    get the same material and make one a little bigger to put my phone with the tough case of case-mate :P
    It shouldn't be too hard if you know anyone with a sewing machine and a little piece of neoprene is fairly cheap at the right fabric store. It's around $10 for a foot of material off a 48" bolt (4 sq. ft. or 0.3716 sq meters for you metric folks). That's enough material to make 18-19 of these things at the stock size. No wonder why HTC is giving them away for free!

    Just turn the sleeve inside out to see the construction details. You could easily take it apart with a stitch remover to make templates for larger sleeve...I was just thinking that custom colors/silkscreens would be cool. I like the #6 lime green color...I'd never misplace my phone!!

    I'd just use a leather punch...something like this:



    Just put a piece of cardboard or thin wood in the sleeve (yes, it's a good idea to remove your phone first :P ), get the tip of the hole punch red-hot with a propane torch, and it should cut right through the sleeve like butter. Or you could skip the torch and hammer it through if the punch is sharp enough. Then melt the edges of the hole with a lighter to prevent the fabric from fraying...

    FYI...the sleeves are no longer free. Called HTC to replace the one I lost...they cost $7 each with $7.99 for shipping.
    Bought the AT&T N1.
