Root Beer Laptop Sleeve - Free Pattern

Happy Monday everyone! This week's yarn review will be a little delayed, because I'm bringing you a pattern instead! I do all my posting from a little 13" Macbook. With two little tots running around my house, the aluminum body of my laptop gets so many fingerprints and smudges! So, I designed a simple sleeve to keep it in when it's not in use. The pattern is easily adjusted for laptops of different sizes and even for tablets, too! Enjoy!

You can purchase a downloadable version on Ravelry here: Ravelry Link
Remember to add your projects; I love seeing them!

I'm also running a SALE right now! Buy one get one free on ALL patterns, no code needed! Expires May 31 at 11:59pm Central Time.

Root Beer Laptop Sleeve

- H (5mm) Hook
- 1 ball Premier Sweet Roll yarn (shown in “Root Beer”) or similar. You will use nearly the whole ball.
- Button (Pattern uses a 1.5” button, but this can be adjusted easily)

- Bag is worked in joined rounds. Flap is worked in turned rows.
- Join each round with a slip stitch to the first stitch of the round.

Petite Pet Pouch

Good day, everyone! Something very exciting has happened in our family recently. A tiny sick kitten showed up on our doorstep last month! Her eyes were matted shut and she was all skin and bones. My husband took her to the vet and we found out she had a respiratory infection and weighed only .75 pounds!  So... We adopted her! Her name is Dinah and she's doing much better. She's now 12 weeks old but her growth has been stunted. She's still less than 2 pounds!
It was important in the beginning to keep her warm, so I whipped up this little kitty cave to help her feel safe and cozy. You can make your own in just 30 minutes! Add it to your favorites on Ravlery here: Here's the free pattern:
