OK, like many of you, I was struggling to find a suitable bag for my notebook, but all I could find were bags for laptops and they were all too big.  So I sat down and designed my own...  just measured my notebook, added a few more inches, and voila!  Here's what I did:

The outside fabric is corduroy, the inside fabric is flannel, and for interfacing I used those heavy battings used for baby cribs...  yes, I guess I'm kinda freak about not scratching it...LOL!  As you can see, I added an outside pocket (which can hold papers, etc.) and two inside pockets to hold the mouse, electric cord, and probably my MP3 player Wink

Everything fits perfectly...  so you shouldn't be surprised on how proud I'm of it!  Wink Grin  So what do you think?

Thanks for looking!

Adorable! I need to make myself one too.  I have a boring black neoprene case - blah!  I like your decorative stitching!

It looks great.  I love the idea of using something soft on the inside.  Good job.
