A belt found from a trift store ended up around woolen laptop sleeve. The belt happened to be exactly the right length.
I ripped most of the original edge stitches out of the belt before attaching it on the sleeve using top stitches of Husqvarna Viking 2000 Model 6030. I sewed slowly so the needle would have went through the old holes – did not quite manage doing so. I left both ends of the belt open, so the sleeve can be closed using the belt mechanism as usually.
Woolen fabric is so thick and porous that the fusible stabilizer will not stick on it. I decided to attach the stabilizer by top stitching by the pattern on the fabric. I used three-step straight stitch and yellow thread.
I used the same instructions than earlier but I used measurements of 13″ MacBook Air. I like this so much that I am not going to give this to my friend but keep this for myself. Hmmmm – then I’d only need a new laptop…
