So for Xmas I got a ginormous laptop. I love it! Love it more than I should love any object, also I am clumsy. And I HATE black laptop bags available commercially. What's a girl to do?? Craftster to the rescue. I commissioned SeaOfStars to make me a laptop bag. After 35 million PMs with all of my "i want this but not that" and near disasterous shipping (no thanks to USPS) ITS HERE!! AND ITS FREAKIN ADORABLE!! I have to share it so you can all drool as well. SeaofStars is incredibly talented, the whole thing is just pefect and soooo professional looking. It's chocolate brown corduroy the photos can't capture the color. And without further ado, more pics than you care to see:
Looks pretty good to Baby:


Applique closeup (how cute is this?)


Inside pocket perfect for CDs/DVDs and my wireless mouse (isnt the lining cute too?)


Sweet little side pockets for my cell phone or perhaps pens? Either way they add a splash of color


In action


So there you have it. I am MORE than thrilled. SeaofStars is a sewing wizard

I have that laptop too! The Dell Inspiron 6000? heh :]
The applique is adorable! I was so thankful when she posted a tut!

It's an Inspiron 9300. I think its virtually the same as the 6000. Tut or no tut I could NEVER do anything so neat and clean. I LOVE the applique and how she lined up the fabric so the dot looks like the eye.

Let us never speak of the shipping fiasco ever again  Roll Eyes But it was SOOO worth the wait

Me too! The entire bag is amazing, but the elephant is my favorite. If I were a laptop, I would want to live in that bag.
