I couldn't find a laptop bag I liked in the stores, they were either black and boring or bloody expensive, so making one was a pretty good idea. Since I have a few yards of precious Ikea fabric stash, I decided to make one with a set of tea towels and a favourite piece from the discount bin.
The striped materials were actually a set of 3 tea towels.
Front view of the bag. I made it like a messenger bag, except for the extra paddings at the base.
Magnetic clasp and big pockets for documents and of course, wires!
Next time I'll make the cover stiffer. See, I'm still learning.
The inside of the bag. I made the padding-envelope removable when I'm not carrying my laptop around. The padding is the one with the polka dot ribbon bias strips. There's another pocket inside for more storage space.
Side view of bag. The lines on the fabric really helped in aligning everything!
The bottom of the bag.
I think I'll be making more to sell. Need to stop by at Ikea's for more fabric stash. LOL!
