My niece Laura recently completed her coursework for a Masters degree in Education.

She hopes to find a job as an English teacher at the High School level.

When I first saw this fabric, I knew I had to make her something from it.

It is oversized, to accomodate her laptop!I used the coordinating black fabric for the bottom, as well as for an insert to make the bottom more sturdy

Very nice looking bag.  I could see me using something like this.  Great fabric, too.

Nice work!  I made a baby quilt out of the same fabric. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330309.0 

I love your bag and I hope your niece loves it too.  I'm so happy with my project that I want to use this fabric line again.  (Authentic, for Moda)   This is great inspiration for that.
