A no-sew laptop cozy

Filed Under: Crafts, computers and internet, geek it yourself

felt laptop sleeveMost of the laptop sleeves I've seen are boring. I'm sure they do the necessary job of protecting the laptop, but seriously, can you say boring? On a quest to find a pretty alternative to the boringness of laptop sleeves, I stumbled upon a no-sew laptop cozy made by Derek and Lauren over at Design*Sponge.

Derek and Lauren got their inspiration from redmaloo, who happen to carry all sorts of accessories for electronic devices. Since they were in a DIY mood, they decided to create their own felt laptop sleeve, different of course from redmaloo. They used two pieces of felt, scissors, an iron, sticky Velcro dots, and Stitch-Witchery, a double sided fusible interfacing. Their finished product will keep their laptop ding free.

As advised in the comment section of DS, you may want to come up with a way to protect your laptop from damaging lint. If you're in the mood for a new laptop anyway, learn how to properly kill your laptop, courtesy of Diane Rixon.
