So the lighter one is mine and the other is my husbands. I made mine first, hence it's all a bit wobbly as I didn't have the thing worked out yet. My only issue with this pattern was that the instructions for cutting the flap were incorrect - they have a formula for cutting (which why I didn't realise they were wrong until a bit later in the process) along the lines of Width by Height + 1 inch, that sort of thing. Anyway, for the flap; it says height when it means width - which in the case of mine was an error which was just about manageable, but things are a bit wibbly...
The second time I made this (the stripey one), I had the measurements right and it worked like a dream. My husband was pretty pleased and it took my less then an hour to make as I had the thing down pat. I really like this pattern and it was quick and easy with a nice finish.
My only other issue (which I know was my issue and not an issue of the pattern) was that my husbands version is still pretty tight to slide the touchpad in and out of. I suspect that is because the first one was made from a flannel pillow case which would naturally have a lot more give than the woven stripey fabric.
Anyway, I like the pattern heaps and would recommend it. If you are looking for a quickie chrissie present for a techie (or actually anyone with a similar tablet or laptop) then you still have time :)
