Star Trek Science Officer Laptop Sleeve DIY

My project for the day is a Star Trek Uniform Laptop Sleeve! I have a sturdy case that I use for my laptop if I'm going on a trip but if I'm just running up to the library with it or something I just use a sleeve. However I was getting tired of my last laptop sleeve so it was definitely time for a new one. and I love this one! :)

 Supplies: 1/2 yard of blue felt, 1/4 yard of black felt, 1 sheet of grey felt, Black thread, sewing machine

1. Measure your laptop, add about 2" to each measurement and cut 4 sheets of your blue felt to the new measurement. For example my laptop is 15"x11" so I cut my felt 17"x13".
Cut a black V shape from black felt the width of your blue felt and about 3" tall. Also cut out a 2" communicator from grey felt.
2. Stitch down your small pieces onto one of your blue felt rectangles.
3. Separate your 4 blue rectangles into pairs of 2, placing them right sides together. Stitch along on of the shorter sides and flip right side out so the one end has a finished edge.
4. Stitch along the finished edge. This is just stitching the two pieces together so that they stay flat and don't move around.
5. Place your 2 pieces right sides together and stitch down the sides and bottoms leaving the top open.
6. Flip right side out.
If you want it a bit thicker you could add a layer of batting in between the layers of felt but I think with 2 pieces of felt on each side it's enough padding for my old laptop. Unless it was a redshirt. then it would need all the extra padding available!

So, have you Star Trek Into Darkness yet? Taylor and I went to see it last night and it was AMAZING! I absolutely loved it, loved every second of it!

Now I want to do even more geeky things, and put Star Trek themes on all the crafts! haha.

  5. I am so excited to have found this! My dad is a HUGE Star Trek fan and he's the kind of guy that's super hard to figure out something for Christmas or his birthday. I've been fretting over what to make or get for him when I saw this and thought it was perfect! Thanks!!!

  6. This is such a fun pattern! I modified it to be Picard's uniform (mainly because I have more Spock related stuff than Picard.)
    Thank you!
