Tired of always sporting that briefcase-look when you’re carrying around your laptop? Wish your technological accessories could match your unique sense of style? 

Ars Technica is showing us how to flex our creative muscles by posting a comprehensive DIY laptop blanket guide. With step-by-step instructions, including a link to a Youtube sewing tutorial, the site shows you how to turn whatever fabric you have lying around into a stylish and personalized laptop blanket for your Mac or PC. 

The laptop blanket won’t save your laptop from falls, but it will protect against scratching. Plus, anything that adds a little colour to our home or office space is always nice. 

Major bonus is that you get to choose your own design, and feel the warm-fuzzies that go along with any DIY project. This DIY laptop blanket looks like a great rainy day recession-friendly project!
