Mackie Sleeve


I really wanted a fun and stylish laptop sleeve that was easy to get the laptop in and out of for my new Macbook. I wanted it to feel unisex so my partner wouldn't feel silly when borrowing my laptop. And the Mackie Sleeve was born!

It's both quick and fun to make and it contains instructions to adjust it to fit almost any laptop size! And you can play around with this design endlessly!

It's the perfect gift for the guy or gal in your life that has everything already. Who doesn't want a cool laptop sleeve, maybe with a fabric with his or hers favourite character peeking out of the zipper? ;)


No previous skills necessary, the pattern contains step by step instructions with a color photo for each step, so it should be easy and fun to follow and make even for a beginner.

The size of your laptop.

1 Fat quarter (18x22 inches) quilting cotton lining fabric (if you have a laptop larger than a MacBook, you might need more).

4x8" Scrap of faux leather (or any other fabric for the corner covers, if using a fraying fabric, double the fabric requirement).
4x7" Scrap of "peek a boo" fabric visible in the zipper.
