Mystery Project - Finished !

Hi,

Finally I can show you what I made with the oilcloth I received last week on the mail. 

Hola !

Finalmente os puedo enseñar lo que he hecho con la tela plastificada que recibí en el correo la semana pasada.

This is it, a laptop sleeve cover. Actually, for my new Macbook. 

Es esto, una funda para mi portátil. Bueno, para mi nuevo Macbook.



I'm not 100% happy with the result but I think I got myself into a quite difficult task for a first time sewing oilcloth and even lining the case ! So I am proud of what I made but I think I should have tried this first just with normal fabric. The lining  is a cotton fabric in fuchsia with little white dots. 

No estoy 100% contenta con el resultado pero creo que me metí en un proyecto difícil para ser la primera vez que cosía con este tipo de tela, y encima va forrada por dentro. Le he puesto un forro en fucsia con lunarcitos blancos.

but at least it is presentable, isn't it ?

Perp al menos esta presentable no ?

I used this video as a tutorial for making it, again it is only in Spanish but I think the video itself without the sound is quite self-explanatory. 

Use este video como tutorial para hacerlo, esta en Español y esta muy bien explicado.

The measures she gives are for an iPad, but if anyone wants to make this for a Macbook 13" I can tell you the measures I used. 

Have a happy Wednesday !!

Las medidas que da ella son para una funda de iPad pero si alguna queréis hacerlo para un Macbook de 13" os puedo decir las medidas que yo he usado.

Que tengáis un feliz Miércoles !

  2. It looks fantastic. You made that fast. I love the prints. Was the zipper tricky? I avoid zippers when I can but really want to do some zippered pouches.

  6. Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog.

    Trust me, your laptop cover is more than presentable - it's gorgeous. You are clever. I should get into a terrible pickle if I tried to sew with oilcloth.

    Have a super weekend.
