I have finally gotten around to finishing my laptop sleeve. Hey, it only took me 7 months, but I am proud to say that this UFO (unfinished project) is done! Woo-hoo!
I used Amy Butler's Temple Tulips in Azure/Soul Blossoms that I got for 7.99/yard. I lined it with some yellow flannel that I had on hand and to make it extra sturdy, I used fusible fleece. It was a bit bulky, but my 100/16 needle made it much much easier to get the job done.
I used velcro for the closure....
Is this one of my own patterns you might ask? No, I used Sew Mama Sew's pattern. You can find it here.
A few notes about the pattern:
- I love the measurement part and how you can customize it to fit any laptop. The formula looks a bit daunting at first, but it is super simple and it works.
- The pattern has lots of pictures and they definitely helped me since I am more of a visual learner.
- The instructions are clear for the most part, but I must admit that I got confused at times and ended up fusing the fleece to the wrong panel.... An easy fix, but a frustrating experience nevertheless....
I love how it turned out though! It took me about 2 hrs., from start to finish. A perfect "mind candy" type of project.
