(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 Smiley i really like how it turned out. And I purposely made the stripes different widths Tongue


from the back


from the back with the flap open


the inside. the button is just decoration, it really closes with a snap Wink 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!

CLICK HERE for my video tutorial on how to make this: http://www.youtube.com/user/soreribsin?feature=mhum#p/a/u/1/ijVnShTsPcs

*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 Tongue

Thanks for looking! Smiley
