When I saw this pic in the Amy Butler's Style Stitches book, I knew immediately that I needed—not wanted it for my computer bag, and I knew what material I wanted to use.
that I used to make my daughter a different Amy Butler bag. I always wished it was my bag—I loved that fabric.
Now to pair up the fabric to make the bag with… hmmmm… it took going to a different state (really visiting my brother in Texas) to find the base fabric, then, finally the brown at a different store. FYI, Dallas has sooo many more fabric stores than we have in Kansas City! I modified the pattern to fit my computer—
lengthened it and made it a little wider to fit any kind of desk or manual. Then inside I put in pockets for a mouse, a stick, and a small extra. On the other side is a pocket that can hold a folder or file.
I also put the little feet on the bottom, for a designer touch. I love my computer bag! (That little bag is for the computer cords!)
The only thing I would do different is put a heavier looking zipper in it. This one does the job, but looks wimpy to me.
Can I tell you again, I LOVE it!!! LaLaLa!!!
