Excuse the quality of the photos ... I'm at the highest ISO setting possible on my camera (6400!!!), so they're a little grainy (OK - a lot!), but this has been a real labour of love and, despite the black skies and rumbling thunder, I wanted to take some photos to share with you!!
Love those 20mm bag feet - thanks Ady for helping me out there with my stock issue!!
Meet my new laptop bag! I struggled with this one .... there were very nearly tears over the bias binding. It was stitched, unpicked, stitched and unpicked again and again until I decided to start over and hand stitch it.
And my sewing machine wasn't too happy with all those layers of very heavy fabric and wadding .. and it let me know about it. Just thinking I should have pressed this again before taking a photo - oh well!
The lining is from a gorgeous Kokka fabric and includes a pleated pocket with flap plus a compartment pocket.
My laptop fits in it really nicely plus some lesson plans and stuff - so it's ready to go to work with me tomorrow.
But I will be making a laptop sleeve from the same pattern (Nicole Mallalieu's, of course) and that lovely black & white fabric for my iPad. The black plastic thing that I inherited with the iPad (from my husband) really isn't doing much for me!
The thing is - that means more bias binding - arghhhh!!!
Anyway, do you like it?
