It was hours in the making, but I found that my time spent on this side-project was really less about mine, and more about theirs; The Instructables community, that I'd be diving head first into.
Every day there are dozens of newly added, beautifully illustrated and orated tutorials submitted on Instructables.com that blow me away. Despite my habitual DIY, step-by-step posts via Imgur and Reddit, for some reason I had never thought to get involved in the Autodesk-affiliated company. But thanks to a friendly tip about their upcoming leather contest, I figured, why not? Let's see what I've got compared to the pros of the tutorial world, and maybe inspire the less-experienced to have a go at the hobby.
About a week after my Custom Laptop Sleeve submission, these were the results!
I really didn't know what to expect, but I do find that if I simply continue to put in my best efforts, things just work out :)
Anyway, that's all for now. Just thought I'd share. Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!
