Good morning. I wanted to show off what I made over the weekend - an imperfect, but nonetheless very useful laptop sleeve! I've always wanted one of these - my poor battered old laptop gets stuffed into a bag with my camera and various cables and chargers every time I go to work, and it is looking rather scratched and scruffy now.
I did look online for a tutorial, but they all looked rather complicated - with batting and quilting and all that stuff. In the end I just laid my laptop out on the fabric and drew round it. I lined the sleeve with the most lovely kimono silk that I bought on Ebay, years ago when I was trying to learn to make underwear. It turned out to be too small a piece to make anything that would fit me(!) but it was just enough to use as a lining here.
A bit of knicker elastic in the top to hold it all together, and bingo!
I think something must have gone awry somewhere, because the outer fabric wrinkles slightly when I fasten the top, as you can see in the photos. But it will do the job, and i'm quite chuffed with it.
