« on: June 25, 2010 02:12:46 PM »

I got a netbook at the end of May and I knew before I had made a final decision on which one to get that I wanted to modify the front. I can't stand fingerprints and black is WAY too boring for me. I saw a Macbook sleeve in Vogue that I thought was lace over padding and I totally fell in love with it. Turns out the sleeve wasn't lace, but the idea still stuck.

I got a 1/2 yard of lace at Jo-anns, but I honestly could have gotten a 1/4 yard. I couldn't find the double stick tape that I wanted to use so I just used Elmer's glue and then rubbed a little over the top of the lace after running a thin line under the lace. My inside corners don't look gorgeous but I'm one of the only people that will ever see it so I'm okay with that. And I managed to leave the webcam uncovered, so score!

Awesome idea!
I like the idea of using Elmer's glue, it would probably be easier to remove than double sided tape if you decided you wanted a different pattern.
