I just whipped up this super easy laptop bag and I am loving it! I had been using a hand me down case from my husband that looked like it was made out of an old wetsuit. I like this much better!
Just for fun, I added a ruffle to the front and a zippered pocket to the inside lining.
If you’d like to make one for your laptop, here’s my easy laptop bag tutorial.
I’ve included a couple photos in the post to make the tutorial a bit easier to understand. Just let me know if you have questions and I’m happy to help.
In the tutorial, you’ll see Step 8, where I squared off the corners (also called making gussets). It’s hard to describe, but easy to do. Here’s a link to a great tutorial on CraftyDaisies.com. I stitched a 1.5” long seam across the corners to make my gussets.
Making gussets will give your bag a nice flat bottom.
Here are a couple photos of the last steps. Pin the lining to the outside of the bag, turning the raw edges under.
Then slip the handles in and pin.
Topstitch everything together and you’re done!
Linking up to some wonderful parties!
