Now that summer is here I have been thinking of travel. Specifically, I have been thinking of things I will need to make my travels go more smoothly. This is one of those items. I have wanted to make a travel case for my computer for a while and I finally got around to making it. I found this tutorial. What stood out to me about this tutorial was the shirred fabric embellishment. It went together fairly quickly.
The zipper application was straight forward and went much more smoothly than I expected. I cut the fabric for the shirring smaller than the pattern called for and so it doesn’t have the same look as the pattern. The other bad thing is that I forgot to take note of pattern on the outside fabric. I should have centered the pattern more when I cut out the fabric. I was just in a hurry to get started and didn’t think about this at all.
I used fleece for the inside. This will keep my computer nice and cozy while it travels. I used another bit of vintage trim from my stash and it seemed to go with the fabric really well.
Now my laptop is all set for travel!
