Intro: 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
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...
