Well, finally I can show you one of the patterns I recently tested for Christine at Chris W Designs. This pattern, Gizmo Garage Laptop Bag, is a laptop bag in three different sizes, small for laptops up to 13", medium for laptops up to 15" and large for laptops up to 17". She doesn't leave it to chance. She found out during the testing that manufacturers are not consistent with each other on width, so she created a sizing guide to help you figure out what size pattern is best for you. And, yes you get all three patterns! You can buy it here.
I had just recently purchased some quilting cotton that is a leopard print with shading that makes it look dimensional. Time to make a wild Gizmo Garage (don't you just love that name?)
I made the medium size with a combination of that quilting cotton and some faux leather. The bag is well thought out. The laptop goes in long ways because that makes it is easier to pull out of the bag. The front closes with a snap hook closure that keeps everything secure.
This is the back of the bag. On the back is a padded pocket for a tablet. There are two straps, an adjustable shoulder strap and a grab handle.
Inside is a large slip pocket with pen slip. In front of that are two pleated pockets large enough to store your cords. Yep...I think she thought of everything. I'm not surprised, are you??
Be sure to stop over to her blog to see all of the other testers' bags. They are all so different. You can see them here.
