This listing is for a DOWNLOADABLE PDF pattern only! You are NOT purchasing a completed Laptop case! By purchasing this pattern Linds Handmade LLC grants the purchaser a non-exclusive, non-transferable, simple right of use license to use the sewing pattern for personal or limited commercial use. The rights to reproduce, publish or distribute the sewing pattern in whole or in part, to allow third parties to use it, to edit it or to change it in any form is strictly prohibited.

With this purchase, you will receive an instant download PDF pattern with colored pictures and step by step instructions on how to make your own padded laptop cover. This is an intermediate pattern, being that we insert a rounded zipper where accurate seam allowances will affect the overall look in the end. We’ve included dozens of pictures to accompany each step, and for the first time ever, we’ve also included “retractable” pattern pieces that will allow you to create a custom fit for *most laptop sizes! Cutting measurements are also included within the instructions as well as a simple formula to calculate the correct size if you prefer to just use a ruler and rotary cutter. As with all our patterns, we have a “how-to” video showing this pattern being made from start to finish that can be found on our YouTube channel, “Linds Handmade Designs.”
It features a zippered main compartment with 4 interior anchors to keep your device stabilized inside. With its slim profile, it’s perfect to throw into a backpack/bag and go, or use the convenient carrying handle located on the spine. Finished size is dependent on your laptop dimensions.
*Please note, due to its slim profile and not having any gusset, this pattern is suitable for most laptops UP TO 1” thick. If your device is thicker than 1”, this pattern may not fit well.

I can always count on Linds for the best patterns and videos. I bought this pattern after struggling and failing with another pattern maker's laptop case. None of those issues here! And it was so easy to customize! I plan to make many more! This one was cotton woven, but I can't wait to try in vinyl. Sewed along with the video and I had no issues at all!!!
Love all of her patterns, easy to follow.
Nicely written pattern.
Love this pattern. A bit tricky in places but great tutorial.
