My son got me a new laptop for Christmas…I know, such a great gift! He is 18, so it was a big deal for me and him! Maybe he was just tired of me howling and scowling at my old computer…could be! Anyway, my old computer had a smaller screen than this one, so my old case won’t fit the new one! So, in keeping with my usual creativeness, I decided to make me one! My goal this year is to use what I have and try not to buy more crafting/sewing supplies (I know, good luck with that, huh?).
I measured the computer and added two inches all around, then made a pouch using two fabrics that had iron on fleece attached, sewed it up on three sides and added the zipper (it’s a separating zipper) to the fourth side.
The zip on the top is not perfect…the corners were a bit difficult.
But it adds a great deal of padding to the computer and I love the way it looks.
The zip only goes over the one the one side and is just sewn down on the two other sizes, Since it is so long and a separating zipper, I didn’t want to cut it.
It’s a perfect fit!
And I added a pocket to the inside…
Now I can toss the cased computer in my bag and take it with me safely!
I am linking to these great parties!
