J's Laptop Cozy

J got a cute Apple iBook a few months ago, and has been lugging it around very carefully. Over the holidays, he asked me to make him a laptop sleeve. I wanted to find something that matched my sewing skills (early intermediate) as well as his needs - something that protected the computer but could fit in his actual school bag. We also didn't want to find something too gender-defining, so i went on the web and searched around.

I found this great tutorial. His commentary was a bit much for me, but i loved that he reused a pant leg and an old sweatshirt: A project perfect for my Restructured Projects. I followed the instructions pretty much to the T, but i did add a pocket to the front of the sleeve.

Whew, that's one thing off my list!

Vania now your are in my area (computers). I think I could use one for my ibook at the cottage. Enjoy your blog, it obviously requires a lot of work. Great to see that you've made it to print.
