Picture of Leather Laptop Sleeve
Electronics can cost a pretty penny or two (or ten thousand) so keeping them safe from damage is not only smart but necessary. In this tutorial, I'll teach you how to make a laptop/ E-reader/ tablet sleeve out of leather, with hardly any actual sewing and a cool factor that'll blow your roof.

Let's get started.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
For this project, I used

13 inch Apple Macbook Air
rotary blade and/or scissors
cutting board (self-healing ones are best for this)
top stitch or heavy duty sewing machine needle
top stitch or heavy duty thread in any color
sewing machine (but you can hand stitch instead)
grommets package and application tool. (I used 1/2 inch, bronze)

Great job. Simple, yet very stylish.

Where do you get the leather from?

Just keep your eyes peeled for a leather easy chair or a couch/sofa or whatever you want to call it tossed off the side of a road/freeway... I started keeping a utility knife in my veh.. and I just ''skin the roadkill'' so to speak...
