I've had my MacBook for less than 24 hours and I already had to make something for her. I bought this crazy fabric at Hancock intended for another purse based on the skipping bag tutorial, but I never got around to using it. Then surprise! My dad goes with me to buy a MacBook during our tax holiday. I told him I was going to make a bag, and he worried about durability, so I just used the foam sleeve that it was in when I opened the box along with my fabric.


Finished Product!
I put this together this morning with the supplies I had, but I think I'll need to make a different strap. Right now I'm using one from my dad's old brief case.  Tongue


Detail of fabric; I absolutely love that two Apple decals were included. It was just what I needed to finish it off.


Velcro flap, just because I'm too lazy to put in a zipper HA


This is my favorite part. When I'm sitting somewhere for a while, I can charge up without taking it out of the bag. When I want to protect the drives on the side, I can just slide the macbook into the sleeve upside down. It wasn't originally going to be like that, but after I put the foam lining between the two layers of fabric and turned it out, it wasn't enough material to go around.

Thanks for looking Smiley

It looks great!  I love that crazy fabric too.  I don't mind the strap at all.  Smiley

Thanks!
My dad loves the way but now thinks I should make it even more durable, because he's paranoid about it getting bumped where it's exposed :/
yay for repairs...

It turned out really well! It makes me want to make a nice sleeve for my tiny powerbook (poor powerbooks and their obsolete-ness) I really like that your sleeve has a strap and a removable strap at that! Cheesy

My MacBook saw that and now she is jealous....I suppose I'll have to think of something to make for her.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
