Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag

As I mentioned before Lyndsay made a bag for my Macbook. She saved about $30-$40 by making it herself by going shopping at Goodwill on various occasions and found all of the materials she needed to do the job. She made it into messenger bag which was the style I wanted. She put three pockets under the flap: a large one on the right to hold my iPod earphones, a middle one that my iPod slides nicely into and a left one for whatever else I may need to carry. Then on the backside she made a great hidden zippable pocket to hold my laptop’s power supply.

In this case the whole really is greater than the sum of its parts. The shoulder strap was the only part that we bought as-is. The main part of the bag (the dark corduroy) is actually a woman’s skirt. The strap and buckle which secures it shut is a belt. And the orange corduroy is some fabric Lyndsay already had around the house. The grand total for this masterpiece? Four dollars!

She has just blown my mind with this latest creation. I look forward to putting it to good use.
