More Laptop Covers – EEE PC

This is the laptop sleeve that I made.

This is the teeny, adorable EEE PC that sits in the laptop sleeve that I made.

This is the poet/mom/blogger (Jan!) that writes on the EEE PC that sits in the laptop sleeve that I made.

This is the company that will be publishing a book of poems written by Jan on the EEE PC that sits in the laptop sleeve that I made.

OK, while I have lofty dreams of constructing this post entirely of House-That-Jack-Built-style sentences, it’s far too late in the day, and I’m way too tired (too much US Open!), so it’ll have to end there.

You can’t tell from the pictures, but this is a wee little laptop sleeve for an 8″ x 10″ laptop.  I don’t own an EEE PC, and it’s always a little more difficult to make things for items that I don’t have on hand to spot check size along the way.  Even though this mostly works out for me, recently, I made an 3G iPhone cover that was just shy of a craftastrophe.  (OK that’s dramatic.  It was very, very snug, and the iPhone was trapped momentarily until extensive jostling finally set it free.   Could this be one more reason to get an iPhone?).   Sometimes measurements alone don’t offer the same confidence that sanity checking  along the way with the actual item manages to instill.

But this laptop sleeve?  It fits like a glove.  Phew!  I was guided by two themes identified by Jan: blue and polka dots.  I think Denyse Schmidt’s County Fair fit the bill perfectly.

It was fun to make, and it’s nice to think that it’ll be traveling with the laptop of a lovely and accomplished poet!

The EEE PC is apparently quite popular these days, because I’m getting more and more requests for bags, covers, other accessories.   I think I’ll be making a few more of these and putting them for sale in my Etsy shop one of these days.

    I hear you on having the item there to double check – especially if you’re just wingin’ it. And hey – now you have a pattern right? Next time will be easier!
