Last month I purchased a new laptop and I needed a new laptop case to go with the new laptop right? I searched some stores and did not find one I liked, so I decided to whip one up. If you haven't sewn a laptop case before they are super easy. I did not use a template, but if you are one who needs a tutorial, then you can google laptop cases and tons will show up.
I decided to wing it and wrapped fabric around my laptop to see how much I wanted then cut, sewn, see if it fits. I used a 1/4" padding because I am rough on my laptop when I travel and I wanted to make sure it was nice and cozy. If you plan on using padding make sure you add extra fabric to account for the added thickness. For the anal sewer this might seem like maddness, but that's how I roll sometimes. After two hours here is the end result and I love it!!
