Materials list for the Laptop Cover


Allow extra yardage for matching or centering a design on your fabric.

NOTE: First measure your laptop's width, length and height. If your laptop is larger than the finished size, you will need to add 1/8 yard to each of the fabrics and interfacings for every 1” to 1 1/2” added to the finished size length. (There is plenty of fabric for the width.)

  •   1 1/8 yard of 44” wide light to mid-weight fabric for the Exterior
  •   1 1/8 yard of 44” wide light to mid-weight fabric for the Lining
  •   3/4 yard of 22” wide single-sided fusible Peltex® by Pellon® or other similar extra heavy stabilizer
  •   3/8 yard of 44” wide fusible fleece (we use fusible Thermolam Plus by Pellon®)
  •   1 1/2 yards of 60” wide 10 oz. cotton canvas or Natural Duck Cloth for interfacing (We use canvas made by Thompson Manufacturing. You can substitute with Natural Duck Cloth manufactured by Schott International, Inc.)

  •   1 spool of a coordinating all-purpose thread (we use Coats Dual Duty Plus®)
