Of course we can't be gone for 4 days without taking some laptops along with us. Plus, my daughter will have been without any internet for over 10 weeks and I'm sure she will want to do a bit of surfing and catching up with her friends.
I figure it might be a good idea to make something to protect our laptops while we are flying. I found a fun pattern over at Amy a la mode to use on my first ever laptop sleeve.

I found this fabric at a thrift store awhile ago. It is a whole cloth all over design.

I like fabric that does all the hard work for me.
I also used the same fabric for the lining. Makes it easier that way. The pattern calls for the lining to be quilted but I think I prefer for the outside fabric to have the quilting. I like the quilted crinkly look the quilting gives the bag.
Now I need to make two more and I can check laptop sleeves off my travel list. I think I might just wing the next one. Once we get back home we probably won't use these sleeves very often so I don't mind winging one or two now that I can wrap my mind around the basics.
