Laptop sleeve

In two weeks I will be embarking on a trip to Rapid City, South Dakota for 4th of July. What better way to spend an America Birthday by watching stuff explode over four president's heads carved into rock? My boyfriend and I will be flying to Denver. When I travel, I really like to be prepared and chic. A few months ago I switched from an old model of a MacBook Pro to one of the newer ones at work, however, it no longer fit the felt sleeve that I made for it. Besides, that felt sleeve was really tacky looking.

I began to scour the internet looking for a laptop sleeve that was affordable, when I realized that I had everything I needed to make one. On a whim, I bought some adorable Russian doll fabric and some pretty yellow batik-like print fabric. I sewed them together with some of the brown felt that I had left over and made a pretty cute laptop sleeve.

Cute right? I love it. It fits my laptop. Plus how could you go wrong with fabric with Russian nesting dolls all over it?

Adorable huh?

Several months ago, I made the comment that I was in a "creative funk". Well, this laptop sleeve marks the end of my creative funk! I am so excited about how well it turned out. AND it was so easy!


  1. Love the laptop sleeve! the Russian dolls look so 3D. I like the Batik fabric too.

    That's so cool that you'll be seeing the fireworks over the Presidents. I wanna see pictures!!

  2. Love it! Goodbye funk!

    mom approves, you did really good, it looks cute.

  4. Hey Alyson,

    Super cute laptop sleeve! Where did you get the fabric? I feel like a total stalker, but I hope you will forgive me for that. (Found your blog through Facebook)I just moved to Nashville 3 weeks ago, and I've been trying to learn how to use my sewing machine. I want to sew pretty things too. What's the best fabric store around here?
