Blurry laptop sleeve progress

Sorry for the blur. This is the felted laptop sleeve for my Macbook, currently drying. It felted down to the right size, so my math worked! I think it could probably felt slightly more, because I can still see the vertical “grain” where the stitches were, but I can live with this.

The top is held together with safety pins so that it will dry tall enough. The rubber bands are not part of this project — they are on the safety pins for another project, so I left them there.

I will probably sew a zipper around 3 sides of this, instead of just leaving the opening at the top. I have a long zipper with a nice metal zip on it already. Hey! I should get an apple-shaped or computer shaped charm to put on the zipper pull. 🙂

That is NOT the Macbook in there. It’s two books that were about Macbook size, sealed in a plastic bag. I did not want to risk my Macbook getting moisture damage!

One note, the slight reddish bit in some of the apples is because I was weaving the strands in while I was knitting. This turned out to be a bad idea because now you can see the red yarn through the white. So if you knit one of these, don’t do that. :/ Maybe I will embroider something over those later, like initials or something. I don’t know.
