Working on a custom order



A couple weeks ago, an Etsy friend asked me about making a laptop case for her. I'd never done one before, so I'm excited to take on the challenge. My sewing skills aren't up to the task, so it's up to my trusty knitting needles.

At first, I'd wanted to make it felted, but then I realized that wool would present a problem with static electricity. Not a good thing for electronic equipment! So, I looked up a dense, sturdy stitch, and am proceeding to test out a prototype in a linen stitch. It's looking very promising so far, I must say.
