I like to take my laptop with me to classes, but if I'm going somewhere else and want to take it, or if I have to carry more than usual, I like to take something besides my briefcase-like laptop bag, usually a tote. However, I'm always worried the laptop will get damaged since there isn't as much cushioning - the solution, of course, being a laptop sleeve. I was going to buy one, but I instead decided to use some of the lovely canvas I got from Ikea and a few of my fat quarters to make my own. It also gave me a chance to try out the new serger I got for Christmas!

Here it is turned inside out so you can see the lining. I just used a couple of fat quarters I had in my stash.

Right-side out, with the flap undone. I was going to have a loop to go around this big cute button, but instead I decided to just make it decorative and use a snap instead - one side of the snap is sew onto the flap, the other glued onto the back of the button. You can also see my new photo box - 2 pieces of foam board and 4 book lights from Dollar Tree, and you have yourself a clean background and much improved lighting for photography!

I finished the flap with the serger stitching visible, I rather like how it looks - I was also careful to line up the heart pattern to make it look extra nice. In case you're wondering, I used iron-on fleece as well as quilt batting - both left over from previous projects.
