I thought that it can't be that hard to make one myself! It turned out to be relatively easy to make, at the same time a lot of fun and also I got to choose what cover I wanted. Cheap, personal, cool and you don't even need a sewing machine!
Step 1: The book
I used: 10 x 13 inches for my case (MacBook 13-inch screen)
The thickness of the book does not really matter since I took the cover apart and put 2 zippers all the way around. You can choose a book with a thicker spine if you want to keep it.
Step 2: What you need
- 2 Polyester zippers (22 inches long)
- 2 sheets of sm'art foam
- 1 inch wide twill tape (2 yds. long)
- Thick thread
- Sewing needles (1 small & 1 bigger)
- Glue gun with hot glue sticks
Step 4: Rip them out!
Step 5: Drill the holes
Step 6: Sew the zippers to the book
Sew the ends together and then sew the other cover to the twill band. It is a bit tricky when it comes to attaching the second cover but open the zipper up and make sure you match the covers together so they fit together when you close it again. Start sewing at the same spot as you started to attach the first cover.
When you do this, you must pay attention to how thick your laptop is and therefore how wide the zipper and twill band have to be together. Keep in mind the thickness of the two foam sheets.
