Notebook computers have become slim enough to slip nicely into an everyday bag. Still, they need protection against bangs and scrapes. Neoprene makes a cushioned, water-resistant wrap. Make a sleek case for your laptop with the instructions below.


  1. Measure your laptop, and cut the material using the guide below.

  2. Sew Velcro onto the long flaps. Do the same for the short flaps, leaving a 1-inch gap in the center of each band to avoid a bulge where Velcro crosses. Because neoprene does not fray, no hemming is required.
