My converted Zippered Binder/dayplanner case for my mini9 - 03-01-2010, 05:52 PM
I needed something to put my mini 9 in that looked somewhat normal/presentable in public. And the Purple crown royal bag I had been using just wouldnt do (lol). So I took an old dayplanner/zippered binder I had laying around, removed the 3-ring binder mechanism, cut out a piece of rubber-like plastic from a placemat and stitch-tacked it in as a liner.
Was kinda quick and dirty, but it fits the bill. Also... it effectively disguises my mini when closed. People will think its just a large dayplanner. The mini9 fits perfectly,but there is no room for accessories, but I dont really need them that much when using it in public. The zipper teeth are tiny and made of plastic so I doubt there will be much wear from them on my mini. The mini fits pretty snug sandwiched inside and doesnt slide around when closed.
Here are the pics....

Note: I was forced to use paint to edit the photos so forgive the horrible crop-jobs
edit: if anyone cares to know... it is a Cambridge brand 3 ring binder/dayplanner from over 10 years ago.
