I decided some months back to design a computer bag for classes. I wanted it to hold not only my laptop, but all of the other paraphernalia I use when taking or teaching classes. In other words, it had to have a lot of pockets. Not only pockets mind you, but pockets with zippers and/or velcro in order to keep everything safe and secure. This is the design that I finally came up with. I used only good quality home dec fabric inside and out but also placed duck canvas, along with warn ad natural, in between those fabrics. Needless to say, this is one sturdy bag. However, when you are carrying around an expensive laptop with all of your other gear and tools that you may need, it is imperative to have a sturdy bag. I have also provided a couple of pictures of other totes that my daughter and I sell. When getting certified as a teacher back in Alabama, this tote pattern was one of the many projects that we worked on. I loved it because it had so many pockets on the inside. How I miss those times going back to Martha Pullen schools. Good times. (Just a note, there is a huge sale going on at Martha's right now. You might want to check it out!) Need to get going as I am sewing 4 millie.
