    I was tired of trying to find a case that I liked and my wife made me one. Just a basic slim case that holds just the laptop. I wanted something lightweight to match the Air since I already had a case that holds my power cord, superdrive, external hard drive and files.

    The case is nice and padded and made from thick canvas. When she has time, she will embroider my initials on the side.

    Funny thing is her sewing machine (which she used for the first time) cost more than the 1.8 SSD air.

    Photos from my iPhone and can take clearer pictures if anyone requests it.

    I agree, that's a nice case. Maybe she could hook up with the AirMail folks. :p

    That's not unusual, esp. if it does embroidery. Some of those machines can go for over $7000 CAN :eek: (how many MBA's is that?)

    Thanks for the compliments! I made sure to share them with her.

    She is now asking if I want different colors.

    a few macrumor orders, a small shop, bigger sewing machine, and some shipping boxes and your wife has got herself a business.

    That's a very nice case - nothing like something custom made to make you feel special. She could probably have a side business making those things, depending on how long it takes her.

    Dude, honestly: tell your wife to get a small business license. Start making those and selling them on eBay or something. Seriously.
