Look What I Did!

I have a laptop that has a big screen and it's very hard to find laptop bags for the big screens that are anything but black or brown.  Boring!  We need more color in our world.

Wah lah - a colorful laptop bag!  I should call it 'serendipity' for the way it came about. 
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!
Okay, there are a few things I would do differently if I make another one.  But I'm not telling which 'design features' I discovered!! 

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.
