A Netbook-bag for Less Then 20 €

It looks like there are only two kind of netbook bags available for my EeePC 1000H:
"Affordable but ugly as hell" or "Nice, but i don't want to buy the whole shop!"

So i decided to make a bag myself, based on a CD-bag from HAMA.

Step 1: Gathering the Material

You need:
1 CD-bag, mine was from HAMA and costs 15 Euro
2 pieces of rubber, a lot of rubbers costs me 1 Euro
1 diner set for 1,99 Euro
2 snap hooks, 0,20 Euro each
A cutter, some needles with yarn, double-sided tape and 30 minutes

Step 2: Remove the CD-pockets

First i removed the CD-pockets, they were sewed, so it took just a few seconds with the cutter.

Step 3: Sew

Sew the rubber to hold the netbook, a.k.a. "Damm! Jim, i'm a geek, not a tailor!"

I sewed them this way, that they can hold the netbook while open AND closed.

Step 4: Making the Pocket

For the upper half of the bag i decided to make a "multi-purpose-pocket" out of one diner set, so i cutted it and sewed it together.

Step 5: Add the Pocket to the Bag

I just glued the pocket to the bag with doublesided tape, but you can use what you want ;-)

Step 6: Hook the Belt

At last i cutted of the handle and added a belt with the snap hooks.

Step 7: Additions

After field-testing i sewed the latches for the hooks together and "soldered" an nice hole in them.

I also sewed a little pocket for my mobile phone which works as WiFi-Hotspot when i'm outside and hooked it to the zipper with one of the snap hooks...

    The Wii soft carry case from Game (in the UK) is perfect for my Samsung NC10 netbook. Padded compartment for the netbook and decent size pockets for the PSU, mouse and other leads. And it hasn't got 'Wii' written all over it. Yours looks better, though.
