Fledgling craftsman, preening dandy and man about town.
Here I shall post pictures of things that delight me and poor quality photographs of works in progress and shamelessly encourage you to buy them.
I’m in the process of making a massive bag, using two Continental mountain bike tyres. The outer two strips still have the kevlar beading, I’m not sure whether the added rigidity will be a help or a hinderence.
It’s a pain in the arse when I measure out the lengths to cut them at, but they don’t match up once I’ve stitched them together.
I’ve a design for a pannier/satchel floating about in my head- possibly scribbled down somewhere. This will be the prototype.
January was a write off, but now I’m getting back into making things again. Here’s a saddle bag I just finished. Slightly experimental with an overlap between the two tyres rather than a pinch (these are made up technical terms). I also have the treads reversed (Something I probably won’t do again as it opens asymmetrically).
