DS Lite caseDave wrote us to show off his homemade DS Lite case, assembled with $1 worth of fabric, a rustic buckle, some matching thread, and a Ziploc bag (waterproof inner lining). But Dave can't take all the credit ... his girlfriend provided the sewing skills.

So how do you choose to protect your handhelds?
