patchwork obsession: part 11


Quilted laptop case with zipper.

Patchwork pieced from leftovers of my log cabin scrap challenge blocks...so these are the scraps from the scrap quilt. (I mentioned that I am frugal, ya' know.)

The best part: the laptop actually fit inside when I was done, but it wasn't too big, either. I made this the day before we got internet in our apartment, so now I may be toting my computer to the library just to use my new bag. :)

WOW! You just never cease to amaze me.

And you made it from the scraps of your scraps? Now, that is awesome.

Great idea! I don't think Jason would want me to make one for his laptop, though! He he.. it might be a bit girly for him! Yours, however is awesome! It also might be good for toting home those quilting books from the library...and the ones that the kids pick out, too...

Look at you being so productive while you're out of your home! The bag is perfect - love the colors, the patchwork detail, and the sizing. You better take the laptop to the library now that you have such a cute carrier!
