Yes… is time again to choose a name for my next pattern….AND as usual I am yelling out to you all for HELP! LOL

Laptop Bag by ChrisW Designs

Here’s some info about my next pattern, a Laptop Bag:

The Laptop Bag comes in two sizes, with plenty of storage pockets to keep you organised! This spacious padded laptop bag boasts a front flap closing with a hook and D ring hiding a large exterior slip pocket perfect for paperwork, which has a smaller slip pocket and pen pocket inside.

There are also two large pleated slip pockets which are perfect to house your laptop charger and cords. A Large main pocket houses a 17” laptop in the larger bag and a 13” laptop in the smaller bag. It is free from any other pockets so your laptop doesn’t risk getting any scratches or external damage from rubbing!

Turn the bag around and you have another pleated pocket with flap, which is padded and closes with a magnetic snap, perfect for your iPad. Complete with an adjustable strap and an optional grab strap so you can carry it across the body, over the shoulder or just grab the Grab Strap for a quick getaway….

Approx. size: SMALL: 26.6cm W X 38cm H X 4cm D. (10 1/2″ W X 15″ H x 1½” D.)
LARGE: 30.5cm W X 45cm H X 4cm D. (12″ W 17 3/4″ H X 1 1/2″ D.)

Both sizes of the new Laptop Bag

  2. What a great bag. Well done with this design, it definitely looks like another winner!
    With all those pockets for laptop, ipad, phone, cables and such, I’d have to suggest naming it ‘All tech’d out’, because it gives you the means to take your technology out with you!☺

  3. What about ‘The Urban Explorer’ or the ‘Tech Savvy Tote’ or maybe the ‘Geeky Hipster’ or ‘The Inner Geek’. Good luck choosing and I love the design by the way!

  4. I like your idea, but since I first saw it as Toe-go maybe spelling it with a couple of uppercase letters would help people pronounce it correctly? ToGo Tote. Best of luck.

  12. Don’t think these have been suggested yet… how about Travel’n Tech Tote or Tech Tools Travel Bag?
    By the way, Christine, if you’ve had a chance to merge your docs together, you can send me what you have again for a final look-see. 🙂

  13. It looks like something I would have carried when I was living in Chicago, (especially with the more secure hook), so I’ll suggest the Grant Park Tote. Or just the City Park tote if you don’t want to be specific.

  14. Hi, Christine!! Great looking bag! Ok-here are my suggestions:
    The Grab-It-All Tech Bag
    The Grab-N-Go Tech Bag

    The Gotcha Gadget Bag
    The Sidewinder Tech Bag (my husband’s idea):)

    Have a great weekend!

  15. What immediately caught my eye about this bag is that the laptop rides in the bag sideways, or on end. I carry a 17″ laptop around for business, and I struggle along with this huge bag that feels like I have a small canoe under my arm… I love this endwise concept!
    My name suggestion comes from the way in which programmers describe a particularly well planned and concise piece of programming code. They call it elegant.
    So my name suggestions reflect that:
    Slim Elegance
    Slim & Elegant
    très élégante (pretty sure this is universally recognized as Very Elegant)
    High Tech
    All Business
    I will definitely be giving this one a try whether I win the pattern or not! Have been very much looking forward to this pattern.
