First ~ I happened to visit a new fabric shop, Circa 15, that has some great new fabric choices.
Next ~ I happened to visit another fabric store, Gathering Fabric Quilt Shop, and they just happened to have a presentation on Making a Fabric Bag. Thank you Susan and Laurie.
Then ~ I happened to decided to go to Houston International Quilt Show to see one of my dolls on display with the Treasures of the Gypsy...... therefore I need a new laptop (and travel) bag.
I measured and modeled the new bag from the old, worn out, purple one that I have loved to pieces. Even put a zipper in it!
This bag is not padded so I will make matching (or coordinating) padded envelopes for my various sized electronic devises to protect them while they are riding safely in my laptop bag. By not sewing in a fixed padded pocket like my worn out purple one had, the new bag will be more versatile for traveling.
