Pink ZigZags

I've been on a sewing rampage lately, whipping up lots of easy projects. They are rewarding because it makes me feel like I actually accomplished something- the best kind of projects, right?

When I got my new laptop for Christmas I knew i needed to get something to protect it. It was all shiny and new and I wanted to keep it that way.  I could have gone out and bought a cover but I knew making one would be so much easier and cheap.  Its easy to whip up these kinds of projects when you have a fabric hording problem like I do.

A little google search came up with this easy laptop case tutorial.

After creating a little mess on my family room floor (where I have my sewing machine set up 362 days of the year) this baby was done

It has a Velcro flap and a pretty pink fleece lining that makes a soft home for my laptop

















If you know how to sew a straight line I swear you can make this too- its easy peasy!

Happy weekend everyone!
