A laptop cover out of old jeans

I simply love classic denim with its multitudes of shades of blue. That’s why when the life of a pair of jeans comes to an end I never throw them away but stash away for later when the inspiration hits me.

Denim is a perfect choice of fabric for many things as it is strong, durable and pretty. For the laptop cover I have used several different shades of denim to create interesting patchwork like effect and incorporated back pockets. The cover is lined with quite thick faux fur which serves as protective padding.

For closing I have used two snap fasteners.
