Made from the Amy Butler pattern, I guess you'd call them protective cases more than bags. I knew I wanted to make one for my brother's girlfriend who recently got a brand new Macbook (not that I'm jealous or anything). While I was buying the materials, I figured I'd go ahead and get enough to make two ... you know, assembly line style.
It opens up and the laptop nestles inside atop a few layers of stabilizer and fusible fleece. I was hoping to have a nice, new Macbook as a prop for my photo, but my work computer will have to do. Again, I'm not jealous or anything.
I was dazzled by the array of Midwest Modern 2 at my local shop and could decide on two exterior / lining combos, but I'm pretty happy with the ones I chose.
So this project really, really pushed me out of my comfort zone. Layers upon layers of canvas duck cloth, extra firm stabilizer, fusible fleece, sew-on Velcro ... it wasn't quite the "quick and easy" project I was hoping for, but I consider it a huge accomplishment not only that I finished, but that the computer fits and the Velcro actually lines up!!
