This is a laptop bag I made for my sister in law.  She picked out the fabric and gave me the measurements and said that she wanted a simple, messenger-style bag.

I sat down on Saturday and put this together.

It has thick felt as a padding and is lined on the inside with black courderoy.  The front also has a bit of freehand machine quilting on one of the girl's hair, the flames and on the circle designs in the lower right hand corner.  (Sorry, the pics of the quilting didn't turn out.)




front, the strap and flap are made with the same black cord that I lined the bag with.  the flap is lined with the tattoo fabric...

(this is the view from the back with the flap open)

I ordered the fabric from Hancocks of Paducah.  I prefer the brown version of it, though.   Roll Eyes

Thanks, by the way!  The size is great as it fits the laptop like a glove!
