Do you remember the laptop bag I made last year? (see picture below for a refresher) It was a fun project that turned out quite well. My sister like it so much that I gave it to her this summer.
(I added canvas handles after taking that photo.)
That meant I needed to make a new bag for my own laptop.
I started making this patchwork project last summer with fabrics from the Drawing Room collection, but I set it aside because I didn’t know what size my new computer was going to be. (Yes, I have been dreaming about a new computer for a year.)
I finished making it this weekend, and my laptop fits in it perfectly. (It measures about 13″ x 14.5″)
The outside fabrics are upholstery weight, strip-pieced and quilted to batting to make it even more sturdy, and the inside is cotton fabric lining. I added an inside pocket with a zipper to hold the charger cord. I’ve never done a zippered pocket like that, so it was a good challenge for this prototype.
I also added simple ties to hold the bag closed.
I love this bag so much that I’m already making another one to list in the shop! I hope to add more laptop bags over the next month or two.

Your bag turned out perfect. I love the colors. I think I only have one print from Drawing Room but now feel like I need more.
Thank you so much, Staci! I really love how this bag turned out so much that I’m making two more. I haven’t worked with those drawing room fabrics, and I don’t have a lot left, but it’s are heavenly. I wish I had more too in my stash. Guess I’ll have to check Etsy or Quilthome.com. Terri
