I'm relatively new here....been watching for a while, figured I'd contribute something.
Hooray for my first completed project!! I take my laptop to school with me every day, and I had been using a normal messenger bag for carrying it around, but I got sick of how easily it got banged around in there. So, since I couldn't find a laptop bag ANYwhere that I liked, I decided to make my own. It took me two months to get around to finishing it (procrastination....) but its the first thing of mine that I've legitimately finished and been proud of, in the sewing department. So, needless to say, I'm pretty proud.
Anyways, here it is:
i love the pink inside. i might add a button to that smaller pocket to help hold it shut, but for now its cooperating fine
in laptop-holding action
you can see the fur on the inside of the laptop pocket best in this one. its also got about an inch of padding all the way around it, to save it being banged up.
i recycled some clips from an old backpack to hold it shut, and the strap is just a modified guitar strap
so thats that. it makes me so happy to have a nice safe laptop! i'd love to hear what you think!
