so these are my latest large (no pattern) sewing creations modelled by assistant/ little sister.

the laptop bag was a huge dissapointment because of some short sightedness on my part. my laptop fit in it PERFECTLY until i sewed in the zipper (which is the kind that doesn't open at the end). and so just barely my laptop won't fit! i seriously almost cried because i was so pleased with the bag and didn't realize that it wouldn't fit until i finished. so now i need a new laptop to fit my bag  Grin  the bag took forever as it has many layers of fleece for super padding that were a huge pain to sew (especially the zipper)
on to the pics!

expandable pocket for my cords.. i made a mushroom button out of polymer clay and put on it but the stem of the mushroom later broke off  Sad

now for my plaid back pack, that took forever... i'm pretty happy with it but i really wished i had used interfacing its a bit to floppy/slouchy.

a bit to big for a second grader! (good thing its for me  Wink)

thanks for looking!

I just HATE when that happens...all of the planning and work, and then the measurements are not what you wanted!  But it's a great bag and the expandable pocket is awesome!  The backpack looks like it'll fit everything.  Great job on both.  Smiley

GREAT laptop bag! and wonderful backpack! I would love to be able to do that!  (I hate it when something doesn't turn out the right size! I know how that feels!)  Darling little sis!

Thanks for sharing!  ...and thanks to the efforts of the little sister for modeling!
