Ok, it’s not really leather. But it sounds cooler to say felt & leather than it does to say felt and leatherette (or, heaven forbid, pleather). Either way, it’s a laptop sleeve. I’ve never worked with felt or leatherette and wanted a simple project to try them out. I got a yard-ish of each fabric from Amazon (both about $6/yard) and then found some instructions for a sleeve here.
It’s ok. We can take a moment to acknowledge that she is WAY cooler than I will ever be. But let’s focus on the laptop sleeve, shall we?
K. Hers is made entirely of felt, with contrasting colors. I only have one color of felt and wanted to use the leatherette so I used it for the accent pieces and stuck to one color. I also made mine a little thicker than hers by using some cotton batting in place of the interfacing. Otherwise I followed her instructions to a tee.
I sort of wanted to pose like that ^ with mine just to be funny but, well, who’s got the time, and also that would be really embarrassing.
Only problem is this: I work from home. It’s not often that I will actually need to put my laptop in its jaunty new sleeve to head out and about for a day on the town, you know? So she’s all dressed up with no where to go. Poor girl. Maybe I’ll take her for a spin to the mailbox this afternoon.
