Cruisies redux

Redesigned the cruisie with mass production in mind and smashed out a few for the Pedaler's Jamboree, this weekend. You can pick one up at Estelle Sewing, in Boonville. (There may be a few at Maude V, downtown CoMo, too.)

Most of these are Top Gun poly acrylic on the outside and Sunbrella acrylic on the inside. I'm done making these outta Cordura nylon -- it fades too much (if you commute every day and park your bike outside).

Simplified the strapping ... and in doing so created a loop for additional mounting options. Take it off your bike and wear it on yer belt, if you want. Go ahead.

Sewing most of it while it's flat and then felling the side seam with the post-bed machine. Turned out pretty good. Need to do another twenty (and lower the table three inches) before I'm really good. :)
