Old Laptop Sleeve, New iPad Sleeve!

Since our devices are getting smaller and smaller. I have started to reuse old laptop sleeves and make new sleeves for smaller devices. You get a new sleeve and you don't have to start from scratch. If you have the Sew Spoiled Laptop sleeve ePattern it will tell you how to measure your device and get the right measurements for a new sleeve.

Step 1: Open the laptop sleeve and pull the lining out. Next open the lining with the seam ripper.
Step 2: Turn the entire sleeve inside out.
Step 3: Cut the laptop sleeve down to a smaller size.

Step 4: Sew around entire laptop sleeve, leaving a hole in the lining to flip it right side out.
Step 5: Flip the sleeve right side out.
Step 6: Sew the lining hole closed.
Step 7: Reuse your sleeve!
Ta Da! I love reusing materials and I get so attached to the fabric. It is great to be able to give an old laptop sleeve life again, as an iPad sleeve.
Best Wishes!
