the people have spoken

gnome laptop sleeve 007

Wow! I guess you want a gnome bag pattern? Okey dokey - I'm working on it as we speak. In fact, your response has been so positive that I hope to have the pattern up for sale before Christmas - can it be done? I think so.

AND, thanks to Joyful Abode's question concerning a laptop fitting in the bag, I've decided to make a matching, padded laptop sleeve as part of the pattern. I'll have to make the sleeve customizable, due to the great variation in laptop dimensions. I love mine - it gives me a wonderful way to cover up that Nascar label that is built into my own laptop (Don't ask - my laptop was a great deal, and we were able to get rid of that loud "engine revving" sound when Windows started up ...)

In other news, I am sick. Again. And I have pinkeye. Woohoo! I think my defenses must be ridiculously low, given the stress of last week. Joy.

The good news? Patrick is making a Chicago-style pizza for dinner. Joy - this time, without the sarcasm. :)

I love the stitching on the laptop sleeve! Very neat. :)
And you're FAST!

Feel better soon... pinkeye is no fun.

Both bags are great! I love the colors and all that great stitching on the laptop cover!
Can't wait for the pattern....but make sure you have an extra cup of soup first.

Oh boy oh boy! I was wanting to buy the pillow pattern but wondering if I should hold out for the bag pattern too. And yes, I can have both!

I'm sick too. Honey and lemon tea for me.

Melissa said...

That is perfect! I just found out that my sister is buying a new laptop after thanksgiving. I know just what pattern to use for her gift now!

I can't wait for the pattern! I tried making something similar after I saw your bag, but I think I used way too much interfacing. I will try again when I have your pattern!
