Laptop Under Cover

I was admiring the laptop cover created by Elizabeth of Oh, Fransson! for the Sew, Mamma, Sew! blog... and one day husband asked me when I was going to make a cover for our *new to us* Mac Book. Well, golly! I know JUST the tutorial to use! This tutorial was just the ticket, and very clear and easy to follow. I stopped by my favorite little fabric shop, chose this gender neutral home dec weight fabric called "Chippendale" from the For Your Home line by Vicki Payne. Nothing a guy wouldn't be perfectly content to carry, right?


Its already travelled with us to Lake Norris in Tennessee, and did a lovely job protecting Mac. How long will it stay clean? Odds are, not much longer, but thats ok - that means its getting used! Now go on! Make one for your laptop already!

Great fabric, perfect for a man to carry or a woman. I'll have to remember this pattern for Handmade gifts for men.
