Last night I went, with my sewing machine and lots of stuff in tow, to visit my friend Crystal from Crafty Ave. I wasn't sure what I wanted to accomplish, but I thought I should at least take my sewing machine and try to figure it out. See my sewing machine once belonged to my grandmother, and although my mother has assured me (many times) it is a very good one, and works perfectly well, I was a little nervous to get stitching. However, last night (after figuring out how to re-thread/bobbin the machine) I discovered just how wonderfully it sews! I will have to take a photo and share the machine, it is quite lovely, and it must be 30? years old (mom, help me out with a comment below?). Anyhow, I have wanted a case for my laptop for quite some time, so I decided to freehand it, and see what I came up with.
piece of fabric I got from a local thrift store (don't worry Crystal, I washed it first). Also, I only had burgundy thread, as all the thread Crystal had didn't fit my machine. So it isn't the prettiest, but my laptop fits, and I am quite pleased! And it was aptly named a laptop cozy by Mr. Crafty Ave (hehe, thanks Mr.).
Thanks! Write you soon :)
