Have you ever bought a laptop computer and wanted a case for it that expressed your personal style, or was made in your favorite color, and you just couldn't find one? Well, here is an easy way to create one personalized to your liking. Susi, on justcraftyenough.com had purchased a new Mac laptop, only to find out that they had discontinued the size she bought, and therefore finding a case for it became near impossible, so she created her own. This project makes an excellent personalized gift for any occasion.

 

All the supplies required for this project, with the exception of a sewing machine can be found on the third floor of our brick-and-mortar store, and the thick wool felt is available online on our website here.
(Note: You may have to adjust the measurements of the material based on the size of your laptop or tablet.) This project is fairly straight forward, but the accuracy of your cutting is crucial.
