How to Turn a Hoodie into a Laptop Bag

Hoodies haven’t always had the best press, which is a shame. As a utilitarian item of clothing, it is ideal. It is also practical and multi-purpose wear. However it seems there is even more to the hoodie than actually meets the eye, and that is not as a piece of clothing. Somebody, somewhere, had one of those ‘eureka!’ moments, and the next thing you know, you have a bag for a laptop. How clever is that? Thanks to our friends at WikiHow we are able to demonstrate to you just how easy and simple it is to convert a hoodie into a very useful laptop bag.
