A pouch for everything and everything in its pouch.

;felt sleeve open
Wonky hand-made charm strikes again. Who needs neat neoprene? Things that need protective cases get felt pouches around here: camera, big ipod (currently not functional but I live in hope), nano, and now the laptop is ready for its ski trip.

Update: Alwen's comment reminded me of something I meant to mention here. I think, in my several years of felting, this was the first project I have swatched/made a tension square for, and as a result, the sleeve felted to the perfect size (except for the flap, which I would prefer to shape a little differently, but that's not to do with the swatching). Sometimes it pays to be sensible.

That is the prettiest laptop covering I've seen. I have a red leather brief case kind of thing but it's big and bulky. I like your felted covering.

The top picture looks like two button eyes and an open mouth!

Felt is so useful for stuff like that, once you work out the shrinkage.
