From Core Fabrics:

Protect your laptop or tablet in style with a DIY Laptop Sleeve! Our free Core Laptop Sleeve pattern is perfect for creating a snug and stylish sanctuary for your device. From start to finish, we'll walk you through the step-by-step process of constructing the Core Laptop Sleeve. If you prefer to learn from videos, we've also included a sew-along video for you to follow along with.

Designed to work for a wide range of woven fabrics, this pattern comes in two sizes. The small size is suitable for a 13"/14" laptop or tablet, while the large size is perfect for a 16" device. It has a convenient front pocket that can hold a charger, phone, or small notebook. The sleeve features a flap closure, which can be fastened with a button, loop closure, or sew-on snap for added security.

Recommended Fabrics: The Core Laptop Sleeve can be made using any stable woven fabric like cotton or linen. Depending on the fabric you choose, your sleeve can be a soft shell or a more structured case. If you want a puffy sleeve, you can quilt your fabric and add batting. If you don't want to quilt, you can use our reversible quilted jacquard.
