Laptop Shoulder Bag DIY

Laptop Shouder Bag On Laptop Should Bag with Supplies

I don’t know about you, but I get tired of juggling my laptop in hand back and forth from the office along with the ten other things that I tend to carry to and from work as well.  Basically, I have a crap load of stuff to carry so I decided to make a cross body laptop bag to carry my most important commodity.  Here are the materials and step by step instructions.  Enjoy!

Materials:

1 yard of canvas material
1 yard of standard material (for liner)
leather belt
quilting thread
large sewing needle
button

Instructions:

  1. Measure 4 rectangle panels; 1 canvas and 1 standard material should be 6-8 inches longer than the other two (for the flap).
  2. Sew canvas on three sides.
  3. Sew liner material on three sides.
  4. Turn material on the correct sides and sew the liner into the canvas at the top edges.
  5. Fold together a 4-5 inch slender strip of material, sew together and then sew into the middle top of the flap to make a loop.
  6. Buckle belt and cut in half.
  7. Thread large sewing needle with quilting thread and sew belt on each side of the bag.
  8. Sew button on the front in the spot where the loop falls.
