Initial idea from Jana from Heidelberg:
I would like a larger handbag into which a 17 inch laptop fits. The material should be able to withstand rain and the bag should be zippered. I also want another small zippered inner pocket inside the pocket. I would like to have a nice African pattern on the outside, similar to the picture attached
In case you want to have your own idea realized just follow this link.
The story of the project:
Will it fit just the laptop or other items as well so that we know how much extra room you’d like in the bag?
Thank you, looking forward to your response.
Kindly allow me 1-2 days to check on available prints and get back to you.
I’m sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Based on your color preference, please see rge lrint available for you to choose from.
thank you very much for the selection. The last pattern (dark blue with red circle) is my very favourite.
For the other panel, we can do it in red then, for contrast or the similar dark color.
If I understand correctly, the outer of the whole bag will be in the print fabric yes?
I’ve just got the fabric and shall start working on Monday, will upload pictures of the progress from Tuesday.
Again, many thanks for your order.
My apologies for the delay in responding to your message.
I have reattached the pictures explaining the process of creating the structure of the bag as well as the material used.
We have put a waterproof lining so that your laptop will be protected from spills or light rain while it’s inside.
We have also put a zipper on the inside pocket so that you can close it and it will move in the same direction as the zip at the top of the bag.
We have also boxed out the base to the dimensions you provided; what is remaining is the straps which we are putting last. One side will be plain black and the other side will be African print.
Do let us know what you think of this so far.
The bag stands on its own but let me know if you’d like us to put an additional base at the bottom to make it more stiff and to protect the base as well.
Best wishes, Jana
It has a zipper closure at the top.
the bag looks amazing! It is even better than I imagined it. I am looking forward to receive it. Thank you very much!
