Notes

I improvised this design, which is based off the shield I use for my medieval society (On a field verte, a dragon rampent or, countercharged against a bend, or, with two fleur-de-lis, one in chief and one in base). I designed the bag on a grid and then used tapestry crochet in the round to make it. It turned out quite a bit bigger than I had expected, but I can fit my laptop inside.

Inside, I lined it with a heavy-duty fabric and a plain tan cotton. It has a pocket and a few places for pens. I used the same lining on the inside of the strap to keep it strong.

I’m incredibly pleased with how this turned out!
