A friend and I are doing doing a 'bag exchange' where we each make each other a bag and mail them off. I tried to make her's big enough to suit a laptop, but I didn't make a big enough seam allowance - woops! I wanted to make the bag extra sturdy to hold a weighty laptop, so I used a french seam for the bottom of the bag... only now the bag isn't even big enough to fit a laptop. Irony!
It's about 98% finished. I was too excited to take pictures to cut off the loose threads
There is a pocket in the front, though it looks almost invisible.
