How Jon’s bag turned out.

Some of you may recall a bag I made for myself a while back.

Well, it was Jon’s turn this time. I made him a “camping, festivals and outings bag” for his last festival work, before I resumed making the nappy bag for the baby.

Like my one, it’s 99% from scratch, including things like the zippers and the eyelets on the straps. Only things I didn’t make: the leather belts, the metal bits.

It has:

  • fairly flat colours and mostly stainproof, other than the lining
  • leather and denim features
  • solid belt-style straps
  • a drawstring close
  • a fold-over water-resistant top
  • shoulders shaped to his back with wire and padded for comfort
  • a large main section
  • a water-resistant inner pocket
  • two huge zippered side pockets
  • two huge open side pockets
  • a small sweets pocket at the front
  • ties for attaching loose items like shoes and coats
  • two hooks for clipping on headphones and other items

I think I did quite well.

Yeah, we both kind of like the anime look. 😛

TTFN and Happy Hunting!

    • Lol, he just likes anime style. 😛 He went to a club in a Kantus-inspired outfit last year, wants to go as a One Piece okama Queen to this year’s Halloween bash and owns more trenchcoats, stomper boots, leather and sports jackets than anyone really needs.
