While the Arduboy fits nicely in my wallet (a Dynomighty Mighty Wallet), I wanted to experiment with a more standalone case for it. So I finally put my sewing machine to use and made a literal pocket for my Arduboy and wanted to share.
If you have an old swatch of leather, you can make one too.
- Cut two 75mm x 100mm rectangles,
- Mark an 88mm x 60mm rectangle within, justified to one short side.
- Run a couple stitches along this line. Don’t start at one end; start anywhere else and double it up back to where you started. It’s stronger and easier to hide the knot.
- Trim outer excess 2mm away from stitching.
My leather was 2mm thick. but if you use thinner leather or vinyl, consider marking an 87x59mm stitch line. It may take a while for the leather to learn the new shape too, so don’t worry if its a little tight at first. just don’t force anything. You don’t need special leather tools if you don’t have them (I don’t), just go slow.
