Super fast and simple construction. Great for gifts, boutique or sell your own creations on Etsy!
The pattern for this set of instructions will fit your laptop or netbook of any size. Simple directions help you measure the device to be covered and make a custom case just the right size. You can use the same directions to make covers for different devices by modifying the measurements.
You can use this pattern to create a cover with zipped pockets on both sides, or a cover with just the single zipper and no side pocket. Instructions will give the easy modifications.
If you have never installed a zipper, no problem! The method used is extremely easy. If you can sew a straight line, you can make this cover. The inside is fully lined, all seams are enclosed in the finished case and it is fully padded to protect your device. The process is super simple with a professional finished result.
Laptops, Netbooks, Notebooks, Oversized Tablet Computers, who can keep up with all the different sizes! With just one pattern, you can cover these devices perfectly with very simple measurements. When I got a full sized keyboard for my iPad, it was larger than the iPad itself and wouldn't fit in my other cases. Using this pattern, I stacked up the iPad and Keyboard, measured, and made a great case to fit my new gadgets perfectly. Use the same instructions to make cases for all your electronic portables that are larger than an iPad.

This detailed pattern will take you step-by-step through the construction of the cover. Every step is described and a full color photograph is provided to illustrate the step. No assuptions of skill are made (other than operating your sewing machine!) and each step is brief and logically stated in large print.
I have been sewing for interiors for over 20 years and have attended numerous classes, seminars and other instructional venues. I hope that sharing my experience with you in making beautiful items for your home will give you much pleasure and lessen frustration with trying to 'figure out' how to make an item without instructions or with limited instructions.
I also offer sewing tips and brief tutorials on my blog at www.gailadesigns.blogspot.com
