Hello Craftster community. I am new here, and also a n00b in sewing.
I have laptop backpack like this (not slots n things, just sections):

(can't show images yet)


This backpack is used to carry my laptop, but because I carry the AC adapter, mouse, mouse pad, books and pens as well, it gets very cluttered inside. I want to sew nets and black fabric in there. This is how about I want to look like:


How would I sew it, and any advice on materials?

Also, in what kind of stores can I find these nets?

You should be able to find similar type fabric at most fabric stores like Joanns.

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!

What I would do is make a bag insert - a panel with pockets - and attach it to the inside of the bag with snaps or velcro. That way you can test out what works/doesn't and you can change things over time if needed. Just take a newspaper or grocery bag to trace the size of the inside and you're good to go.
