Laptop lugger finished!

Laptop lugger for my sister
My sister asked me to make her a laptop bag that was big enough for her computer and the cords. She also wanted one big pocket as opposed to several little ones.
Nice big pocket
I did this one for her, using some funky typography fabric I found on clearance, and some equally funky linen blend fabrics on clearance from the home decorating fabric section.
The handles are from Quilt a Bag. They are decorated with little bows. How cute is that?
I was so happy to finish this for her today. She picked it up this evening and loved it.
Now, for the big question. Will I finish my iPad tote this week?
I have completed the lining, the quilting and the decorating. That's because Sandra and I got together last Friday and she encouraged me to get my act together. So, the act was put together -- just not the iPad tote. At least the parts are more or less combined at the moment. They are just waiting for me to finish. Yep, that's all.
Mind you, there are just a hundred different people, places, and things that will get between me and the machine before that happens. I just know it.
When I do finish it, you'll be among the first to know. I promise.


  1. C'est magnifique! I'm sure H loved it - and is glad she returned the other one! :D Maybe you should make her a panty bag to match - wouldn't that be a hoot, LOL!

    Yes, you'll finish the ipad tote this week. I double dog dare ya!!! ;)

  2. Great bag - so useful and looks good too!

  3. The bag you made for your sister turned out great! Can't wait to see the one you make for your iPad.

  4. Just popped in to boast ... I got the scraps -- I got the scraps!! WOOOOOooohoooooooooooooooo !!!!!!!!!!!!!! *struts and does a victory dance* :D

    Miss Nancy was working on her iPad bag tonight - it's not done but it is fiiiiiiiiiiiiine - and the fabrics are delish!
