Sample Padded Netbook Cover
July 20, 2009
I got netbook for my birthday! Since it is so shiny and cute, I didn’t want it to get all scratched up or damaged when I was carrying it around. So I decided to make a padded sleeve for it for protection. I used this super cute mushroom fabric called Tillbrook Toadstool in lime green and just a bright pink solid for the inside lining. In between the two, I used fusible fleece as the padding, and to give it some body to stiffen it up. I am mostly happy how it turned out, if I did it again for this netbook, I would make it about an inch shorter in height, just for a closer fit. Width wise it is perfect. I also would have boxed the corners to give it a little depth. Overall, this was a pretty simple project. I am thinking of offering these in my etsy shop as custom orders, that way I can make them to fit the customer’s specific laptop dimensions. I feel like this is a useful thing that people would also like to have fit their personality with the fabric choices. My etsy shop hasn’t sold anything in a while, I’m hoping this would help boost my sales.
