I’ve been in a real slump lately when it comes to creating things. I just can’t get interested!! And it’s not just quilting- it’s knitting and cardmaking and cooking too. I really think it’s because of the hot humid weather we’ve had. It’s gone on for weeks now with no break. I feel more housebound now than I do in winter!
I’m going on a trip to New York next week (by myself, since Hubby can’t get away from work) and I wanted a nice sleeve for my new laptop, to protect it as I travel.
The summer 2009 Quilts and More magazine has a really nice pattern for a laptop sleeve. I’ve actually made one before…
This was made for my sister, with fabrics she picked out.
Well, I finally broke a little hole in my creativity block and got something done!
I made a variation on the same laptop sleeve using Joel Dewberry “Modern Meadow” fabrics with a dash of Essex linen thrown in! Both the outside and the lining have been quilted with batting, to make it extra soft. I also used velcro instead of a button. I didn’t want anything on the outside that could catch on something.
Hopefully I’ve fully broken out of the slump. I have a lot of projects I need to get done!
