A Birthday and Laptop Sleeve

Laptop Sleeve with matching Accessory Pouch

My dear friend Lorin had a birthday recently, and I made her a laptop sleeve and a matching computer accessory pouch.  I bought pre-quilted, double-sided fabric to use.  I got a half yard, which left me with enough left over to make an accessory pouch.  (I even have a little bit left!)  As you can see, it's the same fabric I used when I made a tote bag in the spring. 

I have made laptop pouches twice before, but this was the first set with a matching pouch.  I thought the pouch would be good for the charger, USB drive, headphones, etc.  I want to go back and make one for my other two sleeves!  One day...

It closes with velcro.  I couldn't find sew-in, navy blue velcro in town, so I had to settle on black.  Although it is taboo to mix black and navy, it surprisingly looked better than white or tan.

I used purple bias tape for the edging.  I also used it to cover my zipper and side seams in the pouch.   This is a view of the inside, so you can see the bias tape.  

And here's a close-up with some accessories.

I think it looks nice with the laptop peeking out.

Anyway,  I think it turned out very nice.  I might try and sell them! :)
