This idea is from Kathy Cano Murillo, or Crafty Chica (http://craftychica.com/) for a laptop sleeve. It's two pieces of fabric with quilt padding/lining/whatever the soft cottony stuff is inside between them to keep the laptop all safe and whatnot.

I tried sewing it on my machine but when it came time to sew the bottom part together, I broke a needle! So the two sides are hand sewn. I still like it. It's the second time I've used my new sewing machine this week (just bought it). Havent sewn since 8th grade (11 years ago) so I'm slowly relearning how not to stab myself with needles or sew through my fingers.

Here's the link to the pictures (I'm still new so I can't post images directly yet):
