The lining is the same as the olive accent. It is backed with fusible Peltex for stability. For the brown dimple cover I used fusible fleece for a plusher look. I set my machine for leather sewing and used a denim needle. Makes getting through all the thick layers much easier.
This has a pocket on each side of the "spine" and a pocket under the flap.
It is approximately 11" x 13"x3" and has enough room for his laptop and cords along with an additional book. I might do another, after I finish some other projects first!
On another note, I have added to my favorite blogs list "Southern Campaign in NC" This blog is by a friend of mine who is an amazing Revolutionary War history as it relates to our area-buff. Visit it, you will learn something!
