These Clever Laptop and iPad sleeves are ready for a Big production run, right here in the USA!

Thanks so much for visiting my Kickstarter project!

It looks just like an interoffice envelope, but it's actually a laptop sleeve! 

The first batch of this laptop sleeve was created in 2008, with my own two hands and sewing machine.  Over the past few years, I've sold the sleeves at street fairs, through my website, and wholesale to a few stores.  Unwavering interest from customers and store owners confirms there is still so much potential for these sleeves.  So...  after years of laboriously creating small batches of sleeves that can't meet the demand,  I'm ready for a large scale production run!I'll finally be able to reach all the customers and stores I've been missing out on, and Wonder Threads will have a chance to GROW!

You can help me make it happen!  After an exhaustive search for the right people to make my products, the fabric, printing, and sewing vendors are all in place, and all right here in the USA.  The funds raised by this Kickstarter campaign will help cover the production costs of creating a large quantity of sleeves in two styles, and several sizes.

Sizes include:

                                  Laptop

Styles include:

Interoffice Envelope Laptop Sleeve

Materials:

Outer fabric=  Screen printed water repellent microfiber

Lining= soft fleece

Velcro makes a secure closure, while red tabs & string give the full effect.

Composition Notebook iPad Sleeve

I will be expanding on the black and white notebook with bright (maybe even neon!) colors.  Have any fave colors you'd love to see?  Send me a suggestion in the comments section.

Materials:

Outer fabric=  Screen printed water repellent microfiber

Lining= soft fleece

Velcro= secure closure

Mr. Turtle Block Print on Paper

Measuring 8"x10", this dapper little turtle print can be framed or hung as is.  He is hand printed on heavyweight paper (paper colors will vary--stay tuned for updates!)  His mustache and hat are cut from paper and stitched in place.

Appliqued United States Map Wall Hanging

Each state is individually cut from a woven cotton fabric and sewn to a woven cotton fabric 'background', which is then stretched and ready to be hung.  It's essentially a stretched canvas, measuring 22" L x 15" W x 7/8" H.   Rainbow not your thing?  Stay tuned for updates showing additional color combos.

Appliqued World Map Wall Hanging

Each continent is individually cut from a woven cotton fabric and sewn to a woven cotton fabric 'background', which is then stretched and ready to be hung.  It's essentially a stretched canvas, measuring 22" L x 15" W x 7/8" H.    Stay tuned for updates showing additional color combos.

How Funding works:

If you decide to make a pledge (thank you so much!), your credit card will be charged when my project reaches its funding deadline date (March 5th, 2012), but only if my project is fully funded.  It's an all or nothing situation-- if my project is not fully funded, your credit card is not charged, and I do not receive any $. 

Have questions?  There is a full FAQ section if you click Help at the very top of the page.  Also, feel free to contact me with any questions.  Here is something you might be wondering:

  • How do I pledge?

To pledge to my project, just click the green “Back This Project” button on the right side of the page. You will be asked to enter your pledge amount and select a reward. From there, you will go through the Amazon checkout process. Note that you must finish the Amazon checkout process for your pledge to be recorded.  **Kickstarter only supports credit card payments through Amazon Payments.  No cash or checks.

Remember, there are rewards for every pledge!  I expect to ship sleeves at the end of May 2012. 

The more people I reach, the better chance I have of being funded.  So please help me spread the word!

Thank you, thank you so much for your support!!!

FAQ

  • If my project happens to be over funded, I MIGHT be able to add this size. If not, I will definitely add the 11" size to my 2nd big production run.

    Last updated:
  • 10.1" Android Tablets seem to be quite popular. A specific sleeve for these products is something for me to consider in the future. For now, if I am able to make the 11" sleeve, it will be the closest fitting sleeve for a 10.1" Android Tablet.

    Last updated:
  • The iPad sleeve is a snug fit, measuring just slightly larger than the iPad itself.

    iPad= 9.5" x 7.3" x 0.34"
    Sleeve= 9.75" x 7.6 x 0.5"

    Last updated:
  • I will be contacting you after my project's deadline to request your reward choices (iPad style, laptop sleeve size, map details, etc.), and your shipping address.

  • Not at this time, but I would love to add these sleeves to my collection in the future.
