Thanks everyone for the kind comments...here is another toy car box with cargo-like pockets. As I was sewing I had another idea for the pockets...I just look for excuses to visit fabric stores.
I also finished a laptop sleeve for my brother (it's quite small with 12 x 9 dimensions). He wanted something retro in greens and black -- not an easy task. A simple design lined with medium weight polar fleece.
Here is a prototype of a non-structured tote/laptop bag (where I realized, that you need to accomodate for the depth of the laptop along with it's height and length when designing the opening; it is not like a file folder). Usually, I like bags that can stand alone, but the simplicity and femininity won me over. It reminds me of those fluttery baby doll tops.
