A wee pouch for my laptop


I wanted to make a pouch to protect my laptop when it leaves the safety of home. I couldn’t find a pattern that I liked, or that was suitable so I worked it out for myself.

I had some pretty embroidered fabric that I got at the NEC a couple of years ago.


After a rummage, I found some solids that go with it quite nicely.



I measured the laptop and worked out all the sizes. It didn’t take long to cut out the fabric and then sew them together. I even managed to insert a zip, although that did give me a bit more trouble as it was quite fiddly. I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

It’s not what you’d call a professional finish, but it does the job and it isn’t too untidy. The laptop fits in there and is nice and snug. It’s a perfect fit.


What I’m really happy about is that I started and finished this in one morning. Usually I stop and start projects but this came together so easily that I just kept going. It must be the new machine 🙂
