Laptop Sleeve

I love custom orders! I recently got a request from a friend to make a padded case for a Macbook. I immediately thought of Keyka Lou's latptop sleeve pattern.

Her only request was that it be blue. So I picked out some gorgeous blue fabric that I had bought on my last trip to Joann's. I bought a ton of it because I loved it so much (I might make a pillow with the rest).



I used my Denyse Schmidt "Picnic Fairgrounds" fabric for the lining. I love how the yellow contrasts with the aqua.





And instead of the velcro closure, I used the double button windup. I had seen a Fossil Tech cover that had one and fell in love with the look. I used some giant wooden buttons. I kinda like the mismatched look. I didn't go too mismatched though because I didn't want to have an unhappy customer! lol



Can you tell I love Fossil? On that note, I need to take a moment to brag a little. I can brag right? It is my blog after all. My husband bought me this gorgeous leather purse, wallet, and butterfly earrings from Fossil for our 6 year anniversary.





I love the fabric pompom and the striped lining on the bag! Isn't he the absolute bestest?! I wuv him sooooo much!! Have a great night!
