Since giving up my job to become a stay-at-home mom, I haven’t had much opportunity to travel with my laptop. Now, though, I am secretary for a local volunteer association, and use my computer to take notes. The cloth bag I was using to carry my new, larger, laptop just wasn’t cutting it anymore. Enter my new laptop sleeve!
The fabric was a generic brand from my stash, and I used Char’s tutorial on her awesome blog, Crap I’ve Made. Just a note, I’ve yet to see any crap! Case in point, this sleeve is lined, padded, zippered and embellished.
I found curving the zipper around the corners was a little fiddly because my zipper was a tad short, but otherwise, this was an easy project that I whipped up in about an hour and a half, just in time to take to a workshop this morning. Yay for simplicity!
My husband thinks the ruffled embellishment is goofy (especially since I goofed and made it off centre), but I like it, and think I’ll probably add a flower pin or something like Char did with hers.
P.S. Don’t forget there’s still four days to enter my very first giveaway!
