This is awesome, I love it! Where did you get the pattern from?
Thank you! I should have mentioned the pattern. I (mostly) followed the Folkwear Kimono pattern. Another advantage of every pieces being rectangles is that there's no real need to get it in paper version or print it at all. I measured everything I needed to know using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Anyone know what the name of this particular pencil case material is?
Don’t think it comes in mesh form, haven’t seen it anyway.
You mean the crashproof stuff Team DSM uses in their bib shorts?
It's just clear reinforced truck tarp.
I just came across someone in Japan using dyneema for bike bags, interesting to see https://www.morimono.jp/product-page/dyneema-saddle-bag-black
Those are lovely looking, though there are number of bag makers making use of dyneema - Straight Cut based in Edinburgh for example. Many boutique makers seem to offer it, and if you're interested in some EU based dyneema goods, Dyborg Gear has been working with it for a while and the goods seem excellent quality
Made a frame bag, in handsome blue.
Pretty happy with it
It fits which is the main thing :)
Very cool, @moocher!
I made a basket bag out of left over fabrics. I’ll add a strap to the rack to tie it down. I debated building it into the bag but I think a permanent strap on the basket for random stuff will be good anyway, I think I’ll combine it with something to keep my lock from rattling.
Cannondale in the background looks sweet.
What are the best cheap sewing weights? I know the cheapest will be whatever I have lying around or some rocks, but I was thinking maybe some large steel nuts (heh)?
Last time I checked, on the internet people were saying they're using steel washers, which I found to be surprisingly expensive for what they are. So I carried on using books.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
