Hey folks,

Fresh off of making "Lapthongs" (designer laptop covers) for notebooks,
(Check out details here.... https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=29303.10 )

I started coming up with a design for a nice designer laptop sleeve.

Basically, I spend a few days prototyping ideas for ways to make the sleeve light and flexible. I messed around with elastic banding and other ways to come up with a snug fit. I finally found a decent and flexible solution -- a draw string.

I made two designer sleeves. One that is black and another with flowers. I have light batting in the inside to provide a light cushion.

Here are some pics....

Send over any feedback and questions you have. If you have suggestions on making it better, let me know. The biggest challenge now is making the sleeve *snug* for various laptops (I want to make one size that fits all laptops within a certain size range).

Take care,

I like them!  Great job.  When I got my laptop last year I needed a bag and couldn't find a thing to fit as it's a smaller laptop.  I used upholstry fabric for the outside and cotton for the lining and placed flannel or batting (can't remember which) between for cushion.  We travel a lot and mine needs cushion.

I love your drawstring idea!

Very nice Smiley  I got a new laptop recently and was shocked to find that there were few "cute" options.  I'm all for basic black, but geez...I can't believe some manufacturer isn't making a killing off of making cute ones...ANYWAY, your's is very sweet and I like, it, good work!  I did eventually find one that I liked...but you have inspired me to make another one by hand...!
