saturday.

One hour before leaving on a trip, my daughter decided she needed
a computer sleeve.
She chose the fabric.
I added batting with THREE long quilted lines.
Remember I was in a hurry!
I added a very simple lining.

Here's the BEST part.
A hairband sewn in for the button closure.
Isn't that a neat trick???



It was then up to her to sew that button on.
She struggled a bit....but she did it!!

No picture of that...sorry....she had to catch a plane.


Now I can get back to my 15 minutes....
cough, cough, sputter, sputter.....
of quilting.

  5. Very pretty! I need to make a new one for my Mac - I made a quickie before a trip out of a pre-quilted piece of fabric but I'd really like to have a real one! And hair bands are great - I've used them on purses for a clasp - I like the way you doubled yours up!
