thank you, sickness...

for giving me enough down time to be crafty. my friend sarah asked me to make her a laptop case a while back, and ive been slowly chipping away at it. she designed it and then sent it my way, and here is the finished product:

front (dont mind the zipper from my hoodie)

back (again, sorry about the zipper on the bottom)

detailing of the birds

i just now finished it. sorry for the shotty pictures, i just laid it out in my lap and took pics with my camera phone. im high-tech. it was really fun making this. i hand stitched everything seen on the outside. i did a ribbon tie on the top, and she wanted a polka-dot handle. she picked out all the fabric, and on the inside is a blue polka-dot pattern.

i think it turned out rather well. thanks to sarah for the design, it is so cute. i love the birds (duh, i ♥ birds). it was the most involved laptop case i have ever made, but i think it was a good challenge for me. it helped me to expand my creativity, and has given me some new ideas for the future :] thanks sarah!!!

Could you please make one that says "durka durka" on the front and "you don't know me" on the back? Thanks. Ha ha ha

You're so creative, even in your sick self. I can't imagine making anything when I'm sick, probably just lay under the blanket, whine and look miserable lol.

I love the design! You should start selling these :) people love customized laptop cases after all :)

I want one that says, "I'll smack you" on one side, and "Die dorris" on the other. Thanks

How about you make one that says: "Josh needs help" on one side, and then on the other "Call Obsessed" with a lysol bottle next to it.

I actually think that would be a nice new item for the etsy shop.
