I got a new laptop!  And I needed a cover to take my computer to and fro.  To make it pretty and original, I added some embroidery. 



The actual case is knitted out of bulky weight yarn; it was faster, and chunky enough to protect the computer.  The embroidery is stitched on in wool.  The flowers are free-hand stitching.  And I'm very proud of how it turned out!

Here's the front in detail:


Thanks for looking!

That is so cute!  I completely love it.  You just have no idea.  If I could ever have one of these for my little baby, I'd be set.  Fantastic!
