I made this messenger bag using Kategirl's tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182493.0.  I was a swap angel for a writer's swap.  I don't usually work with pink but these colours fit nicely with my theme (Hello Kitty).

I made it large enough to fit a 15 inch Macbook pro.  It has a zippered divider and I also added another tab inside with an eyelet.  I then hooked a carabeener through the eyelet so that keys can be hung on it and found easily in such a large bag.  I also put elasticised pockets either end to hold mobile phone/water bottle etc.

Best episode of 'Cops' ever made:
officer- "ma'am why do you have scissors in your pocket?"
drunk lady- "for arts, such as.... crafts?"

i second everyone else's comments!

especially this one! i have a bag that is similar to yours, well it's a tote but it has the middle lined area for the laptop, but it isn't custom made so the laptop can move around a bit too much. this bag is an awesome solution for that. thanks for linking the tutorial too. looks like i have a project for this weekend Smiley

my job is sending me to training in the dc area from october to march. great for the career and social life but bad for the crafting.

wow! thats awesome! i had bookmarked the tute to try out as well, and now i really cant wait. one question for ya tho...how did you attach the elastic pockets? I have not figured that idea out when making a jordy-style bag.
