Usually it's Rio making these sorta posts, but I'm gonna sneak one in.

So my messenger fell apart a week ago. For an artist, it's pretty shitty when they're trusty bag/pack/whatever falls apart.

I spent a couple of days shopping around for a bag but couldn't find one to my liking. All I really needed was something that could carry some books, drawing pens, and have custom pouches that were exactly the size of a DS and a PSP. That last one was the hard part, I'm surprised no one's manufactured such bags.


Anyway, being that I'm an artist and sewing is one of my disciplines, I pretty decided to just go buy some materials and make a gamer/artist messenger bag from scratch. The design is entirely made up on the fly (I didn't have a pattern or anything, I just sorta sewed shit together). I'm actually quite pleased despite the fact that the stichwork is a little messy due to the fact that my cheap ass sewing machine sucks (you get what you pay for).



The front of the bag with my floral motif. The panels are made of two layers of thick canvas and a layer of water resistant nylon.


Back of the bag. finally found something to stick one of my bajillion dtoid patches on.


Inside Pouches.


As you can see, the side pouches are spefically tailored for handhelds.

Whole process took about 12 hours from beginning to end and about 40 dollars worth of materials. I think I could do this much faster a 2nd time because I wouldn't be making it up as I go. I think next year when I get my bonus I'm gonna get a nice sewing machine and maybe make custom bags on commission for peeps if anyone's interested.


Also, I wanted to show off something I ordered today.



If your jealous, it's cause you should be. I generally wouldn't drop a ridiculous wad of cash for something like this, but part of it will be reimbursed to me so I'm really only paying like 120 bucks plus shipping and tax. Will take pictures when it arrives.
