could probably use a little update, but whatevs.

I like it!

Have a great weekend!

And Happy Anniversary to my husband and me! ❤

Smooches!

    I think he looks cute. Only suggestion I’d make is to add a flap so that the device is fully covered. I think he looks more like the character now that you shortened him up. That’s always a bonus 🙂

        lol that sounds like me! I get these ideas and the list gets so long that I fear I will never get to make everything on the list! On the up side, that means there is always something for the next project 😉
