Laptop Bag Patterns (38 free designs!)
If you need just basic protection for your laptop computer - something to protect it
from dust and scratches - try a simple sleeve made from felt (use a thick, good
quality felt for best results). And what's great about sewing with felt is that it
doesn't fray. Therefore you can sew your bag with the wrong sides together and
leave the raw, unfinished edges exposed, making it a quick and easy project.
And if you need a bit more protection for your laptop - something to guard against
minor bumps and knocks, consider sewing one of the padded or quilted designs
which places a layer of fusible fleece or batting between the layers of fabric.
And for a little extra security you may want to sew one of the designs that zips at
the top. With a secure zippered closure, they'll be no chance of your laptop
accidentally sliding out of your bag.
And if you want the convenience of carrying your laptop bag like a tote or purse,
you may want to choose one of the designs with handles.
And if you're up for a more involved project and would benefit from a kind of “all-in-
one” bag that will hold more than just your laptop, a couple of these projects are
actually tote bags that have a built-in inner pocket for a laptop.
And since a many of these bag projects are simply designed, some of them requiring
just sewing together two rectangular fabric pieces, most of them would likely make a
good project for a beginner. And since you'll likely be sewing through several thick
layers of fabric, just remember to start your project with a new, sharp needle in
your sewing machine.
