My modified 3DS case, guaranteed to be the only case for the 3DS you'd ever need

    So I've been wanting to show this off since I've finalized modifying my carrying case for my 3DS, you should check it out, I have an imgur gallery here that goes into detail about my case and what changes I've made:

    Long story short, I had a regular 3DS, upgraded at some point to a N3DS XL, liked the case I had, but needed to alter it to fit my XL size model. And as I also got an R4 Flash Card and CFW with EmuNAND, most the slots for the game carts became unnecessary, and I was able to alter what their place and purpose was for.

    I only just got Pokemon HeartGold and the Pokewalker the other day through a trade with a member here (ElyosOfTheAbyss), as such, I only just recently finally finished modifying this case/folio.

    If you're curious as to why I'm posting this, well its because I hope it might inspire some people to make alterations to their own things to better fit their needs. But also because I get a certain kind of satisfaction managing to get everything I could need for my 3DS all in one case, and I want to share that with all of you, it's very pleasing to my senses to see this all bundled so perfectly together, I hope you can understand and appreciate that kind of feeling.

    I like your stylus choices..
    I recently ordered myself these:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    As for the case, Is it just fabric? Or some sort of drop resistant material? (I'm talking about the outer part of the whole unit..)

    I think the sleeve is too much hassle, one more step involved, two if you count putting it back on

    Sleeve is simpler than it may appear. I don't disconnect it from the velcro, you can slide the 3DS in and out of the sleeve while its stuck in place, making it real easy to slide and out of, trust me when I say it's not a hassle at all.

    I like those stylus options you have there, I'd consider replacing my blue Wii U stylus with one of those, as I bet I'd utilize it more. In terms of the fabric, if you meant he fabric holding just the 3DS its, some type of suede. In terms of the whole unit, it is some type of fabric covering some tiype of material that is strong enough that it wont fold. The folio case I use is a fairly common carrying case if you've ever seen it in stores, it is indeed made of the same material as what you see there.
