Using this tutorial:
http://www.crapivemade.com/2010/07/zippered-laptop-sleeve-tutorial.html

I first made incorrectly and then unmade and then made again this laptop sleeve:







The best part is that the lining fabric was given to me ages ago and the flower fabric was a find from goodwill on a half price day!  I got two or three yards for about a dollar!  This was my first zipper and, well, let's just say that I hope next time it's easier.

Great find on the fabric!

I'm planning to make a laptop sleeve for my brother but I can't decide whether to do this sort of design or a slide in design with velcro flap.

The zipper was a learning curve BUT I made a second one for my MIL as an xmas gift and it was a lot easier!!

A laptop sleeve is on my list of things that I'd like to try to make.  Thanks for the post - I like the fabric you chose.

I can tell you what I used and then tell you what you should use!  I used regular cotton batting that I would put in a thin(ish) quilt.  When I made the second one I used the same thing but ALSO used fusible interfacing to keep it in place.  Both ways work but fusible fleece interfacing does exist despite the fact that I cannot seem to successfully purchase it even when I go specifically for that...  ahem.  A light interfacing with a thin batting (warm and natural is what I use) worked great!

Awesome! I do have fusible fleece! I get the same way, go to the fabric store for one thing and come out with 15 other things, except what i needed! LOL
