I was just thinking of something similar, then I found this project, originally by jdsaro, I liked it and I made it.
I altered my version a bit; it has different dimensions suitable for a 17" laptop. Also, I didn’t use any fusible interfacing, since I used thick lining for greater protection. Maybe I’ll add a zipper too, but for now it is done, I love it and I thank jdsaro for a great idea and detailed instructions!
exterior: corduroy; interior: thick lining made of synthetic fabric, quilted, with smooth surface and multiple lower layers, usually used for jackets
