Cape Town, South...
End of the month: and its time for my Free Sewing Lesson held at the local library. I had requests for a laptop cover. so here it is. My projects needs to fit in a 3 hour time slot. This original pattern was from a Bernina magazine, and they used a 3-5mm Felt, but I tried to make this project much cheaper, since felt is very expensive. I have made this laptop cover before, using vehicle upholstery and rooflining, to give it lots of padding. that cover works out at about R150 ($15), but the cover I prepared in a kit for the students worked out R70 ($7).
1m sheeting is very cost effective, since it is 240cm wide instead of 150cm like other fabrics. then it will be enough for the back and front.
