A laptop bag with a pocket

I have a lot of catching up to do with you, so here's one of my makes during the summer.

My youngest daughter has a laptop and the case that was very much worn. So she needed a new one, would I make her one? She would also need to have room for the battery charger and other 'stuff'.
I decided to make it a quilt-as-you-go project: very easy. I pieced different sized pieces of fabric  together on a piece of batting and then cut it to the size of her lap top.

You can see the 'stuff'  ...
I also attached a key holder, which you can detach from the bag: handy!
The inside is minky left overs from a quilt (the beast) : nice and soft.
It doesn't have a closure/zipper of fastener, because she always puts it in her huge handbag anyway.


She's very happy with it and then, so am I.


  1. no wonder she is pleased xx love the colours you have used xx

  2. what a great idea - especially with the minky inside to protect everything. A good scrap busting project too - wins all around!

  3. Nice, bright, cheery colours there :o)

  4. much much nicer than a bought case, such cheerful colours I am sure she will love this

  5. I love the nice rich colours! I like the idea of putting the minky inside.
