It’s pink!

6 06 2009

My friend Sue in San Diego said she liked my other colourful laptop bag, but there was too much blue and green in it for her, and could I make a pink one. Well, I needed to test the laptop pattern I’ve written a final time (I will be selling it in my Etsy store soon…), so I figured I may as well hunt out some pink fabric from my stash and see what I could do.

I cut it out and got started at yesterday’s craft afternoon, and finished it today after getting the power brick and mouse dimensions from Sue. It’s hard to see in this photo, but there’s lots of wavy pink quilting over the main fabric, and the cross-hatch quilting on the contrast fabric. It’s pink!

If Sue doesn’t want it, I’ll be selling it in my store. No surprises! Sue *loved* it, so it will be winging it’s way across the Pacific Ocean tomorrow sometime.

Whoa I love pink and I was drooling when I saw that bag. You have a really nice talent, keep it up.

I can always make a custom one 😉 Just start a conversation with me via my Etsy store ( — I’ll need details such as physical dimensions of laptop, power brick and mouse. And what sort of pink you like!

I can’t wait to see it! It IS pink and it’s perfect for someone who is addicted to PINK! Can’t get enough PINK!

Kinda sad though when your friend all the way around the world knows how addicted you are to pink and then just happens to offer to satisfy my pink cravings! I mean, really, how could I say “no”? HA! Couldn’t!

Thanks Rhonda! You’re awesome! Of course! 🙂

I got my new laptop bag today and now I don’t have to do a happy dance without it. I love it. It’s even better than the pix and I can’t wait to take it with me to my office next week. I already put my (pink!!) mouse in it and as soon as I’m done working for the day, my laptop and power cord will reside in it and quite cozily for the evening. It’s really well made as well as being beautiful.

Thank you, Rhonda! Hugs!
