perhaps like most of you, i searched and searched for a padded laptop sleeve to keep my new laptop safe from the evils of scratches and bumps, but i couldn't find one that really fit my fancy.
so i thought, heck - i'll make my own!
i used some pretty thick fusible web (1.5 yards - i did come out with extra, but i decided to go for the big flap so i'm glad i had enough to go all the way around three times, if that makes sense)
a crib quilt's size worth of batting (wool/cotton, but i just used the cheapest i could find)
and a yard or so of flannel (purple for the inside)
and a yard or so of the printed cotton (from my favorite fabric store, dell fabrics!)
oh and some bias tape. originally, i was going to do something with ribbon and a button, but i got lazy.
*i forgot to say (since i abandoned the button idea) i still need to buy some velcro, but i was too excited tonight to not post it!!*
so here's the final product!
this was my first time quilting like that (i've done hawaiian quilting and a quilt with no quilting) so does anyone have tips on how to make it look better next time? it went from squares to diamonds and that really frustrated me!!
