My Granny Square Laptop Sleeve
This is the project that I started on last week, it’s finally finished. I always admire items made with bright colours, but normally stick to my typical muted colour palette. I decided to jump in with a bunch of bright colours and try to make something nice and cheery. I mastered a granny square a couple of weeks ago and though I am working on a blanket, I wanted a quicker project that I could finish much sooner. I decided to make a laptop sleeve for my laptop. So for the details…. I used cotton yarn as I didn’t want the yarn to get fuzzy after being stuffed in and pulled out of a bigger bag. I used fleece to line it so that it would be a little bit more cushioned and look nice and finished on the inside. the bad I do not like the orange in this bag. I think the colours go well together, but something about the orange colour and floral pattern screams 70’s and shag carpet. Maybe it’s just me, but this is what I think now when I look at this sleeve. I also do not care for the border around the front, but quite frankly it wasn’t wide enough to cover the top of the computer, and since I basically was winging it and really had no clue as to what I was doing, there we go. the good I love that I was able to crochet something useful. I love the idea of the granny squares, especially if I had colours that looked good. I’m thrilled with the actual construction, like I said, I had no idea what I was doing and just kind of figured things out as I went along. I’m a little disappointed that after all of that work, I don’t really care for it, but I am very excited that I can tweak what I didn’t like and start from scratch and hopefully produce one that I love. I’m a little stumped on the colour choice though, as it is fairly obvious that my bright colour palette skills are seriously lacking. I guess like with anything, practice makes perfect and hopefully my eye will get better as far as these new colours go. Any suggestions? I was thinking possibly the same blue, red, and adding white instead of the orange.
