A couple months after I got my new MacBook, I got a small backpack, in which I wanted to carry it in (among other things). It didn’t have a dedicated slot for a laptop. I also had the notion to carry the MacBook in other bags.
I thought a laptop sleeve would be idea. I started looking. What I found was most sleeves opened on the long edge of the device. I was looking for one that opened on the short edge, so I could pull the laptop out of a backpack while leaving the sleeve in.
Is this an excessively specific use case? Perhaps.
I mentioned this to my daughter. After over fifty days in quarantine, she made me a bespoke sleeve:
It looks good, and fits in my bag just like I planned!
I’m quite pleased with it–it will protect my MacBook in a convenient way! I’m also quite proud of my talented daughter.
