Introduction: How to Make a Cool Laptop Bag

another way to recycle your old jeans


GaryMeow (author)2011-04-17

I made a similar bag about 3 years ago out of one of those old jeans that come up to your belly button, which made it deeper. I used the legs to make a shoulder strap. It's an excellent book bag but I don't have a laptop *yet*...

its a good idea, but it needs a second layer atleast. the buttons and zippers and other thicker points make for concentrated pressure points if it ever gets crushed against something.

<3 A trip to the thrift shop for me to find large enough jeans.

For me its not large enough, its strong enough, my laptop is about 8 or 9 pounds, but it works great so i can't complain.

I think this is a great idea, but unfortunately my waist isn't big enough for me to make one for my 17-inch widescreen laptop.

...Or maybe that's fortunately my waist isn't big enough...

UNfortunately mine is. lol.

I'm sorry. you should use a bigscreen tv attached to a desktop computer as a laptop. then you'd feel like a twig!

Wow that is a really good idea! May I ask, what is this song?

Great video and project. I can't wait to use it! Of course, I could just be saying that because I have a Macbook and an iPod ;) Seriously though, great demo!

Rossiroller (author)booksavvy2009-01-05

you could stick the ipod in one of the back pockets

HEY YOU (author)2008-10-17

I feel bad for those of you whose jeans are not large enough for a laptop bag!!!! - Mine of course could be fashioned into a WEB SERVER BAG - Nice job Giannyl!!!!

you could also use the bag for any of your other stuff if you don't have a laptop, or your jeans are too small for a laptop.
