Hand-Stitched Home & DIY Pendleton Laptop Sleeve
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had some form of Pendleton plaid in my life. It’s a look that’s so warm and classic that its appearance practically announces winter to the world. I so associate their wool fabrics with colder months that it felt like perfect timing to get my copy of Susan Beal’s Hand-Stitched Home, a new DIY book dedicated to home sewing projects that use Pendleton fabrics. With support from Pendleton, Susan shares 30 different ideas for bringing their heritage fabrics into your home, from hand-sewn ottomans and blankets to pillows and scarves.
This project was my favorite from the book. Created by Sarai Mitnick of Colette Patterns, this simple sleeve can be used for carrying a laptop, magazines, books or anything else you can fit comfortably in a soft zippered pouch. You could easily swap in a different fabric or material to suit your style and budget, but the look is straight-forward and functional – exactly what you want from something you’ll be carrying around on a daily basis. Thank you so much to Susan for sharing this with us today. Click here to check out her book and order online. xo, grace
