A couple weeks ago we purchased a new laptop. I decided it needed a 'homemade' sleeve using some fun fabric I found in the WalMart fabric department~~ of all places. I followed a great tutorail by Sew Mama Sew that I found on Pinterest.
I followed pretty much the whole thing but instead of using fusible fleece adhered to a contrasting fabric for lining, I used real fleece in a solid color. I also did some "quilting" to sew the fleece in place. (This is the same fleece I used to make the soccer blanket last year). I also added two strips of velcro for fastening to allow a fitted closure if I had a few extra things in the sleeve.
The tutorial was very good and easy to follow. I think it turned out pretty cute and I look forward to making a few more.
By the way, if you haven't discovered Pinterest, its's quite addictive. I have more than 2000 pins, everything from sewing ideas, to tablescapes, to paperscraps, feel free to follow me here. Thanks for stopping by!
