I few years back I posted a project making use of old floppy disks, however I still have a pile of disks left over.  I remember seeing imanalchemist'sFloppy Disk Bag and figured that would be a great way to use up some of those disks.  I didn't really need a messenger bag, I wanted something smaller, a sleeve for my laptop and Ipad. 

I took a slightly different approach in assembling my sleeve, first I sewed the material and stitched the disks on directly.  I realized when making my bag, I could also convert it into a stand by folding over the front flap and wedging it between the two rows of disks on the back (kind of my own version of an Ipad smart cover.)

Step 1: What You Will Need

  • sturdy fabric
  • floppy disks ( I used 12)
  • cord
  • keyboard key
  • elastic cord
  • sewing machine
  • large sewing needle
  • Dremel
