Typewriter Laptop Cover

Here's the new cover I made for my laptop to go travelling in. It's kind of like a sleeping bag for laptops. It came together in about 3/4 of a day, obviously if I hadn't decided to piece it it would have been faster. I used Elizabeth Hartmann's tutorial from SewMamaSew for the construction and pieced the sections based on her measurements. I did add in an extra layer of wadding to make sure it was super snug in there.
 The typewriter fabric is from Melody Miller's Ruby Star Shining range purchased at my real lift Local Quilt Shop Amitie and following my success on Rachel's Handstitched course I decided to try a little embroidery as well... I would highly recommend the course if you have the time to commit to working through at least a few of the projects and the class quilt.
I was really pleased with the result and now my baby can travel in style.
