Carry-on Bag

Popping up to New York for a bit next week and thought I'd make a real simple carry-on bag. It's based around Delta's max bag dimensions: 22x14x9". 1000d Cordura nylon. Unlined.

Should've made the handles a bit longer.
Simple straps.
One compression strap.

This is my first zippered backpack. Usually I'm not a big fan of this design because zippers are pretty fragile, but since the zipper doesn't go all the way around this bag it can totally fail and the bag will still function. And, as you can see, it opens plenty wide.

Man + Bag

I was going through some old photos the other day and came across these that I never put up.
24incher, oversized.
I made the bag a while ago. 10oz cotton canvas, 1000d nylon bottom, ACP 3D outside pockets and liner.

Yep, that's a big bag.

The Sheesh Handlebar Bag

I just smashed this out for my friend's ride from CoMo to Salt Lake. It sits on her Surly front rack. Xpac shell + military tent fabric liner (floating) = light and pretty darn water resistant.
My first bag with a covered zipper...I think.

Those loops go around the handlebars.
Velcro'd. Quick 'n' dirty.
Side pouch for snacks or bottle.
There's some padding in there too.
Roll down.
Hope it holds up. Stay tuned for photos from the trip.

Uprise Bakery Banner

Just finished this sweet banner for the best bakery in Columbia.
~109x34 inches. SolarMax nylon flagcloth with Isacord poly thread.

Double-stitched applique.

Lots of pinning and folding. Maybe I need a long-arm machine...
Just kidding.

Stuff sack.
