Here's where I answer my own question: I'm sure it's much harder than it seems. This is one particular blog post that has given me the motivation to maybe try it. The tricky thing seems to be making it actually fit and flatter your body. I'll keep you posted if I really decide to attempt it.
On another sewing note, I did find this tutorial and made one of these as a Father's Day gift for Jeff. I think the fusible fleece gives it just the right amount of padding without being bulky and also I love the soft flannel lining. I want to make one for my laptop now too.
It's definitely an easy, 1-2 hour project if your laptop needs some protecting.

(Funny story about this day. I was having some pretty painful contractions during this whole planting session. They didn't actually turn into real labor, but you can see in this picture I must have been in the middle of one)

Her best pics are actually not of food, but I'm always so hungry lately (thank you nursing) that these are the ones I chose. She has a great collection that can be viewed here.

The other night we tried the family draw. It turned out to be a lot of fun, and hopefully it is something we can do regularly. So even if I'm not convinced that my ladybug/caterpillar/tree isn't the best I've ever seen, I'm going to keep at it and hopefully my boys will do the same.

For the past two weeks, I have thought over and over of how much better I feel after eating certain foods that made me sick for weeks and weeks, how happy I am to be able to take a really deep breath, to roll over comfortably in bed, and not to have to visit the toilet 18 times a day. For some reason my messy house doesn't overwhelm me to tears like it did my entire pregnancy--I can only attribute this to actually being able to bend over comfortably to pick up clutter and put it away.
Even the regular labor and delivery recovery-related pains and discomfort, as well as the early pain of nursing that have been around since Henry arrived AND the exhaustion of waking up every 2-3 hours in the night haven't bothered me like the whole 9 months of pregnancy bothered me. Go figure.
I'm mostly writing this for all my pregnant friends (and there are many!) out there who are in every stage of gestation, feeling all levels of nausea, heartburn, insomnia, backaches, and anxiety. All I can say is hang on, and hopefully PPE is on its way to you very soon.
