Does anyone have a pattern for making a case/cover. My sister can sew pretty well and was wondering if anyone had a link to a site where it had a walkthrough or at least something that would make it easier for her.... I am sure she can eyeball it though.

ps. Post number 1 for me... Just ordered my Ibook, so I am excited to recieve it.

12" Apple iBook Computer is 11.2" X 9.1" X 1.35"
14" Apple iBook Computer is 12.7" X 12.2" X 1.35"

I could only find the dimensions, which will make it easier to make a template. That would be neat to see a home made case.

Good luck on the project. :mac:

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Thanks for the info... I am not the first though.. check ebay, there are people selling ones on there, but I think 20bucks for some fabric and a bit of filler is pricey; plus doing it myself would mean I can get any design I want.
