Free Laptop Sleeve C2C Pattern

I am a stay at home mom. We (Me, 4 year old and 2 year old) are on the go all the time trying to get some alone time.... I mean keep them busy with activities *Wink Wink*. You know, so they can learn and play. I have been taking my laptop with me everywhere and it has been getting hit A LOT! So I decided it's time to take action and do something about it. This is what I came up with and I LOVE IT!

It is a really cool funky design for a laptop sleeve. I used Bernat Blanket yarn because it is chunky and would form a thick soft cushion to protect my laptop for all these bangs. Also, because I have a lot of Bernat Blanket yarn left over from my last blanket.

 

Making the Sleeve

I decided to use the Corner to Corner (C2C) technique as it is fast and easy to create that funky design I wanted in. 

Corner to corner (C2C) is a crochet technique in which you crochet diagonally from one corner to the other. You can make square or rectangular blankets. Each pixel (little square) is represented by Chain 3 and 3 Double Crochets (DC).  Need help with C2C, check out my C2C tips and tricks 

The size of each pixel depends on the thickness of yarn you use. I had to test a little to find out how big this design should be to fit my 13 inch laptop perfectly.

The SleeveDesign

As you can see from the design above, I crocheted one long rectangle. I then folded that rectangle to create the sleeve. Since I wanted to make sure the whole laptop is protected from the sides, the flap had to be as small as possible.  I left 3 pixels for the flap and single crocheted the sides together.

Also, this project would not be complete without some cute buttons. So, I went into my stash and found my adorable owl buttons. I sewed them on the second pixel of the front side. 

 

 

Oh, the Charger!!

On my first day using the sleeve I realized there was no space for my laptop charger and earphones. That was very important for me since my laptop battery is not what it used to be. 

The solution was easy though. I decided to solve this with a little pocket on the front of the sleeve. 

The Pocket Design

It was just a small 4x4 square that had a similar design to the sleeve. Finally, I sewed it on the bottom right corner of the sleeve.

 

 

Let me know what you think. Do you think your laptop or the laptop of someone you know needs this like mine did?

 

 

Here is the good stuff 

For me each pixel was about 2.5 cm (0.98 Inches). The sleeve turned out to have a length of 70.104 cm (27.6 Inches) and width of 22.606 cm (8.9 Inches). The Charger Pocket is 10 x 10 cm (3.9 x 3.9 inches). 

So here is the recipe:

  • 6 Super Bulky yarn colours
  • 6.5 mm K crochet hook
  • Cute Buttons
