Furry Monster Laptop Sleeve

A monster case is not a matter to be taken lightly.
Thanks to help from my mom, I now have a DIY furry monster laptop sleeve! It's the coolest (and only) one in town. She is a master of all things requiring sewing (as those of you who've read "How to Tailor a Hoodie,"  "Fabric Origami Iso-Area Flasher" and "How to Tailor a Sweatshirt" already know)!

I came up with the idea for a furry monster laptop sleeve after seeing long-forgotten spare faux fur in the fabric scrap box at home. It had (years ago) been intended to become a toy gorilla for me, but it never got that far. I was sad to see the fake fur sitting there lonely and unused; I decided to make things right by giving it purpose.

Things quickly got rolling, and soon I had all the necessary parts to make my own monster laptop sleeve. The laptop sleeve consists of black faux fur, foam padding, red mesh lining, black zipper and white vinyl teeth and fangs, Its assembly benefited from the aid of more than a few of my mom's industrial sewing machines. It would have been possible without them, but the finished monster would have had less finesse.

I had a spare padded shoulder strap on hand that I threw into the mix.

Yay for awesome accessories,
Baker Gal
