I was so inspired by the excellent sleeves I saw on here that I decided to try my hand a making one.  It's a hack attempt compared to all of you skilled crafty girls, but it's functional.  I used some denim fabric for the back and a section of an old aloha shirt for the front.  The inside is padded with a sheet of craft foam held in place with Velcro.  It was a fun project and this old dude even learned how to sew a little!

Good for you for going for it! The triangle flap is neat & i think the idea of a layer of craft foam is really great!
