Padded Notebook Bag

What are you most proud of? I like creating my own padded fabric for totes. More than just grocery or sundries, this tote could carrying and protect your computer device, like a Notebook or Kindle. The two pockets inside have enough room for earbuds and electrical cords. I like using magnetic snaps, but also added the fancy exterior button closure to insure the items enclosed will be very secure. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You can use couching, decorative machine stitches, or free motion quilting to stitch your own padded fabric. It is easy to do. To make your own padded fabric--stitch three layers together. Top fabric/polar fleece for batting/bottom fabric.
