Since the beginning of time I’ve been searching for the perfect laptop bag. The bag is so important because it goes everywhere with me and holds my most valued material possession. Like most people – I would rather get my car stolen than my laptop.
Every time we traveled, I looked for a bag. Each magazine I read, I hoped there would be a solution. Every mall trip, I asked sales people to see if they knew something I didn’t. I scoured the internet and found a site featuring the latest news on women’s laptop bags. Still nothing that made me pull out my debit card.
In my quest I’d owned the standard black nylon bag, two bags from Lodis and one from Franklin Covey. Yes, each bag sufficiently held my laptop. But it also had to hold other things so I didn’t have to drag a purse along. Add in a lunch bag and I’d officially be the bag lady. Plus, if your bag is supposed to “make” your outfit, these certainly weren’t cutting it.
One day I was standing in the kitchen (where most of life’s big events happen) and it hit me. I wanted to produce my own bag. I looked up at my husband. “I think I want to make a laptop bag.” He replied, “That’s a great idea!” Pause. “How do you do that?”
