I came across this leather-like material at Jo-Ann Fabrics and thought it would be perfect for a laptop cover. It's so easy to work with because you can cut it and it doesn't fray...just like felt or real leather.

Step 1: Cut your fabric

Measure your laptop and cut 1 piece of fabric a little bigger overall than the actual size (to compensate for bulk of computer). This will be the front. Cut another piece of fabric, same width, but now about 4" taller than the first piece. This is the back of the cover.

Black indicates the right side of fabric, gray, the wrong side.

(I cut the top of the front and back panel with Pinking shears)
