so i actually made a different laptop bag before this one... padded and everything. got to the end (just needed to sew zipper, lining and strap on) and decided that i hated how it looked....... i still hate how it looks. i had an image in my head and it just didn't turn out as sweet as i wanted.....

so i scrapped the whole thing and made a totally different one.
this was my first time sewing with vinyl and i LOVE how it looks but i don't love how it sews.......... despite that, i think i'll still use it in the future.
i actually plan on making a little bag to go inside of it for my mouse and all those extra little annoyances. i also LOVE the fact that it's waterproof.... NE Ohio?? yeah..... lots of precipitation... cruddy days.... we're used to that.

here's the down part... i don't think that i will have room for a sleeve.... as of right now it's not a padded bag. i was just going to make a big bag and make a sleeve for my computer to sit in. it's pretty tight getting it in.....  Undecided  Cry
i may just take the zipper out..... suggestions welcome.




here it is in its entirety..

I love it.  I'd just use it as an everyday bag and make a new one for your laptop.  You did a beautiful job on the flower detail.  There are a lot of posts on Craftster that may give you hints on how to better deal with the difficulties of sewing with vinyl in the future.

I LOVE this.  It's gorgeous.  My advice for the vinyl:  Buy a teflon sewing foot.  It will save your live and free you from wanting to sew your piece out the window.  I have struggled many a time with this and was finally freed by a friend and a teflon foot.

Holy cow, that's adorable!  I love it!  Maybe use it as an everyday tote and make a new, larger one for your laptop?
