computer cozy


it sounds much more comfortable than 'laptop sleeve', no?

the apartment is all a frenzy with piles of fabric everywhere and tiny crafting supplies embedded in the carpet. i'm gearing up for the party next weekend and even though i only have 3 rsvp'd guests (ha!) i'm genuinely excited. anyway, amidst all the crazy, i sat down and spent an hour making an easy laptop cover from some ikea fabric and a recycled blanket for padding. after some freehand quilting to keep the blanket in place, i created an envelope design with an easy velcro opening and voi la. should i make you guys a tutorial?
simple and easy and makes a pretty good lap mat.

Don't worry, I still read your blog, but a certain little man keeps me too busy to ever comment.
