3.  Zippered Laptop Sleeve {Tutorial} ~ Since this tutorial is measurement based, you could adapt it to fit an iPad or other electronic gadget, too.  I love that it has a zipper and not just a fold-over pouch.  That fabulous fabric doesn’t hurt either.

Laptop Cover

6.  Laptop/Kindle/iPad Sleeve Tutorial – This pattern can be made for any size laptop, Kindle, or iPad by adjusting the measurements accordingly.  Lindsay also gives suggestions for making a more “manly” if you are giving it to a guy.
