Laptop Cozy

After 11 years of huckery, slow, old PC, we finally gave in and bought a zippy new laptop. Fun! Today I made it a pretty cozy using this tutorial. The fabric is Sandi Henderson's Ginger Blossom. I'm still learning how to use the walking foot to actually quilt things on my machine.

I made a matching drawstring bag for the cords. If you've never done French seams for a tidy finish then check out this simple tutorial. Gotta love the interwebs for improving ones crafting.

(Confession: Somehow I've ended up with the exterior of the cozy about 1" longer than the quilted interior. I'm not sure if it's my dud measuring or something to do with quilting the inside. Anyhooo...not gonna change it.)
