Amy Butler Laptop Cover

Amy Butler Laptop Cover sewn by John Adams, Quilt Dad

Even though John is primarily a quilter, he made Amy Butler’s Laptop Covers for family members and loved the results. John writes, “Overall, I found the pattern to be easy to follow and made both covers, assembly line-style, in one day. The covers turned out to be extremely sturdy and stylish and were well received by their recipients. The pattern is unique in that it is not a sleeve like most laptop cases — instead, the cover is like a wrap that fits around the laptop. I think the pattern is best suited for beginner to intermediate sewers, and would definitely recommend it for the students in your life!”

Info from pattern package:
Rest easy as you’re on-the-move with your laptop and mp3 player nestled safely away in their cover and case. With customized instructions you can make a sturdy cover to fit most size laptops. The large and small mp3 cases are compatible with the iPod Classicยฎ, iPod Touchยฎ, iPhoneยฎ and the Zuneยฎ.
