Carryall for my Netbook & More

Recently one of our quilt guild members
issued a challenge to the rest of us.

Her challenge:
using the home dec samples that she rescued from going to the trash
[they were out-dated].
we are to make some thing from these samples,
show and tell about it,
make some thing from them to donate to the guild as a $$$$ maker.

Earlier I posted about a Roly Nester zip bag made from the samples.
I donated one to the guild
it was part of that evening's giveaway.
[Actually, my dil won it - fair and square - and she was thrilled]

My next project in this challenge used FOUR of the samples
I made another Simply Chic Carryall


I made it for my netbook
- - - pretty neat, huh ? - - -


As you can see in addition to my netbook
I've a place for my ear buds, surge protector and
wireless mouse.


I used store bought handles this time.
They just seemed to go with the wonderful carpet bag samples.


I've finally picked a theme for my next giveaway.
I'll work on it a bit this evening, hopefully, to finish it up.

  2. What a beautiful bag. I love the carpet bag look. I need one of these for my laptop. Beats the big bulky briefcase I carried when I traveled for work.

  6. Oh WOW Gerry! I adore the carpet bag and really love how it's so vintage and chic, and yet it houses a modern gadget! It's absolutely adorable.

    I also love how you've given me a little giggle (thank you!) when I first opened your blog and saw those lovely pins (legs) modelling your ("their!!!") apron!!!! LOL! THank you for the giggle!!!

    Hugs!!! Vikki xoxo

  7. That's a fantastic way to use up those fabric samples. Plus it's a very chic way to carry your netbook.
