A really cool computer bag made from paper

I was totally taken with Sheryl's handmade computer bag made with paper she dyed with Kakishibu (bitter persimmon). She uses a black elastic to hold it closed. Inside is lined with a black paper sandwiching small plastic bubble wrap between the lining and the main covering. This paper has been treated with a special Japanese method that converts paper to cloth.  For a decorative accent, Sheryl used her sewing machine to randomly stitch the top flap.  All I know is I want to make one for my IPad, for my practice books, for my poetry stash and whatever.
