Craft book projects #2

My second craft book from the library was Bag Bazaar: 25 Stylish Bags to Sew in an Afternoon. Overall this is a good book, with a variety of bag styles to choose from. I decided to make a laptop sleeve, which is loosely based on the "Ellen" pattern from this book, though I changed it up by adding a flap. I used a nice canvas print fabric I found in Thailand, and vibrant blue fleece for the lining. It came together easily, and didn't take a lot of time.

Makes me want to dig out the sewing machine!

Never mind that every single time I use a sewing machine, it breaks within the first 5-10 minutes! I can thread it and know HOW to sew, but give me 10 minutes and the dang thing will break!

So cute!! The fabric is gorgeous and I LOVE that you used blue for the contrasting lining.

The fabric pattern is the "apple" pattern by Katvig, Scandinavian design.
