my laptop is a beast. there i said it. it's huge. it's heavy and i've had it for 3 years and never had a case.
it's always bothered me that when i take my 17" laptop out of the house it's not in something fun and stylish. instead it's been in a ugly one i borrow from the hubs occasionally. my laptop has what we lovingly refer to as the hump. it's powerful but is not a mac. it's a hp that has done me well considering what i put it through each day. it never ever fits traditional laptop cases very well. the hump always gets in the way. but she deserves something sassy to wear when i take it out as a reward for it's loyalty. she's getting old ya know....shhhh..don't tell her i said that though.
when the fabulous company caseable contacted me about there laptop cases i literally squealed with delight! customizable cases and sleeves for all your electronics? i'm in!
you can make a case or sleeve for anything from laptops (yesss!), ipad's, kindles and more! and the selections! ahhhhmazing. honestly. i went in fully prepared to make my own laptop case from scratch. i was all ready with a design worked out but then i became smitten with all the designer templates available in their gallery! yes - you can buy cases/sleeves done by artists and even customize those too! honestly - there was a lot of fun and exciting designs. i had a great time. so much fun it actually took me a while to pick one! you'd think i was purchasing a car or something it took me so long to decide. i know this post isn't about sewing or knitting but dudes - this was fun!
then i got to customize. you know the part where you get to add a bit of your personality & flair to your case. you know...the fun part :)
i went with this rockin geometric design for my laptop case by artist bianca green (luv her stuff btw). i kept going back to it over and over again and in the end it won out. once you've chosen your design on caseable you can still customize it. i changed up the zipper & thread and the side piece that is over the start/end of the zipper too. i went from a dark grey to a bright, bold in your face yellow.
you know me and color - i wanted the zipper to have some zip!
you can also change up other things like add fun text/logos or straps etc to really personalize your choice using an easy platform. of course if you went the total custom route you would design the entire thing. honestly - it was a cool project to undertake. just think of the fun you could have! i only wish i had a cool cell phone so i could do one up for that too.
