The computer originally came with a nice black zippered sleeve and you can still use it with this case for added protection.
I originally bought the IKEA bag for my larger Sony Vaio but the bag was a little too short for the laptop to fit comfortably. As a result, the bag eventually ended up in a closet. When I got my new eee pc, I started to shop around for a nice travel bag. What I found though is that most of the bags out there are too big or if they fit my netbook there is no room for peripherals, like my mouse and all those cords.
Suddenly I remembered my IKEA bag and thought maybe I could customize it. For free.
The following steps take you through my journey.
Step 1: Disassemble the bag
Take apart the bag. This took a while but well worth it. There are many parts to recycle for the project and I only used parts from the original bag. I didn't have to add any new hardware or fabric.
Here are are all the components.
