First, I embroidered some yardage of Nethercote, a fabric from the Miscellany line from Cloud9 fabrics . Cloud 9 fabrics are all organic cotton and printed with low impact dyes. They are beautiful and great to work with.
I quilted a piece of solid purple fabric for the back of the bag.
The quilting lines run horizontally on the finished bag to help the flap stay folded closed.
I sent the bag off to Michelle Engel Bencsko of Cloud9 Fabrics for her booth at Quilt Market. I hope she likes it.
I used the laptop sleeve pattern by Keyka Lou. I shortened the flap so that more of the embroidery shows and also omitted the velcro closures. I think the horizontal quilting lines help the flap lay closed.
