Quilted laptop case

My lovely husband bought me a MacBook last Christmas- it is oh so good! It also gave me an excuse to start another project, a quilted laptop case.

I started making this case last week and finished it yesterday. Let me tell you; every single thing went wrong while making it! I couldn't find iron-on fleece interfacing so I bought normal polar fleece instead and used utility fabric to make it a little sturdy, the back and front pieces didn't match in size although I cut them  carefully. Then came some zipper problems. Later I realised I didn't have enough fabric to make the handles wide enough, blah blah...I thought about throwing it out of the window a couple of times but I didn't :)

I used the backing fabric on the pocket as well. I love polka dots!
I love the pockets. They are deep enough to carry a notepad and the charger comfortably. 

I haven't followed any tutorials to make this case, maybe I should have... at least when sewing the zipper. See how there is excess fabric around the zipper on the left corner? Next time I will find a solution for this too. 

Generally, I am quite happy with the result even though it is not the best looking case :) The graphic design course I enrolled in is starting today- hurray!- so this will be pretty handy when carrying my laptop to and from the uni campus.

Please don't forget to leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Thank you!


  1. What a great case! For having troubles it sure looks nice :)

  2. This is lovely!! I can't believe you didn't follow a tutorial or pattern! :) it's perfect :)

    1. Thank you Gemma! I think I wanted to see if I was able to make it by myself without depending on a tutorial. I sure managed it but shed some tears along the way hahaha :-D
