My new laptop,bag and other things

So I told my husband I wanted my own computer, preferably a laptop, since I was the only one in the house who didn't have their own computer. Being the wonderful, sweet, amazing man that he is he bought me one for an early Christmas/Birthday present. I LOVE it! He got me a cherry red , Dell Inspirion 17 (that's a 17 " monitor... huge), with a full number pad and well .... its just fabulous. So of course I had to get myself a case/bag for it. Me, being the crafty girl that I am, decided it would be great to make one with cool fabric etc. So I found a pattern that actually will fit a 17" laptop, and got my supplies. Yea... it would have most likely been cheaper to buy one, but it would have been so boring, and probably a basic black. It took me 3 days to make, but 2 broken needles and several "oh crap's" later here is my bag, laptop sleeve, and my new "toy".

While I was feeling crafty, I decided to use the extra fabric to make a cover for my camera strap. I got kinda crazy... I mean what am I gonna do with 4 camera strap covers? Look snazzy, I suppose, while I am out shooting pictures!

Here are some pics of the covers I made.
