$54.99 for a DX cover? no thanks

That is too much for a cover...
DIY is our best choice.

here is what I made(spent $10.49 and couple hours)

People will be beat down their door to pay that much for a cover, I am convinced that people will pay any amount for anything.

Nice job! Very clever use of a pad-folio.

If you haven't already done it, you may want to seal the cut edges somehow so the material doesn't fray.

Excellent idea. How about some fabric glue for the edges or maybe a soldering iron?

I got this for 17$ shipped a few weeks ago.. prices change all the time but there are plenty of decent cheap cases if you look around.
