My new 11-inch Macbook Air, bought on a whim when I needed a laptop to take to an evening class. We are a Macintosh house -- so everything is Apple so everything works together.
I used this tutorial-- the Laptop Sleeve Tutorial Link.. Excellent. By the way, the 11inch Macbook Air measures 14 1/4"Long by 15 3/4" Wide with 1/2" SA (Seam Allowances).
Also, did you know the mark of a good zipper is one when you pull the zipper tape apart and the pull doesn't move or slip down? Well, it turns out that the more expensive zippers have locks in the zipper pull. That's why in the 80's the zippers in our pants wouldn't zip all the way up and we were all constantly readjusting our zippers -- Cheap zipper pulls!! Who knew? The things you learn at the ASG Sewing Conference.
I was a little sloppy in the execution, but I can live with it. It's a perfect fit for the Macbook Air! And, this quick and easy project -- I needed a quick craft success fix.
Now, onto another cover for my Kindle.
