Work Bag for Hubby

I just finished this bag at 3.30am last night. Adam slept late, at half past 12, which gave me little time to sew but i've been thinking about finishing the bag the whole day so I just must finish it...

This bag is mainly all my husband's design. He's very obsessively organised..hehe..everything must have it's own place..the moment i said i'll make the bag for him he already planned the design..He also picked the fabrics which i must admit are excellent choices..the outside is a luscious chocolate curduroy..

little loop on the strap for his earphone

elastic pocket on one side for his water bottle

Here's what the inside looks like. I love the's a heavyweight fabric and it goes perfectly with the brown curduroy on the outside.

elastic pockets on each side for laptop cables, phone, camera lenses

one padded pocket for his laptop (next to bag wall) and one pocket for A4 documents. Both closed with a velcro flap.

Lots of pockets on this side. One zipper pocket for coins. 4 pockets for pens. one pocket for external harddrive. the pocket in the middle has 2 tiny little pockets inside for cards and..i don't know what keyholder (taken from an old bag and reused here)

My husband is really happy with the bag and that makes me happy too :)

Aida, Zaila tak tahu nak kata apa da..setiap benda yang you jahit semuanya lawa pada mata Zaila..bertuah hubby you;)

aidafiqs adamia said...

i love your skirt!lawa esp part ade lace do you feel after finishing one item?mesti rase addicted nak jahit lagi kan...hehe..

i think i'm going through a nesting phase sbb dah 3rd trimester ni..tu yg asik nak jahit jer..ok..hopefully continuela semangat nak jahit sbb i have a lot more to complete before baby arrives..

thank you!


yes2 blaja la...senang jer...

kak fathin,
it takes a while to figure out bentuk2 dia..opportunity for me to use my brain sikit buat maths + imagination how the pockets will go on the main body. but after that,tak susah pun nak buat..cuma time consuming..

lambat lagilah nak balik...hehehe...meh dtg sini..

both fabrics i bought in John Lewis, Oxford St. The curduroy you can get in the garment section on the 4th floor (normally i don't see curduroy there but i think they started stocking because it's autumn now). the stripe fabric is from the home dec section (2nd floor, i think)

thank you..taklah bertuah sgt my hubby sbb i jarang jahit barang dia...asik barang baby jer...hehe...

Bertuah2, mmg bertuah..heheh..The pictures don't do justice really because it looks sooooooo much better in real life. No doubt, the best bag that I've ever owned! TQ B!

Fedy said...

i second the 1st comment!

u r really2 such a domestic goddess!!

- fedy yg sgt la xpandai n malas menjahit..

john lewis! tqvm my dear. may i know how much of fabrics do i need for making the bag? 1m for each is more than enough, aight? 1m for outer design, 1m for inner design?

aidafiqs adamia said...

Mr Hubby,
mcm ni punya appreciation boleh la jahit barang lain pulak ye...hehe

ade gak jumpa purple curduroy tapi light sikit.kalau kaler mcm jaket imi tu lawa ah..terpikir gak nak wat jaket mcm tu..

kak fifa, but the shop isn't doing well at all. maybe kene jahit bende lagi menariklah kot..

alah takpe...bakat you kat tmpt lain...hehe

thank you :)

i estimated about 1.3m. get 1.5m if you're not sure. the lining fabric you will need more than that if you're making a lot of compartments like this bag. but this stripe fabric is a home dec fabric so the width is more (i think 60" kot) so i got 1.3m also and i used almost all of it..

hilmi zulkifli said...

kalo purple light..mcm the joker dlm Dark Knight plak..brown bag ni perfect la wat blazer tu

Anonymous said...


i dulu pun ada beg camni zaman muda2 dulu..exactly like this corduroy in dark brown..mmg cantik. n still have it..dlm stor je lah. tp i beli je dulu hehe..bila tgk gbr beg u ni terus teringat la kat beg i tu..kena korek stor blk cari ni hehe..
anyway..teruskan la menjahit. mmg cantik semua yg u jahit.

aidafiqs adamia said...

a'ah taufik pun mula2 ckp nak buat jaket fabric yg brown tu. tapi last2 tak cukup sbb kain tu tinggal semeter lebih je..
