Laptop carrier bag by patterns by Annie

Mary wanted a new laptop carrier bag for Christmas so I looked online for patterns.  I found a pattern (ByAnnie.com) which was the right size and had an adjustable strap and 2 handles.  Mary gathered some fabrics together of colors that she liked.  I chose one of the fabrics for the focus fabric and then found coordinating fabrics.  I combined ideas from the two styles of the laptop bag because Mary wanted a large zippered pocket on the outside to hold the power cord.  I added 2 strips of paper piecing to give some detail to the front and back of the bag.  I used Soft n Stable for the stabilizer of the bag.  I was concerned that the bag would be too thick around the edges to sew with this stabilizer so I modified the width of the pockets to create less bulk.  I stitched together a couple of pieces of stabilizer to slide in the bottom of the bag.  I found some of the directions confusing so I used some easier techniques that I knew would work for the pockets and the strap/handles.  I am glad that Mary likes her new laptop carrier bag. I attached a little green Scottie dog that Mary gave me to the side strap. Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
