My DIY | Envelope Laptop Case


After wandering through the aisles of Mood Fabrics I spotted this chevron print from afar,  I fell in love, then grabbed a yard immediately to make my next DIY project. I wanted to make the perfect case to fit my HP Ultrabook, and with a few cuts and folds, I had a sew-free sleeve in no time. Supplies and steps below!

    I will be making one this weekend!

    Got your book today. It felt like some golden Manhattan fairy dust fell out from between the pages and landed here in my bushy, eucalyptus-fragrant Brisbane suburb. The book exudes luxury and a feeling of Chanel rather than felt and glue-gun-glue. It is fantastic, inspiring, vibrant, fashionable and I LOOOOOOOOOVE it!

    not very practical to pack and unpack. i’ll skip.

  28. maria says:

    Simply amazing!!
    I’m certainly going to make one for me but maybe instead of glue, I’m going to sew in order to make it more resistant and add a pocket for the charger.

    I will be checking for new DIY ideas 🙂

  29. Margaret says:

    Wow, love this ! You’re a DIY genius <3

    Great idea!! I have been looking for a laptop case a while now, might as well just make my own!


  37. Irina says:

    Love this! Will definitely try it over the weekend .. 🙂

  38. Emily says:

    I’m thinking I’m going to use this same idea to make a waterproof textbook carrier/holder! I live in a very rainy area and my textbooks get damaged easily, so having a simple holder to carry them in when it’s raining will be a lifesaver!

    Thanks for the idea!

  39. very cute and pretty…I’ll have to try this if i find time for Gift Card envelopes.

  43. I’ve just made this for my Ipad and it looks much cooler than anything on the high street!
    I used think wadding for the inside rather than felt and it really protects it too 🙂

  44. Vanessa says:

    Love this idea and love your watch! Where did you get it?

  45. Love this idea as I have a couple of laptops that need covers..I can give it my own flavor by my fabric choice.

  46. nomzam says:

    Simply gorgeous.The colour combination that you have showed in the post. reat blog

    cool handy bags.

  47. Sunni says:

    I love this! I just have a few questions:) where did you get this amazing fabric? And do you have to use canvas fabric or can you use another kind?

  48. Emilie says:

    Call me stupid, but I cant see the tutorial? Just the supplies needed. I’m not the most brilliant when it comes to putting things together without instructions.

    This is pretty frickin’ cute, though! 🙂

      Sorry! The Video did not transfer over when I moved to WordPress, I added!

  49. Katie says:

    What are the measurements you used?

  50. George says:


    Is there any way to add some extra padding protection to this?

    Thanks 🙂
