Do you like the style? Anything that you are looking for in a case that you can't find out there?

I've decided to put them up on Ebay, so if you are looking for a case that is a little more fashionable - have a look

Very nice looking. If I hadn't already ordered a sleeve (waiting for it now) I would try one of yours. I will keep yours in mind though, in case the one I ordered doesn't work out.

Thanks for the feedback !

I have a few more up for grabs in different fabrics and will also have another design with a handle later this week.
I've sold 3 so far, amazingly all in Australia!

It's OK Pickles... I won't be jealous if you want to replace mine with one of hers... :roll:

In fact, I kind of want one of hers too... ops:

Thanks - glad you like them

What do you guys think about the price? What would people typically pay for a Netbook case / sleeve?

It's hard to compete with the mass produced sleeves out of China that sell for $9.99, so trying to differentiate my cases by using quality fabric and being hand-made...

Psyopper - just realised you made cases also! Hope you don't mind my touting my wares on these forums...

Nothing like some healthy competition I suppose

Debbie

All some people want is a cheap case. A $10 case is more than sufficient for some. And there are some good quality ones out there.

Others, like myself, we're willing to pay a little more for a custom made, quality case. So really, the sky is the limit, within reason. I paid $25 for my current one, not including shipping, and I think it was worth every penny (check my post in psyopper's forum for pics). So much so that I am having him do a custom job for me that will no doubtedly be worth every penny... I can't wait.

At the end of the day, as long as your covering your expenses and making a little money, whatever is reasonable to you. Would you pay $100 for your sleeve? Would you pay $50? What about $30? Would others? I think those questions will help. Of course, feedback from others is always a great help too.

Actually, I am in love with that black weave one you made. Have you started thinking about making them for the Mini10's.
