My New Laptop Bag – Finished!
Last week, I blogged about my progress on my new laptop bag.
The front flap snaps closed with a magnetic snap. The strap has a slider on it so that I can shorten or lengthen the strap as needed.
This pocket will be so handy during travel for storing important items that need to be accessed easily, such as airline tickets, ID and a small wallet.
The mouse and power cord stay in place in the pockets.
The fabrics used to make this bag are from my growing stash of hand dyed experiments. I had enough of the gray fabric for the entire exterior, but all of the other parts were made from random pieces that were big enough for the part I was working on at the time. I even had to “build” enough fabric for the interior side pockets by stitching some smaller pieces together.
This pattern went together easy enough since I have made bags before and pretty much understood what I was doing.
As the bag was closer to being finished, the bulk was a challenge to handle, but in the end, it turned out just as I hoped it would.
I did finish it in time to tote my computer to our girls sewing day and show it off.
