I made a laptop bag this week! It started out as a navy blue pull-over sweatshirt that I bought in Utah when I was in 9th grade and my marching band was playing for the Paralymics. Since that time (all the way back in 2002), my family went through a break up, an eviction of our house, my father losing his job, my mom totaling the car, and 4 years of living in a motel. Fastforward to now and we have 3 cars, a house we have been settled in for over 4 years, and a much more stable crafter. =] (Actually it was because of living in a one room motel with 4 people that got me to want to start crafting, but that is a different story.)
Anyway, my older brother has been cleaning out our garage recently, and when I peaked in and saw this sweatshirt, I had to rescue it from the garbage! I did try wearing it, but it had holes and didnt do my curves any justice
So I decided to turn it into an awesome/ unique laptop case! I'm a Mac girl all the way, and my baby is my 15 inch MacBook Pro. Everything I used for this project was from my stash. The straps were remnaits from a dress I made for my sis, the zipper was given to me from my aunt, and the interior was from a quilt I did a few years ago.
Inside: Each side is 4 layers of batting, and a piece of light blue flannel
On the back, with the bottom of the original sweatshirt, I added a velco-closed pocket for my charger.
Comments and Critiques ALWAYS welcome. I am still rather new to sewing, and I have never made a laptop bag before. What do you think?
