Lilium Laptop Bag

Lilium Laptop Bag

Sew Sweetness


Finished Size:

Small     13-1/2” x 10”

Large     17-1/2” x 11-1/2”

This pattern will allow you to make a laptop bag in two popular sizes. The small bag is perfect for a 13” MacBook Pro or similar sized notebook computer and the larger bag is great for most wide-screen laptops. The bag is padded with 1/2” foam on the front, back, and bottom, for maximum protection of your electronic device. There is also an exterior and interior zippered pocket. The interior is also separated with a divider, so you have room for both your laptop and charger. What a great way to carry your laptop around in style!


Supplies (the supplies needed in this list will make 1 bag, either the small or large bag):

1 yard of exterior fabric (allow extra for the large size bag for directional fabric)

1/2 yard for accents

1 yard of lining fabric

1 yard of fabric for divider pocket/lining pocket

1/2 yard of cheap fabric (will not be seen when bag is sewn together)

3 yards of Pellon® SF-101 Shape Flex® fusible woven interfacing (or lightweight fusible interfacing)

1/2 yard of By Annie’s Soft and Stable™, available at local quilt shops or on-line

(Soft and Stable is a 1/8” thick, foam sew-in interfacing; one of my testers also recommends automotive headliner fabric in place of the Soft and Stable; you can also substitute a needled fleece fusible interfacing for the Soft and Stable, such as Pellon #TP971F Thermolam Plus fusible interfacing)

1-1/2” metal rectangle and metal slider (find the rectangle and slider in my shop here)

3/4 yard of 1/2” foam (mine was 24” wide)

1/2” magnetic snap (find the magnetic snaps in my shop here)

Two 14” zippers (for small only)

Two 18” zippers (for large only)
