Abandoned Fabric

macbook pro case
I bought some fabric from a thrift store a little while ago. I absolutely love all the strange fabrics you can find there. I haven't used my sewing machine much since I bought it, and my Macbook Pro has been in dire need of a laptop case, so I made one! View another photo here. What do you think?

We live in a small townhouse, so my room is pretty tiny and I took out my closet doors to prevent myself from death by claustrophobia. I keep some storage boxes in my closet shelf, and I decided to make a little curtain to hide them. I absolutely love it! Here are before & after pics:


Is it obvious yet that I love stripes?

I love the case and the curtain.
I want to learn to make things like that! :)

Also, the colour in your room is lovely.

I love those stripes so much. Every time I see them in your blogs, I am jealous of your room :P But I actually don't mind the look of the boxes in the open, since they're nice boxes. Looks great either way though.

P.S. You neeeeeeed to make more of those cases and sell them in your etsy shop. They're wonderful.

great curtains, but are those all of your clothes?
if so, you are taking minimalism to a whole new level.

Thanks!

Haha, no those are not all of my clothes! I have them in my dresser and in that wardrobe. I have too many clothes that I don't wear.

Gahh I love that case!! I will commission you to make me one of course only if you are willing. I love the finds at thrift shops. I found my favorite pair of boots at a thrift shop for four dollars. Love your posts as always. And, stripes are COOL!

Love the laptop case. My mabcook is forever getting scratched due to lack of coverage. I might have to follow in your footsteps.
The thrift store is one of my most favorite places to find fabrics!

I love that the stripes in your bedroom match the stripes on your blog. Too cute!
