Friday Finish: Laptop Cover

Took a break from spiderweb block piecing to whip up this cover for my new laptop.

I used the same tutorial for this iPad cover (One Shabby Chic) just increased the size of the parts ;-)

upcycled from daughter's school uniform

The above iPad cover and journal cover (again using Rachel's tutorial) were made to have on display at our Maker Faire Orlando booth (which I still need to blog about).  It was a fun challenge to take my daughter's leftover school uniforms and upcycle them into these usable items.  

so pretty!
 Getting back to my laptop cover, I wanted to have a case to protect my newly purchased laptop and its beautiful gelaskin cover.  What better fabric to use than a Melody Miller Cotton and Steel canvas print paired with a bright print from the Cotton and Steel basics line?!

Cotton and Steel fabrics
In other news, check out Frustrated Quilter's Friday post.  I have it on good authority she's having a giveaway of RJR Cotton Supreme solids.  They go great with Cotton and Steel ;-))
Thanks for stopping by,


  1. This is so gorgeous - I do love the fabrics, and your upcycling uniforms is genius. I had not seen gelaskin prior to your column - very nice.

  2. I love your choice of fabrics...all.the.time!!! You have such a good eye when choosing the perfect fabric for the perfect project! I really need you to show me how to make these iPad, Journal, and laptop covers!!!

  3. Cute, cute, cute! I NEED some of that arrow fabric!

  4. Beautiful! I just love your new gelaskin, and the beautiful ipad cover and journal cover!

  5. Oh I need to make one of these for my nook. Would the same tutorial work for that?

  6. Very cool. You are really a sewing phenom lately. I'd better run to catch up! I love the fabrics you used (and love love the Gelaskin on the computer).
