    Default Black Forest Field Bag

    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.

    Also made a journal satchel, with pen and harmonica storage.

    Very nicely done. Makes me want to do something similar sized around Boy Scout Merit Badge manuals.

    I really like the look of that bag. I've been toying with using a haversack style bag for day outings. This one looks really nice and may be a style I steal.

    Wow, you've got some great skills here, and I like the design very much. So far I've designed and made 5 tarps for my family's hammock shelters. This inspires me to get out the thread injector and try something new.

    THAT IS AWESOME! I've been taking my meager sewing skills from leather work and working with a bit of waxed canvas for a bag for bike. I'm already considering a sewing machine, and this has inspired me even more. I'm looking forward to what else you come up with.

    If you are interested in getting a sewing machine you might be interested in this:

    I just finished a couple of small bags today, so no pictures yet. I'll snap a few in the next day or so.

    Nice work on the one shown. One of the best things about DIY is that you get exactly what you want.
