My Yeti

I finished my Yeti! He is a laptop case!

It turns out I am bad at math and can't do basic addition to insure my laptop will fit. I thought I was giving it an extra two inches around, but my laptop has a tough time squeezing in. Maybe my math was fine and I just didn't take into account the added bulk of the batting? Anyway, my laptop fits very snugly inside Mr. Yeti and It is a very good thing I don't need to get my laptop in and out of the case very often.

Like I said before, everything this yeti is made out of stuff I already had. The furry fabric was leftover from one of Arlo's Halloween costumes and a matching hood I made. I picked out the two button pupils from my button stash. The mouth, teeth, claws, and eyes are felt scraps. I had plenty of batting to make sure he is extra protective. He is lined with red cotton fabric and zips closed with a cream colored zipper, both of which I had on hand.

So far I am doing good with my resolution to use what I have instead of buying more; I hope I don't crack soon. I want to buy some paint for an upcoming project I have planned and I have to keep telling myself, "NO! NO! NO!"

Update: I closed comments because I was getting way too much spam!
