Does it ever feel like you can't find what you're looking for? We've been on the hunt for a laptop sleeve to fit our 13" MacBook Pro—something light and thin that's just enough to protect against scratches and tiny bumps (and hopefully something gray). But until we find the perfect sleeve, we might just try this cheap DIY project and make a sleeve out of shelf liners.

Obviously this isn't going to be the best case available to you. But it's probably the best case available to you for just a buck.

To get started, just head down to the dollar store for a small roll of that grippy, rubbery shelf and drawer liner. Grab whatever color strikes your fancy and sharpen your sewing skills.

Then head over to Instructables where schoochmaroo can show you how to create a template out of paper, add velcro and sew the sleeve shut.

In the end, you'll have a useful accessory that was easy to make with a cheap price tag. Isn't that what DIY projects are all about?
