I hope this is the right place to post this up.
I stayed up the whole night to complete this laptop case. My dad kept asking me to go and sleep but when I get really excited about a project I just have to finish it
even if it means sacrificing sleep.
Its inspired by http://www.redmaloo.de/
I took a crash course in sewing here, basically learning two stitches. I only know how to do a running stitch.
Here it is closed with my laptop nestled inside cozily.
A side view, with my imperfect stitches.
I used velcro to seal it up. Adhesive-backed velcro. Bought it at about 30 cm long? I cut it down to size.
And.. This is how it looks opened up!
Haha! I love how this opens up. I'm looking forward to school just to show off this!
So basically I close it by folding in the side flaps then the longer bottom piece and then the top!
Total cost for this project? Singapore $6! All materials bought from my favourite shop, Daiso Japan!
The chocolate brown felt is 64 cm by 64 cm (25"X25") and is about 2 mm thick. and the warm pink felt is 70 cm by 50 cm(27"X 19.5") and 1 mm think. Both are polyester but different to touch. The only reason why I got the 70 by 50cm pink felt was because they didn't have the colour in the 64cm by 64cm size.
So I had to do abit of trimming to get them equally sized.
As I said the velcro is about 30 cm long and is also $2!
I can't wait to go back to school and get asked where I bought this. Then I can proudly say I made it myself.
(My school students can be so consumer-ised and own expensive branded stuff)
Thanks for looking!
