It’s 4:30 am and I can’t sleep. Bad for me, but good for you. Why? Because I have finished my first-ever tutorial! I have had the pleasure of making many things from the tutorials which very creative people have posted for free on their blogs, and after taking advantage of so many I thought it would only be fair to add my own. Now, I usually work from patterns, but last year I wanted to make my own laptop bag and couldn’t find anything I liked. So, I came up with this:
It has a big pocket in front to hold my cord and accessories, and then the main pocket comfortably fits the laptop. I got a lot of nice comments on it on Facebook and my sister-in-law mention that she might like me to make her one. Well, a few months passed and we never really discussed it but as her birthday was coming up can you guess what I made her? (I’m sure you can). Here it is:
Don’t you just love this Amy Butler fabric? I made a few changes when I made this bag including a stronger fabric for the handle, and a contrasting band on the front flap. I am happy to report that she loved it! And now…. you can make your own bag to love with this Laptop Bag Tutorial.
It is my very first tutorial and I tried my hardest to make it as clear as possible, but I don’t expect it to be perfect so if anything doesn’t make sense, please let me know. And if you do actually use the tutorial to make yourself a bag I’d love to know about it! Happy sewing!
