OK, so I know this is super nerdy, but I couldn’t help myself… I got myself a new (to me) macbook over Christmas and I love it to death. Problem was that I didn’t have a case for it. WELL, I simply couldn’t run out and buy one! (I have this complex where I can’t buy things that I know I can make)

Instead I rummaged through all of my fabric (which I realize every day that I have waaaayyy too much of) and pulled out alot of random fabrics and whipped this up! Some of it is made from scraps of IKEA curtains that I saved when some friends moved into their apartment. It’s got a middle layer of batting so it’s padded, which it needed. The design is based straight off of an envelope, so it was a super simple pattern. and now my beautiful laptop is protected in style!
