Small Projects – Laptop Sleeves

Often times, I forget the smallest things can bring the most joy. Since I only have small pockets of time these days to work on sewing projects (in between classes and homework), I decided to keep things simple by working on small projects.

One of the suggestions I received at the craft show I did last November was to offer a laptop sleeve in my shop.

A padded laptop sleeve has been on my to-make list for awhile, something simple to slide into my backpack.

I’ve been working on two versions with these crazy fun fabrics. My laptop measures 10 inches by 14 inches, so I made the sleeve 11 inches by 15 inches, a perfectly snug fit.

I made a simple small flap closure with velcro. Just need to add a decorative button to the outside of the flap.

I think this is going to be a good way for me to get through the rest of winter until garden season arrives, with small projects to look forward to.
