I recently made a new friend and I am so glad I met her. Take a look:
I have been saving for quite a while for her. Too long. It seemed like every time I thought I was close to getting her I need to fix something in the house or on the car. Then of course there were all the stupid things I bought that probably added up to way more than she cost because I thought I needed them - you know, like a new pair of shoes, that things on sale at Target that I can't even remember anymore (seriously, Target is so bad for me - I can't leave without spending $50+), the lunches I bought out because I was too lazy to take less than five minutes to pack it. Anyway, I finally got it together and I am so happy.
And unlike when I bought my first generation iPhone, I didn't buy her two months before the new model came out. I waited and now I have a super shiny white MacBook that is super fast and has close to twice as much story as her slightly older model sister. She may be the least expensive model in the lineup, but she is everything I wanted.
And what does this crafter do right after getting a new toy? She searches the net for a great tutorial so they can make her a cover to keep her safe. I found a great tutorial on Sew Mama Sew by Elizabeth from Oh, Fransson. I pretty much followed the tutorial exactly - it was super easy. I used some light pink fleece instead of flannel simply since I didn't have any coordinating flannel in my stash and I set out to complete the project without purchasing anything. One thing I would mention to anyone who works with velcro - be careful with the iron. Luckily I only got it a little bit, but I did slightly melt some of the velcro, oops.
I love how the case turned out. It fits snuggly and allows me to tote my MacBook in any bag instead of having to lug around a big laptop bag.
Oh, I forgot to introduce my MacBook's friend Magic. She is just as tiny and shiny but she doesn't have her own cover... yet.
I need to stop calling her MacBook, maybe I should name her. I brainstormed some names (most were different ways to say white) but didn't come up with anything quite right. Do you have any ideas?
