Never lose a stylus again!
I lost my ds stylus. The only ones for the original ds were $7 for two! I bought them and looked on ebay for a leash for them. For the price I could just buy more styluses! That's why I made leashes myself. It attaches to the wrist strap holder.
The first one was for my brother. The blue one was mine. Notice my awesome fingernails in the last pic.I'll post a pic of the blue leash attached to my ds as soon as i find it.♥

Note: Please don't sell these. I posted this to save people money. Thanks!♥

  • Step 1

    If it's for an original ds, slide a crimp bead on the wire. Slide the clasp on and run the wire back through the crimp bead. Crimp it. Make sure there is atleast an inch left through the crimp bead.

    If it's for the ds lite, follow the steps except, make a loop about a centimeter long instead of the clasp.

  • Step 2

    Slide the seed beads onto BOTH wires. Continue to slide on seed beads until you have about an inch left.

  • Step 3

    Slide another crimp bead. Slide the stylus onto the wire. Crimp it on like you did the clasp.

Aw, I'd make this for my DS Lite but I;d have to remove it to put it in my hard case for my DS and games (it wouldn't fit because it's a real snug fit case).

I'll have to find a way to make it easily detatchable!

thanks

Thanks so much! Good directions- although I changed the clasp to just a loop on the end, for the DS lite.
