My friend's birthday is coming up & she asked me to make her a laptop bag. I have decided that I will make it messenger bag style. I think I will use the tutorial that says, messenger bag (the plain one, second down) I'm not a great sewer but I'm sure I can do that.
Now, here's the complicated part. Bc it will be a laptop bag, I need to add in some sort of padding. I looked in JoAnns & there is some padding (I'm sure there is an official name for this, but Idk what it is) its green. Ranging from like 10" to like 1/2" thick. I've also considered some sort of thick batting. So here are my questions:
1. Which do you think would be best?
2. Which do you think would be the least difficult to sew in?
3. At what point in the bag making process should I put this in?
4. Should I just make like a sleeve for it to go in & not try to sew it in?
AHHHH... she has more faith in my sewing skills than I do. I tried to tell her that I would BUY her a laptop bag. She insists that I create it.
Thank you in advance for your help!
