i had been planning on makeing a computer case for a while so i can take my laptop with me in september when i go to germany. i wasnt sure how to go about it and only found a couple things that said how but no pictures. so i pretty much went at this with little direction except that i knew what i wanted it to look like in the end. i had at start over a couple of times so i figured to help anyone else out with the same problem i made a tute. so here it is!
first of all heres a look at the finished product...well not totaly i havent put the strap on yet and i plan to bedazzel it (i just got a *gem magic!*) but this will give you an idea
first i put my computer on top of the fabric for measurements, i left about 2-3 inches on each side for extra roomyness
then i pinned the cushiony part(polyester batting)to the outside fabric then sewed it together
then i set that aside and made a pocket for the inside (its kind of hard to see becuase it blends in but its there!) and it would have some elastic in it to keep the things from falling out but i couldnt find it
then i pinned the big plastic zipper(that could/should be longer)to the top part of the bag, folding both peices inward on either side so it would have finished looking edge
my kitten "helped me hold the fabric...and i put my computer on it tocheck the size again/placement of the zipper. i did this about a million times though out the whole process to make sure that it would fit
also i found it was easyer to pin the fabric on while it was unzipped if you do this make sure that you zip it back up before you go to sew it to make sure it is even and attached right
and i dont know how to use a zipper foot so i just put the edge of the regular foot up to the zipper and kept it there really there was no reason to change it.
then after getting the top part of thezipper sewn i went on to pin the corner and edge of it (this was the only hard part of the bag, pinning thezipper on the curve)
then i sewed the rest of the space between the zipper together
and then ta-da! its done!
sorry there was so many pictures to that i got a little crazy but i hope it ends up being helpful to some one somehow
