|Here is my laptop.|
Look for signs of my Assistant!
|Here is the chosen felted sweater.|
100% Lambswool--very soft.
|The striped pattern is unusual. I love the colors.|
|I turned the sweater inside out because I like that better.|
So soft...you know me!
Assistant's tail again.
|I cut the ribbing off the waist of the sweater, and made a cut across just under the bottom of where the sleeve is seamed to the body of the sweater.|
This shows the piece that I used.
|After machine stitching the long edge where the waist ribbing was, I folded the entire section in half again. I then hand stitched the side seams and the bottom together. This is now 4 layers thick, so the machine wouldn't have liked that!|
|Here is the bottom seam. A little rough, but I like the look of it.|
The side seam stitches can't be seen.
|The open (top) end of the sleeve with my laptop trying it on for size.|
It fits very nicely, proving that my intuition worked in this case :-].
|I folded back the sections so you can see the extra places to put things.|
|Paper, for example!|
|So there are 2 flat sections for paper and one middle section for the laptop.|
