Asian Inspired Laptop Bag

Added Mar 25, 2011

Cape Town, South...






I’ve been struggling to find a laptop bag that would fit a 17" Laptop, power cables, and mouse that wasn’t a hideous, huge, briefcase-style monstrosity, and didn’t cost a fortune. Eventually I decided to just make my own with some fabric I’ve had lying around the house for ages.

I’m super happy with how it turned out, and far too impatient to trim all those threads before posting, so please excuse any stray bits you might see in the pics!

Material Notes

Floral upholstery fabric, sateen lining and edge binding, satin ribbon trim.




Garment Type
Business, Romantic
Corduroy, Denim, Other, Wool

      Hi Denise. I didn’t actually use a pattern for this project. I just measured my laptop to get the basic rectangle size, and went from there. I’ll try to put up a tutorial if/when I have the time :)
