a pretty cool life.: Laptop case

Laptop case


I'm a lucky duck and got my Mother's Day gift early. 


Of course I wanted to pretty it up and make a case.


So to make the case, I followed the same directions I posted here, just adjusting the measurements to make it larger to accomodate my computer. 


This would have worked perfectly, had I taken the gigantic extended life battery into consideration. 


Whoops. 

Another craft fail for the books.

So back to the drawing board. 


It's okay, I think I like the second fabric even better :)

  1. I'm sure you will find a use for the 'failed' case. You can always gift it to someone.
