My husband and I have started traveling more frequently lately and
I've been meaning to make a bag for my Mac. I finally got around to it
this week. I used Simplicity 3889, bag C. I had to make a few changes
to the sizing and some of the finishing. I got an idea from a photo I
saw to make one side of the bag a woven grid of elastic so I could
organize all my little accessories. Here's the pics! Comments/
critiques welcome!

I love personal swaps, I currently need art (paintings or something to hang on a wall) but I'd be up for anything.

That's pretty cool, esp. with the woven elastic grid, but don't the accessories bother your laptop?  That would worry me.  Is that little pocket it sits in padded??  Love the fabric, BTW!

Very cute!  I have that fabric!  Just can't decide what I'm going to make with it yet.   Undecided

The accessories don't really bother the laptop, I just make sure not to let the screen face towards them. And yes, its all padded nicely Smiley
