Quilted Laptop Bag Tutorial

For my birthday this year, my Mister gifted me with a brand new laptop. It was an extravagant gift to say the least, but one of the most thoughtful he’s ever given me. My old computer was a dinosaur and took 20 minutes to load a website. It wasn’t the most efficient way to run an online business! Since the old laptop was such a beast I didn’t take much care when I was bringing it places, I’d just toss it in a bag and off I went. I wanted to make sure my shiny new laptop got proper treatment, so I made it a pretty quilted bag of it’s own! Here’s my laptop bag tutorial if you’re interested in making one for yourself!

I don’t have much experience making quilted items, as it’s a new skill I’ve been developing. It’s rather fun to learn new things! So I’m sure there are things I could have done differently during this project.

This is just my little disclaimer that I’m no quilting expert!

But I’m happy with the result and I use the bag often, it’s super practical. So I figured I’d share my laptop bag tutorial whether it’s perfect or not!

I’ll be honest, I’m starting to run out of things to say in this nursery decor series! Lol. I think these beautiful free printable scripture verses can speak for themselves though.

One thing I noticed while doing my research is that not every image you click on will take you to a website. Sometimes the picture just opens up and it’s kinda yours for the taking. BUT I would warn against this. Those images have probably been stolen and they aren’t supposed to be free.

I made sure that every bible quote printable I found links back to a proper website where the owner has definitely offered the printable for free. I’m all for freebies, but I’m also all for supporting artists. 🙂
