    laptop carrying case

    I'm looking for a pattern to make a carrying case for my granddaughter's laptop. She asked if I could make her one and as she is a new 3rd grade teacher this year, I'm eager to oblige.

    I'm debating pockets inside or out, zipper or no zipper, lining or simply a quilted fabric. I'm even stressing over what fabric to use and will it be sturdy enough.

    Any suggestions?

    Prequilted fabric would make it go faster and it will have nice protection. Or find some "schoolish" fabric and quilt up your own. I would put any pockets on the outside and probably use a zipper for extra safety. There are some nice patterns for laptop computers on line, just google. She will love it either way and always remember you.

    laptop bag

    Here is the bag I made for my laptop. I made my own pattern. I did put extra 987F inside to protect the laptop. I didn't put any pockets inside but did put a pocket on the back outside for my wireless mouse and laptop cord. I hope you'll post pictures when you finish the one you make.

    Simplicity (sewing patterns) has a laptop case pattern - Simplicity 2386. Both WalMart and Hobby Lobby carry patterns, at a reduced price.

    You can make the bag and still by a padded sleve to put the laptop in for extra protection. Even if you buy a laptop bag it has an extra sleve to put the laptop in.

    I'd like to make one like this. What is 987F?

    987F is a fusible fleece by Pellon. Correct?
