My boyfriend really loves two things (well, except myself I hope)
Stitch from disney's film Lilo and Stitch
Apple computers

So for Christmas I decided to fuse the two things and give him a unique sleeve for his Powerbook with stitch on it!

The sleeve is all stitched by me using a kind of thin neoprene, the front has also a fake fur layer (no risk of catching fur in the zipper, I used short haired one) with felt eyes appliqued on top.
On the back I embroidered the apple logo with "Contains the destruction weapon of experiment 627" (if you remember the movie, Stitch was experiment number 626, so my boyfriend must be the next one)



And here you see the sleeve with a laptop (not the right one, I used mine to make photos)

I really hope you like it, it's been a tough one!!
And as always my computer has an old black bag...and I never  make up my mind to do something for mine!

Thanks for the feedback!!
And I have to admit that now that I added a small fabric lip to protect the laptop from scratches he uses it all the timem while before I was terribly angry because after all that work he always left it home  Grin

Haha that rocks! Where did you get the Apple embroidery file? I'd *kill* to have that for a friend's laptop bag.

Well, I have to admit I digitized it myself. It turned out nice even though the fabric I used for the sleeve was a bit too elastic and the color bands are not perfectly parallel. I used the old logo because I preferred the colors, the new one is too boring. I don't know if I've broken some copyright rule, obviously the mac logo is protected and everything but since I aint' selling anything I hope it's all right  Undecided
And (always hoping no rule is broken!) I can send you the file if you show me the finished bag afterwards!  Wink

I would think apple *should* be tickled that you would put that on a laptop sleeve...and since you aren't planning on mass producing them I don't think it should be a problem...

Is it bad that I want a laptop just to have something cool like this to put it in??  I think you must make something equally cool for yourself....
