T-shirt laptop sleeve

Following on the success of my T-shirt messenger bag, I used two more shirts to make a padded sleeve for my son's laptop. Each side is a sandwich of T-shirt fabric, fusible fleece interfacing (it's a bit thicker than the usual type) and a cotton-twill lining. He didn't want a zipper, so I didn't use one, but it would not have been too hard to insert one before the side panels were joined. Skills needed: careful measuring and cutting, iron-on interfacing, machine sewing. Total time: about half an hour.
