This makes into a beautiful small computer bag! I made this for my daughter's new 13" laptop computer and it fit perfectly. I wish I could post a picture because it turned out so beautiful. I made it from a black and red paisley material with a solid red flap and embroidered her monogram on the flap. She loved it and said it looked like a Vera Bradley bag! The directions were easy to follow and well written. The only thing I did differently was to add interfacing to the handle, in addition to the stabilizer, to give it even more durability. I also used both the turn lock and two magnetic snaps on the flap so it would not buckle when used with the handle. If I needed another computer bag, I would definitely make this one again!
