Here’s a hot off the ironing board new bag – it’s a rush job commission for someone who needs it so she can take it on a trip abroad – tomorrow! She came by Sunday morning to work out the details. I really like working this way – I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, making these bags are a LOT of work…so it makes it much more satisfying to know that what I’m making is JUST what somebody wanted! In this case, she wanted little bits of Velcro on the inside to hold some of the pockets (like the cell phone one) closed. Easy – peasy!

Another reason I love working like this is that people choose the colors that they love…sometimes it isn’t something that I would have put together, but if I do say so myself – these colors are fabulous!

It’s got a handle & magazine pocket on the back:

And inside is a special sleeve for the laptop with a velcro strap to hold it in. This also happens to hold my regular Macbook too! Yes, the Macbook Air is thinner, but she’s got a strechy foam case that she’s going to use for even more padding (beyond the 2 layers of quilt batting and heavy interfacing I use in a laptop bag…this baby has STRUCTURE!

One side has a water bottle pocket,

The front has two big pockets to hold a paperback and a scribbler or notelet:

I hope she loves it, because I sure do!
