Last week I took a class in using Electric Quilt. Yes! I finally took the plunge! I am still playing with it a lot, so no results to share yet. But, oh my, the possibilities are amazing. Actually, the possibilities are that I will become lost in the computer world. LOL!
But, this post isn't about EQ (yet). This is about the carry bag I made for my laptop! If I'm taking it to classes, I need to carry it safely and all together.
I looked all over for a ready-made or a pattern. But, of course, nothing was just exactly what I had in mind. Sounds like a perfect excuse for a new project! Yeah. Like I need another one!
I wanted to have pockets for the adapter and my mouse, and maybe for the thumb drive. And I wanted zippers!
When I open it all up, I have a surface to work on, and I don't have to stash the bag anywhere. The bottom section is lined with a thermal fleece - like you put in potholders - plus a solid piece of plastic foam in case I don't have a table top to set it on.
It worked great! Well, almost. Of course, there are some issues to be worked out if I ever do another one of these. But that's not too likely! I may need to strengthen the strap. It seems a little thin - and this is one bag I definitely do NOT want to drop!
