My sister starts high school this year, and for some reason, is required to carry around a laptop. Since she's not the sort that goes for the boring black cases or the dumb girly "laptop purses", she needed a custom one to tote her computer in *style*. She picked out the fabric (Moda "Frolic" and the ubiquitous ikea hippo print) and helped me pick out a style to
draw inspiration from. Since her laptop is pretty much a square, the narwahl bag from greensmart
seemed like the best design, and we both liked the nifty zipper pocket on the flap.
It's got two carrying handles, for slinging over a shoulder or carrying in your hand. Yay options! The messenger strap is a bit longer, but I have it tied off so that it doesn't take up the whole picture. My sister is *tall*.
The nifty lapped zipper makes the entire flap into a pocket, for carrying even more stuff. You can see the quilting on the flap here; the whole thing is quilted so that it'll keep her laptop nice and safe.
Under the flap, there are 2 really big pockets for cds and dvds and cords(that red line is the top, and they go all the way to the bottom!) and two small pockets, for pens and stuff.
And the inside pocket is just roomy enough to carry a jewel case or a spare flash drive. Funny story about the fabric for the pocket; I'm currently packing my fabric up to move back to college, and I'd already packed all the hippo fabric away, d'oh! The green leafy print was the only fabric out that looked good with the hippos, haha.
Derpy action shot! It's a little past 1:30 AM, so I'm not exactly dressed to the nines. At least I have pants on!
I really love how this bag turned out, and I'm sure my sister will too, once she wakes up! I owed her this bag two months ago, so I'm glad to finally have it finished for her.
