A New Sleeve for a New Laptop

What came first the chicken or the egg?

Well, I 'm not sure whether my laptop or the idea for a laptop sleeve came first?

But I do know I had seen the tutorial on "Oh Fransson" for a laptop sleeve some time ago.

So once the new Macbook had arrived I knew I had to make one.

The Kaffe fabric was picked up at a Boxing Day Remnant Sale.

And I did have to buy a second hand flannel pillow case from the Op Shop (I think our northern 

neighbour's call them Goodwill Stores!)

Does that count against me as a fabric purchase, because, remember,  I am on a fabric diet???

I suppose I could have used something from my stash but I wanted a really soft and well worn piece of 

fabric and this was just perfect.

Even the color matched!

Not bad, as it was THE only flannel pillow case at the ONE Op Shop open for miles around!

Its a pretty snug fit but it does make my laptop kinda snuggly!

So I can cross that off my 'to-do' list.

And just before I go I want to thank my followers- it is such a lovely feeling when I log on and see another new friend signed up to follow me!

It is a slow process but so satisfying - THANK YOU!

Have a great day!



  1. Lovely and bright fabric! And the pillow slip pink is just right! You must be very pleased to have found such a good match! Like it!!

  2. Very nice. And remember that most diets have "cheats." And it didn't go in stash, either.

  3. You do realise that now I HAVE TO MAKE ONE TOO! I have my little white MacBook (love it love it love it) and I do have a briefcase affair to carry it around in, but hey... I'm a quilter... I NEED a quilted cover!!

    BTW.... if you see a big green queenslander home floating past, it's mine! It is raining, raining and raining some more here.... absolutely sick of it now!

    The creek at bottom of our road is running high and fast, so I might be stuck at home for a while if the road goes under.... more sewing time for me!

  4. OOOooo! i new computer. love it. i've been a long time PC user. i need a new computer and have been saving for a mac! so excited. one of these days.

    love the cover/case. beautiful fabric!

  5. Great idea. You can make one to match all your outfits!
