Laptop Cozy – Pretty Ruffles

What you need

3. Also cut out 2 pieces of batting that size.

4. Layer 1 piece of batting between 2 of your main fabric pieces, Pin them together, and then quilt it by sewing them together. For my quilting, I just stitched straight lines along the length of the pieces.

Repeat with your other 2 pieces of fabric and your batting.

5. Time for the ruffles: Cut out 6 3” wide strips of fabric, The length depends on how much ruffle you want, but I recommend at least 25” long. You can do these from all of the same fabric, or 3 different fabrics like I did.

6. Hem the side edges of all your ruffles.
