Happy September – and happy back to school! We may not be grade school kiddies anymore, but even we find ourselves hauling our laptops into cafes more and more as the temperature drops. Can we stay stylish without our Lisa Frank folder pack? Yes we can, thanks to this week’s GoodwillNyNj and BurdaStyle’s Boutique You project: the Laptop Bag with Straps.
So how do you make this happen? Well, class, first you shop for fabric at your local Goodwill. Choose wisely, or choose ‘em all – we have tons of prints and materials for tiny prices. Just make sure you choose a durable weave, just in case that bully tries to rough you up for milk money. Once you’ve brought your fabric home, click this link to see BurdaStyle’s step by step DIY how-to. Then you whip up your new laptop bag and flaunt it like nobody’s business.
If you’d like to participate in a little Show and Tell, we’d love it. Post your photos and comments about this bag and the Boutique You series on our Facebook Fan Page or tweet us your thoughts on Twitter. We’ll be sure to give you an A+ for effort, originality, and reusability. Gold stars for everyone!
