Envelope laptop sleeve

In the last hours of Memorial Day, on a whim, I decided to make a sleeve for my laptop so I wouldn’t feel as fearful taking it with me. I had a simple envelope shape in mind, and here are the results!

I made it with leftover batting from my nephew’s quilt and fabric from a couple of other projects. It was simple; a rectangle piece sewed to to a house-shaped piece, with a snap added.

I learned that laptops, unlike bodies, need almost no ease. I added an extra inch to both dimensions and could immediately tell that it wasn’t needed. I just accommodated for the depth of the laptop and that was that! A perfect-fitting sleeve and a great way to get rid of some fabric scraps.

In other news, Me-Made-May 2012 is drawing to a close! Daily outfit documentation has felt like a real undertaking but somehow, this month has flown. As Modest Mouse says, the years go fast but the days go so slow.
