Hello Craftster community! I've been a lurker for months and I just decided to actually join the community. Being my first post, i can only post links to the pics, not the pics themselves. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Anyways, to the point... my first notebook case!







I made this shortly after getting my MacBook in late 2008. I'm not a great seamstress but I think I pulled it off okay. I'll make a new one soon, because I got so many great tips and ideas from this site that I really want to get back to work! Cheesy

I used faux fur, matelasse red fabric for the lining (provides a little cushion too), and a layer of white plastic in between so that no water or dust can get in. I really love the orange zipper, i think the colors match wonderfully. What do you think?

Being there through the whole process, I can only feel happy to see it so beautifully done.

Expensive brands offering what we want but just won't pay, can provide quite a kick to start things up by ourselves sometimes! It was fun, it was cheap, it's just great.

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.

I think the the colours look good together. The bright red inside is a nice surprise!

I loooove that! It's so fun with the pink fur and the bright colour! Cheesy I wish somebody would take the time to make me a case for my laptop-I'm so busy since I'm working my way through university and don't have much time to craft.. *sniffle sniffle*  Cry

Aw, thanks for the comments!

I love that pink fur. it makes me smile when i see it hahaha! and it does feel quite pillow-y, it's so soft and padded <3 my cat used to love sitting on it.

@dancininthedark, this was really easy and fast to make. i'm sure it wouldn't take you more than half an hour! the catch is it's not really "lined", you can see the seams on the zipper. but it works and it can be (was) done in a hurry.
