Basic Grey laptop bag

What a grey and damp summers day. I haven't been outside the front door today!

What I have been doing though is sewing. I got out some fabrics I bought at PaperArts several weeks ago, they are Basic Grey patterned fabrics by Moda and are delightful. I used the basic pattern idea from a book called Sew Darn Cute by Jenny Ryan.

I couldn't decide which of the several different fabrics to use so I devized a way to use 4 of them. I liked the idea of the blue spotted fabric as a sort of facing detail, I added a pink pocket on the front which is the same fabric as the lining and flap. I used the brown flowers as the main colour and a different paisley brown fabric for the handles. 

I used my i-top to make a matching badge to go on the flap. First time I had used the large adapter, think next time I will read the instructions.
