Laptop Cozy

I've linked this post over at cheap chic home for Fabric Fun Thursday- check it out for more great sewing ideas!
I've had my Mac baby since Valentine's Day (Thanks hubby) but couldn't find a bag that I liked or wanted to spend $50 on. Those things can get really pricey. So I decided to make one of my own, don't know what it took me so long. It was very easy to make.

Fabric: 2 fat quarters for the outside
flannel for the inside, or any other soft fabric
Matching thread

Measure your laptop; the circumference of the closed laptop, from the latch to the hinges and back around plus 2 1/2, the width of the laptop plus 1 1/2.

Mine was 15 inch MacBook Pro. Make sure to add an extra inch for the seams.

Cut two pieces of outside fabric and two of the inside, unless you have a big piece, you won't have to cut multiple pieces

I think I did it the hard way the first time, but take one inside piece and one outside piece- right sides together, sew leaving enough room to turn right side out. Repeat to the other piece.

Take the two pieces now and sew them matching sides together- just sew the two lengths and one bottom, leaving top open.

That's it! I'm still considering putting a flap on the top with Velcro and applique of the APPLE. But I haven't done it yet. It fits perfectly snug and I love having a cozy for my baby.


  1. How cute! There are two women in this household who could use one of these. I'd love for you to link up with Fabric Fun Thursday :).

  2. So cute! I just got a laptop and wanted to make something like this, it's perfect! Thanks!

  3. OMG we have been trying to figure out a way to keep the toddler from opening the laptop when we leave it on the table. Why didn't I think of something like this!? Thanks for the idea!
