laptop cover

With work taking over my free time,
I thought the best way to "fight back" was by creating beautiful accessories!
So I sewed a padded laptop cover to transport my computer
from home to work back and forth. 

I used a retired pattern from Michelle Patterns (also known as Keyka Lou),
it was easy and relatively fast (I have less time, my definition of fast is changing!)

The outside print is a home decor fabric, it is similar to this  penmanship village print,
except mine is grey with off-white writing and green seal.
I like the idea of mixing old fashion writing with computer,
and of course it is in French so always a plus!
I checked for possible non sens/obvious mistakes, I did not seen any....but it is really hard to read.

For the lining I used this cool off-white musical instrument print,
while it is hard to see on the picture, the green of the seal and the instruments is the same,
so it goes, right?
Now I need to make some king of tote or bag to carry it....

Happy sewing!

It looks great! Easy and relatively fast are a good thing and a stylish way to carry the laptop is just fun!
