i made this laptop case for a friend's birthday. it was pretty easy and really fun to pick fabrics to put together.

these are my signature buttons. i love them
and i really do need one, i know from experience. a couple semesters ago i was working in the university preschool. all of the student-teachers had to do a literacy activity where you read the kids a book and then they did an activity that related to the book. so i read "the very hungry caterpillar" and then we made a lifecycle of a caterpillar on a long strip of paper, starting as an egg...yada yada. the "chrysalis" stage was a big pasta shell that they glued down. anyway, i had to make one as a demo, and then i shoved the whole paper in my backpack later on to take home. the pasta shell cracked into a ton of little pieces and i didn't really think about it to vacuum out my backpack. a little while later i noticed my disc drive was making really funny noises and then found a piece of that cracked pasta shell in my disc drive! needless to say it's never worked since. a little laptop case could have saved me the trouble.
gosh, aren't you glad you read that story?
