Electronic gadgets are great and all, but can a laptop ever be complete without a cosy? Of course not.
So instead of teaching myself Illustrator, I've spent time making a cosy for the new - and very helpful - laptop. This fabric came from Purl Soho, and it really makes me smile (though it may be a touch too cute for Jay's liking). A simple vine pattern lines the inside and I used two layers of cotton batting for the top and bottom. A one-button closure seems to do the trick, and the plan was to make this double as a placemat for the laptop when it is in use. And these days nothing is complete without my favourite polka-dotted ribbon. I love this ribbon, and I should probably just buy the whole roll from Designer Fabric Outlet. 5 metres at a time seems silly.
