Ok.. so my husband wanted a customized laptop bag for his birthday that could carry all of his necessities in it back and forth to work.  But, he wanted it so it was plain on the outside, and with a flame fabric on the inside.

My father is a huge boating person, and we have the extra heavy duty nylon and waterproof boating stuff, so I used that.

Ok.. before DH sees it:

Dad Modelling (size reference - Dad is 6'2", DH is 6'4"):

With a 6 inch binder, a HP laptop and powercord:


Close up of the quilting on the area by the laptop:


And my first time ever doing a Zippered Pouch.  Underneath is an area for the power cord, and there are pen/pencil holders:


Any comments are appreciated!

Great job on your bag! I love how it looks so ordinary on the outside but has a hidden element of surprise on the inside!

(and yeay for Dads that will model!)

I'm interested in personal swaps -- I love bracelets & necklaces and I don't know how to make them.

Oooooh, I LOVE this!  I've never sewn anything more than a pillow case, haha, but my dream project is to make a laptop carrier customized for me, for a 17 inch laptop, lol......I LOVE this, did I mention that?  What did you use for the handle?  That must be a LONG handle for it to be nice and low for a man of your father's height!  So cool.....

I used commercial grade webbing, I believe it was for marine use, but it'll work.  I got it from http://www.ahh.biz Cheesy

Same place I got the outside material from too, it's waterproof, and it's the same material as cloth suitcases.
