Laptop Bag

This week I have been working on a commission. You may remember a couple of weeks ago I posted a round up of laptop case tutorials from around the internet. The bag was being purchased as a gift, the purchaser requested a zipped case which could be used to protect the laptop inside another bag, the receiver of the gift requested a shoulder strap. In order to combine both requests I made a slim detachable shoulder strap so the bag can be used on it’s own or as a case inside a bag.

I decided to use the pattern at designsponge for the basic case. The case is made of cotton fabric so I decided to strengthen the lining with heavy weight interfacing and an iron on wadding Vileseline H630.

This is the first time I have used Vileseline, which I found easy to use. The combined weight is perfect for the laptop case adding strength and protection. Next time I am going to try out the suggestion of quilters wadding and fabric adhesive spray – I’m always keen to keep costs down for purchasers!

I combined the pattern with one over at clearly tangled for the ruffle. Adding the ruffle did add an extra dimension when working out the right sized out fabric piece but I got there:)

I had a dilemma about the middle fabric, so asked Facebook fans for their opinion – at the time of stitching it was equal votes for each colour choice, and then the inevitable happened – I chose the coordinating fabric, and Facebook fans chose the alternative grey!! But I enjoyed seeking a second opinion:)
