Laptop Bag Pictures

Here's one I prepared earlier...You can see a bit of bias tape action around the edges of the flap, and on the internal divider pocket, too!!
Can you see how I've managed to complicate/prolong the instuction-writing process...?
I'm also experimenting with different interfacings and stabilisers to get it JUST RIGHT to carry a computer safely and snugly.

Good things come to those who wait.... and this is going to be VERY GOOD. But you're going to have to wait a little bit longer.... sorry (insert apologetic, kind-of wincing smile here).

I love the bag! It looks a bit out of my sewing league, but I'd still like to make one. My favorite part is the checkered lining and all the little pockets. AND (I guess I don't really have a favorite part), that green corduroy is awesome.

Very sharp! The one I made for myself is a lot bigger and useful for airline travel, and right now I'm making a back pack style one for my daughter. But yours looks very professional and something you could take to the office. Although I suppose some women would have to tone it down depending on how 'stuffy' their workplace is! The women I work with love the stuff I make and I know one in particular who will probably want one of yours! I guess I'll have to add this to my list too!

Nikki, this is a gorgeous bag, you are a very clever crafty lady! I too am addicted to my bias tape maker, I even cut some strips out just to make tape, I didn't even have a project for them. It's often the little things in ,life that make me smile :)

The bag looks fantastic Nikki - I love the fabric combination. You've reminded me to use some more PLAIN fabrics in my bags! Cord is fantastic - and it mixes so well with all those prints that I love. Do I get to test this one too ;-) ?
