Hello, hello!
Here is the result of a day of cutting, sewing and slight frustration... A bag for my laptop, among other things. I didn't use a pattern, and kind of just decided things as I went along. Little screw-ups here and there, but overall, I'm super happy with it... definitely one of the better things I've done.

Anyways, here it is:





I would've liked to add more pockets, but the piping and lining confused me too much for me to attempt any more. What do you think? ... Thanks for looking! Happy crafting. :0)

I really like it! I've been wanting to make a carryall shaped like this. It's great for not having a pattern. I love the grey and red inside!

That's a really cute laptop bag, and fairly complicated. I am proud of your work! Those side pieces and all that piping are definitely a stretch!!

regrettably, the use of padding completely escaped me. lamesauce. the thought didn't occur to me until i was finished and my dad mentioned it. oh well, i like a banged up laptop as much as the next person. hehe.

That's a great shape and style for a laptop bag. It looks much more sturdy than a basic tote bag.  How far down the sides does the zipper go? Was that difficult to do?

The zipper goes down... about an inch and a half down each side.  It wasn't too hard to put the bag together. I'm not too great at sewing, so for me to do a zippered bag like that is... pretty fantastic, if you ask me. Hehe. But no, it wasn't difficult.
