25+ Laptop Sleeves & Cases: Free Tutorials & Patterns
Posted By Tipnut On November 23, 2010 @ 12:35 am In Knitting,Sewing | 8 Comments
Here are over two dozen sewing, knit & felting tutorials for laptop sleeves and cases (there’s a couple for crochet too). These are my favorite picks of what I found available online for freebies. Enjoy!
Tote : Sew a soft-sided case with carrying strap, zipped closure and pockets to store accessories.
Faux-Leather & Felt : This is lined with felt and edges finished with a blanket stitch in a contrasting color.
Repurposed Jeans : Make this by repurposing denim from an old pair of jeans and line with a pretty fabric.
Easy Crochet : Pretty much made in sc and super easy to make, will also work for an iPod/iTouch/mobile or other gadget.
Made With A Placemat : Lovely padded project with a back pocket to hold gadgets.
Canvas : Made from artist’s canvas and lined with quilted lining (you can paint & decorate it once it’s made!).
Aran : Gorgeous cabled knit with a tip to line it with felt for extra stability.
Crocheted : Nice and thick worked with 3 strands of yarn, button flap closure.
Felted Sweater : An old wool sweater is used to make this, zipped closure.
Zipped Cover : Has a full zipped closure along the side.
Pear : (Knitting). Finished size measures 14″ wide by 12 1/2″ tall after felting.
With Flannel : Easy project showing how to make a custom-fit piece using fabric, flannel (for lining) and a snap.
With Pocket : Features a pocket to hold cords, foldover flap closure with velcro tabs and a cotton webbing handle along the side.
Felted : Mac apple design (cute!) and knitted in the round, double-stranded. It has a zipper around three sides so you can open it right up.
Oversized Clutch : Try faux leather, vinyl, upholstery fabric with a soft felt-type material for the inner liner.
Also check out the goodies for iPads & Kindles , many are easy enough to adjust for laptops.
