John Spain, a law student out of Tallahassee, Florida, recently put an old pair of jeans to good use when he crafted a DS Lite case out of one of the legs -- most of the rest went to *shudder* homemade jean shorts (hope you didn't cut 'em too high, John). He added extra pockets to the case for games and headphones, and eventually, his girlfriend is gonna sew on a cute button. Brilliant.
John's offering the step-by-step guide, plus a few tips, on his blog. Thanks, John, but we're sticking to the store-bought version.
