My new MacBook was in need of a pretty and protective case. I found these adorable patterns over at the Ann Kelle blog. I used the same pattern for the MacBook cover, just scaled it up to fit the larger dimensions. Since I had extra material left over, I figured I would make one for my iPad as well. The mirrored pattern on the two different covers was unintentional, but I like that they’re slightly different.
As the pattern mentions, these are just covers, not cases—meaning, they’re really thin. I padded the inside a bit by adding a couple layers of felt. It still wouldn’t protect either gadget in the case of a fall, but I feel a bit more comfortable carrying them around now that there is a little cushion.
