Laptop bag sewing pattern in 2 sizes, messenger bag pattern

With this pattern and tutorial you will learn how to sew a laptop bag with a flap and a zipper closure. 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 bag has 2 zippered pockets and two exterior, open pockets. The length of the shoulder strap can be adjusted to your needs, and the shoulder pad improves wearing comfort. The bag is fully lined, and the seams are finished with a binding tape.
