27 inch iMac Computer Cozy
What you'll need:
Fabric of your choice at least 58 inches long and 20 inches wide
An hour or two
If your fabric is directional, keep that in mind when you're choosing your top (I didn't and it was too late to turn back). Fold the fabric in half, right sides together with the fold on the left and the raw edges on the right. At the top right edge mark with a pen or pin 27.75 inches from the left folded edge. At the bottom right edge mark 28.75 inches from the left folded edge. Take a straight edge to cut a line from the top measurement to the bottom measurement. Pin 1/4 inch around the top and right side parallel to the edge. Dry fit the cozy on the computer, keeping the fabric inside out so the pins DO NOT come in contact with the computer. Adjust fit as needed. Sew 1/4 inch seam around top and side. Trim the top corners to reduce bulk when turned right side out. Press seams out. Pin and press bottom under 1/2 inch. Sew 1/4 inch seam around bottom. Turn inside out and slip over computer. Sit back and enjoy.
Keep an eye out for my Cozy 2.0. I've got some great ideas to improve the cozy from the LubHub and they may make their way to my etsy shop. Of course, I'll post it here first.
Please comment below if you have any questions or if you've made the cozy and how it turned out!
