Aswell as making lots of bags for gifts yesterday I worked on a bag for me to use to carry my laptop in. I saw a pattern in last months Quick Quilts for a commuter bag which I thought would be perfect for me.
I already had some blue fabrics from the Woodland Delights range by Michael Miller fabrics stashed away waiting for the right pattern to come along. I decided not to put a flap on the pocket as I would be carrying a handbag aswell so it would just be extra sewing!
I found the pattern fairly easy……… apart from the fact that the fusible wadding in the handle went wrong so I have one padded and one non-padded strap.
My laptop fits in the bag perfectly but I have one problem which is that my charger wont fit in aswell…had to pop that in my handbag when I went to work today. I suspect the bag will be perfect for carrying about my netbook and charger but I may have to make a larger bag if I want to put laptop and accessories in the same bag.
Overall I think it was a great project and I got some compliments for the bag at work so successful overall.
