Laptop cases

A while ago I made a sleeve for the laptop I bought when I got a new job (I blogged about it on my quilt blog here). I had so many comments about it at work that I decided to make another one to add to the shop. I used some colourful Gerbera fabric panels that I bought a few years ago and that were patiently waiting for a project such as this:

The case is lined with a soft green fleece and has an envelope style flap with a velcro strip. You can find it in my Etsy shop here.

This is the one I made for my laptop – sadly I don’t have anymore of this fabric…

I ride my bike to work (as befits a Dutch woman!) and last week we had quite a bit of rain. I don’t mind getting wet so much as I change clothes when I arrive anyway, but I don’t want my laptop to get wet! So today I made an oilcloth case:

I have some more of this oilcloth, and also of the green fleece that I used as a lining in this case too, and initially I thought I might make another case and add it to the shop. However, it was such a nightmare to make (sewing fleece and oilcoth together is not fun!) that I don’t think that is going to happen…

Take care,
Linda
