I am officially hooked on homemade gear now! To the point where I went out and bought myself a sewing machine..Now I've just been dreaming up different stuff to make and here is the first project.
I love bags of all kinds, so naturally I had to whip up a little bag for my first creation. I call it the Black Forest Field Bag. It is kind of a mix between a haversack and a messenger bag, made from black 15 oz. canvas. It's got a main compartment with slots for pens, tool, etc., a separate sleeve in the back for an Ipad mini, journal, etc.. and a zip pocket in the front. It's also got some Molle/Pals webbing for adding extra gear to the outside of the bag, solid brass hardware, heavy duty nylon strapping and a strip of velcro in the front for patch display.
Hear is the rear sleeve, with a built in dust cover.
Also made a journal satchel, with pen and harmonica storage.
