Hello! Welcome readers! Was busy doing more and more sewing projects now! Feel so tempted everyday to do up one projects and here it goes! I’ve made a laptop case this time round with a zipper ones. Previously I did a envelope one and I quite like it. Especially its comfy to hold.
There are many fabric type to do sewing, This time I used a quilt fabric. Which is better for doing big project like laptop case or bags etc. Because needs something that can hold your laptop well so that it wont spoil your laptop when you bring out.
I found out there is also nice quilt fabric which I just realise. Quilt Fabric looks something like this. They are more on doing Patchwork crafts, Comes with a batting with it so it looks more thick.
I feel this is even better, but there are only few designs out there. So you can just hunt for it in your local fabrics store.
I goanna show you how I sew a laptop case with zip.
It’s very similar to the zip pouch.
Measure your laptop, I’m cutting out one whole piece of fabric and fold to half so that the bottom is seal leave with the side opening. (The Size of the case is depends on the measurement of your laptop)
You can align your zipper first to the fabric and see how you want your zip to be. I align my zip until the side, for both side one side shorter one longer so it can hold the laptop.
Pin it in place to see the overall picture.
Once you done with the alignment, Turn the fabric to the wrong side. Start sewing the sides with a zipper foot all the way to the other side.
How do i close the zipper end:
I sew it across at the end. Do a backstitch 1-2 times.
Turn it back right side out, it will look like this.
And try it on your laptop!
TADAH! You’re done!
Is easy right ? The zipper should be quite challenging to sew but just have to make sure your alignment is correct that should be fine!
For the zipper i get those in one Yards, comes with zipper puller. Some store have to buy seperately, if you are not sure how long you want the zipper, is good to buy in yards, so that you can measure and cut off the excess. They do have a few designs, like with pendants, or those just normal ones.
What i like about the zipper pullers is i can choose the one with nice ring on it, like the one i using for this project i choose a Zipper Ring which is super cute. You can hunt for nice pendants on it. Or if you know the measurement of the zipper, feel free to get those ready ones 12″inches long or even longer.
So hope this tutorial helps you and stay tune for my video tutorial ! will update real soon!
