All Hail Scotland

One-thousand denier Cordura nylon & Top Gun poly, 19x12, 6x13 (bottom)
Here's a custom bag for a friend o' mine. Turned out super-sweet, me thinks.
Special features: outside iPod pocket, right-shouldered, extra pen pockets inside, extended flap, Cordura boot.

Yee. I don't think that photo turned out so well...but am I gonna re-shoot it? No.

I don't like sewing these small pockets on the outside of the bag...but I'll do it. I was surprised how well this turned out. That binding tape is amazing. Sharp.

This is what we in the bidness call the Quick Access Drug Pocket...for all those times when your fix just can't wait.

Compute, Compute: Laptop Bag

Custom laptop bag: 18x13, 16x6 (bottom)
Super sweet. This bag really looks like a BagJack because of the squarer shape--only better. Ah! No, BagJacks are gorgeous...I don't know if I'm at that level yet. Ha.

Removable laptop sleeve. I was going to make it permanently attached but I couldn't figure out a good way to do I used Velcro--the quick fix. Ha. No...I think it turned out a lot cleaner than if I'd sewn it to the liner. In the future, I don't know if I'll even use Velcro, as there's not a whole lot of room for the sleeve to move around...we'll see...
