Jessi Almstead is a girl in Queens with a sewing machine and a dream (as well as an obsession with fabrics and fabric shopping), which many of us can relate to. Jessi creates handmade laptop sleeves that are unique and custom made. The pin stripe sleeve is a classy way to carry your beloved laptop to meetings and work. I really like the gray wool gabardine sleeve that sports a striped bike appliqué. These laptop sleeves are a practical way to add a touch of handmade design to your daily lives. With the ever increasing popularity of laptops and the low availability of mini laptop covers, new solutions to the simple need of protecting them become more relevant. Jessi's laptop sleeves meet that need while remaining charming and unique. And, in some cases reversible!
Room Threads offers a very unique product called R.E.D. Totes. The acronym stands for Reversible Endless Design. What does that mean exactly? It means that there is no need to change the contents of your handbag when you want to change purses. You simply change the cover of your bag to suit your mood. The covers are machine washable and can be used on any of the Room Threads totes. I love this idea because it allows you to create your own bag at any time. There's a variety of beautiful covers to choose from that are made using high-quality fabrics such as Amy Butler, Heather Bailey and more. I think this is an fabulous gift idea for someone who has it all. Also available are interchangeable straps that allow you to adjust the length of you tote bag. I think this handbag maker has thought of it all!
