I like this bag. My daughter told me I should start using fabrics w/different designs in the same color scheme - you did a great job. I like working w/flat quarters also - nothing bulky & easier to manage.

Your mom is going to love this bag. I like your choice of fabrics. I wish I could do this when I was 13. Great job!

I like the first one - it has more needlework to it.

Thanks Neeterg. I think I'm not going to fold the fabric or do anything to it. I'll insert the lining & prob zig zag the edges together. Thanks for all the help!

What I've got basically is a quilted piece of fabric, but I used 2 layers of fleece as my batting. Sorry, I prob should've said that from the start. I zig zagged the edges to make it easier to keep together. Now I have to finish the edge (fold it over) so I can insert the lining & sew close like making a regular bag, but the fold has 2 layers of fleece each (making 4 layers). It's really bulky. I might do what auctionclerk suggests, leave the edge unfinished. After that maybe I can somehow finish the edge to make it look nice. Thanks for trying to understand what I'm doing.

I am making a laptop sleeve for my daughter for Christmas. The material is basically cotton w/2 layers of fleece that I quilted together. When I fold over the top 1/4" edge (which has been zig zagged to act as on piece of fabric), it is really bulky. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to handle the bulk - I would basically be sewing 4 (FOUR) layers of fleece together.  Huh  It's really bulky. I've tried to steam iron it. I read about pounding the material flat. Maybe I designed it wrong, but I can't go back. I'm at the point of sewing the quilted parts together & have the bulk to deal with. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated - thank you.

I used a 7" zipper & followed the measurements exactly, except, the 1" tab came up too short so I fused a little more to the ends (can't really see what I did). I've been having probs w/the ends - I've tried w/1", 1-1/4" but I think I finally got it.
