computer sleeve

I interupted my quilting "MoJo" today
and made a computer sleeve.

This is a project I should have done a while ago....
But I DIDN't.
Do you ever
DRAG your feet?

I made one for my daughter a year or two ago...
and her friend wanted one too.
Hey!
Isn't it NICE when the kids like what you make??
That doesn't always happen!!!

I used some hair bands for the button clasp.
Tricky......huh?
Aaah!
You probably already knew that trick!!!

O.K.
I'm done with another fun project on my to do list!
Only 20 million more to go!
:)

  1. This is great! My work finally bought me a laptop near the end of the year last year (I'm a traveling teacher...) and I desperately need to make a sleeve to put it in. Guess I should add it to my list! The hairband is a great idea, too, which I never would have thought of.

  7. That is so cute. Don't you love the little fun projects in between? And I never thought of using hair elastics. Aren't you clever! Dollar store, here I come.

  10. Beth, I've had short hair for years so I never would have thought of the hair band idea. Thank you. Thank you to Sarah Craig for the shopping trip too.

  12. I've never heard of using a hair band - how clever! Making an iPad cover had been on my list for over a month now, but still, i haven't gotten around to it. Maybe this weekend, if incan drag myself off the iPad long enough to sew.
