First of all, what is a bag-in-bag? It's a travel-related trend we've seen popping up as of late, and we're totally on board. It's basically a skinny bag that fits into your carry on or tote, and contains all those loose ends you want to use throughout a flight, train ride, or road trip. We decided to turn an old laptop case into our own bag-in-bag, equipped to hold a smartphone, tablet, pens, and charger, with plenty of room for a magazine or notebook as well.

Materials:

- laptop case

- VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Straps

Tools:

- scissors

- hot glue gun

- pen or marker

Get your materials in order. We choose purple VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Straps to complement our laptop case.

Truth be told, we actually found this pretty patterned laptop case on Amazon! But it's a great project if you've got a case for a laptop you don't use anymore.

Lay out all of your stuff in your laptop case. Use a marker to mark dots that signify where you need loops or pockets.
