I got a new netbook a few weeks ago, and knew I needed a case for when I throw it in my bag.  I am working on a shoulder bag, and used my leftover material to do a case.  No pattern, and I'm pretty happy with how well it turned out!!


All closed up- I figured an envelope-type case would be easiest to construct.


All cozy and safe!


Peeking out!

I've been in a brain funk/creative slump lately, so it was nice to get inspired and creative enough to do this!

Thanks so much!  I measured my netbook, and basically made long rectangles that were a little over 2 times as long, with about 2 extra inches on each side.  I trimmed one end to make the 'envelope' top, and lined both pieces with fusible fleece for padding.  Stitched the pieces with right sides together (leaving the whole bottom unsewn), then turned inside out and wrapped it around the computer.  Then, I marked where I wanted the magnetic clasp- I installed that to the one side of each piece. 

Then it was back to wrong-side-out to sew up most of the bottom, leaving a hole.  Turned right side out and sewed up the hole, putting a topstich along the top straight edge.  Then I pinned the sides together, stitching VERY SLOWLY through the 4 thick layers.  I left about an inch on the top of each side, and voila!  Netbook case Smiley

Hope this makes sense!  Smiley
