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! :)
