(scroll to the bottom of the post for the link to my tutorial on how to make this!)
A friend of mine commissioned me to make her a tropical themed laptop sleeve. She wanted it envelope style and asked for bright colors and a palm tree, and left the rest up to me.
This is what I came up with!
from the front! i made my own striped fabric because i couldn't choose which color or pattern to use
i really like how it turned out. And I purposely made the stripes different widths
from the back
from the back with the flap open
the inside. the button is just decoration, it really closes with a snap
also, i wish i had a brighter yellow to use here
close-up of the palm tree. those brown buttons were perfect for the coconuts!

*NOTE: the sleeve I made in the tutorial is a different one than I posted here.. sadly, something got spilled on the original one I made in the tutorial before it could be given to my friend, so I had to re-make it. I think I like how the one I posted here looks more anyway
Thanks for looking!
