My new bag
Not exactly how I was thinking it would end up. I wanted more of a larger bag width wise and shorter height wise. This works out ok though, my laptop still fits and I could also use it as a larger purse. I adapted a tutorial from Film in the Fridge. At first I was going to do one like I had made before, instead I decided to try the extra bottom panel. Not as hard as I thought it would be, but considering I didn't plan for it when doing my initial calculations and cutting, I'm just happy I made it work. I also worked in a few inside pockets and a magnetic clasp.
I also used some ribbon (50% off at Hobby Lobby, love that store) for part of the handle.
I got the canvas on clearance at Hobby Lobby in the remnants section a while back and never was sure what I was going to do with it. This bag is perfect, gave it some weight. I made the fabric flowers out of some of the extra fabric (that I am also planning some other stuff with). They are pins so I can remove them if I want. I got the green dot and swirly fabric for $4 at an etsy store. I love it so I'm definitely going to have to get more before she sells out.
