I have a new computer!!!

Hello everyone!

I am beyond ecstatic today. I have been using the same laptop for the past 4 years. 4 years is a long time, especially for a relatively cheap laptop. But truth be told, I have always loved Mac's. In fact, a year or so ago, hubby took the Apple sticker that came with our iPod and stuck it on top of the VAIO logo on my laptop. It was there to remind me to work hard and save money so that I could actually afford to get a MacBook. I am proud to say that that day has finally arrived!!!

And to celebrate, I am going to make a nice laptop sleeve. I am trying to decide which tutorial to go with. Help a sister out, would you?

This one is from Sew, Mama, Sew!


And this one is from The Cottage Home:



Fabric-wise, I am thinking about using a pink and teal floral pattern on the outside and pink/white polka dot fabric on the inside. This is my first time making a laptop sleeve. Any helpful tips?

Have a LOVELY day!!!

  1. Hi! Congrats on the new computer! Love your idea to make your own cover. I love the cute factor of the cover from Cottage Home, from the pretty fabric to those cute brown buttons....but...I think those cute buttons could be a pain if you haul your computer around at all; looks like those buttons could snag on everything else. And are they functional (I couldn't tell from the picture)If they are actually used to close the cover, I personally wouldn't want to deal with the buttoning and unbuttoning each time. I'd close it with strong Velcro.
    I LOVE your idea about lining it with pink polka dots!
