crochet laptop case

private project 2010

Preparing for my move to London, I required a case for my laptop and external harddrive. Having crocheted smaller cases for cell phones using threads, I now saw the opportunity to experiment with alternate materials to create a thicker case that would keep them safe while matching my style. After considering differerent textiles, I decided to use jersey for its thick yet soft texture. Transforming the jersey into wide strips to be crocheted, I realized this could be a way to reuse old clothes, or any flat material, as it is easy to adjust the width of the strips depending on the materials thickness. I use the cases daily and both my laptop and harddrive are still in one piece…
