My Sewing Mistake

I made a really cute little padded sleeve for my laptop yesterday using Simplicity 3889 View B yesterday. The pattern went together well but in the end it was too small for my laptop. I was very disappointed.
This is a very easy pattern to alter and I had altered height of the pattern but the sizing indicated that the length of my laptop was ok. Pattern size states 10"h x 14"l. My laptop is 11"h x 14"l. I added 1 1/4" to the height but upon completion the sleeve was 13 1/2". I think it was the foam that I used but I can't be sure because I'm not going to make another one. However, I did end up with a very cute bag that my husband's laptop will fit in.
I'm off to purchase a bag of some sort to carry my laptop in.
