This bag is a prototype. I'm planning on making another version out of sage green cotton duck and and nice reddish brown leather.
The bag is 10 x 10 x 2 inches, while the netbook is 9 x 6 5/8 x 1 1/8.
I'm using some very heavy padding - 3/8" closed cell foam and poly
batting - which is kinda excessive. Again, I was using what I have on
The top has two d-rings that the handle attaches to. I'm going to make
a back that has two large pockets on it and velcro to hold it in place.
I'll also put loops on the top that will go over the d-rings that will
also hold it in place. I can also make a full sized additional shallow
pocket that can fit in between the two pocket back and the front pocket
as sort of a hidden pocket when all three bits are used together, or as
a alternate back. I've also considered making the pockets on the back
removable ala Molle. One could also be a fanny pack (with removable
straps). It's been an interesting exercise.
Kind of a modular briefcase.
