About the project

With the help of this pattern and tutorial you will sew a large bag with a laptop pocket. The L-size pattern has been created with 15.4" laptops in mind, and the M-size pattern will fit a smaller 13.3" laptop.

The bag has a very universal form that works well for both men and women. The main compartment in both versions will fit A4 format. The bag has two zippered pockets that are perfect for keeping valuables safe. Two additional exterior pockets can be used for carrying accessories like a mouse and a charger.

The bag features a recessed zipper and a flap with hook and loop closure. The length of the shoulder strap can be adjusted to your needs, and the shoulder pad improves wearing comfort.

From the sewing instruction attached to this pattern you will learn:

  • how to reinforce the bag
  • how to cut out the bag pieces
  • how to sew a zippered pocket
  • how to sew a double, spacious front pocket
  • how to sew a laptop pocket
  • how to sew and install a recessed zipper into the bag
  • how to sew and attach a flap
  • how to sew and attach a shoulder strap

The bag is fully lined, and the seams are finished with a use of a binding tape.
