Repurposed UFO

Before we head off on our trip I decided I needed to make a laptop sleeve to protect my laptop from knocks and bumps. 
Checking through the box of UFOs and orphan blocks I found this piece . I have had it floating around for some years now, with the intention of using it for a cushion cover..  It was the perfect size for the laptop, so it became repurposed.

I “loosely” followed this tutorial,  added a pocket to the back, and used a different method to insert the zip.

To finish off I took another UFO piece – I had quilted this with the intention of making a candle mat or mug rug from it, but hadnt finished it off.  I cut it down, finished off the edges, added non slip to the back and made it into a small and light mouse pad.
